Oculus Rift in CTF Consumer Lab2015-03-02
Researchers at CTF are currently testing Oculus Rift in CTF Consumer Lab. Oculus Rift is a technique used in the gaming world to maximize the game experience. Through special glasses the user can see different scenarios and the experience becomes more real, like being in the middle of a 3D movie.
- Within our consumer research we are conducting studies both in our lab and on-site in stores. With Oculus Rift we could create and test different scenarios in our lab without any limitation, which is impossible in a store environment, says Erik Wästlund, Ph. D and Lecturer in Psychology at CTF.
Erik has himself tested Oculus Rift:
- It was a cool and realistic experience. I have tested different scenarios and among the most intense ones was the rollercoaster. The glasses fits tightly, and when you turn your head at different angles the image in the glasses also changes, the whole experience feels very realistic.
