You Can Die Happy Now: Someone Has Recreated The Death Star Trench Run In The Oculus Rift


Yesterday we showed how the Oculus Rift can put one in the cockpit of classic console gaming fare. And today is an example of it placing you in the cockpit of one the most famous spacecraft of all time, in one of the most famous movie scenes of all time.

It's a bit on the slow side, and also clearly incomplete, but still awesome nonetheless. If Disney was interested in making some serious money… and we all know that they are… they'll make something that's very close and official.
