I have no interest in the Rifts 3D capabilities. HOWEVER a plausible interest did arise out of it for me.
Use it as to emulate an "eyefinity" display. aka Ultra wide resolutions. especially for mmorpgs.
I have this Ultra wide HD set up for like... Guild wars 2 for example
similar to this image.
Now imagine double that width of the screen, now the character stays centered and my UI is centered like its a standard 16:9 screen... but the view has been extended around me and I can move my head left and right to view the world around me. I have no interest in it going up and down, but I would definitely buy an occulus rift if I could use the said behavior above.
I have no interest in the 3d, or the immersion idea, buy I would like to have such an ultra wide resolution viewing device. and not have to deal with bezels.
A bezelless smooth single ultrawide surround display, that's what I want out of the occulus rift.
Do you guys think the rift would be capable of doing something like that? or w
