Video: Half-Life 2 modded for Oculus Rift - with gun tracking!

A crafty modder has claimed to have tweaked Half-Life 2 to support head and gun tracking in preparation for Oculus Rift.

Basically, if you can hold off being sick all over the lounge carpet, it's the virtual reality mod of your dreams.

Creator Nathan Andrews explains: "This video shows a handful of scenes of me using the head and weapon tracking using two hillcrest trackers (the same ones that John Carmack used for the Doom 3 BFG demos of the early oculus rift prototype).

"This video was made using my modified HMZ-T1 but others have played it on DIY rifts with the vireio stereo/warp drivers."

VR versions of Hawken and Doom 3: BFG Edition are already confirmed. Get to work, Valve people.
