Use Google Street View on Your Oculus Rift

The most revolutionary piece of gaming technology in the past decade has to be the Oculus Rift, or at least it is for me. Virtual Reality has come a very long way, can you remember back to the mid 90’s when you could pick up a very cheap gaming kit that resembled an N64 controller and a cheaply made headset that you could play a small array of games on? Well, now the world has moved on from pixelated games and into the real world.

In the past, users have used their VR headsets to view the huge amount of 360° pictures available through Google Street View to varying degrees of success. Now it seems a keen coder has produced a small application with a huge amount of functionality for direct use for the Oculus Rift. If you are lucky enough to own a Rift, why not try out the feature through the download links below. This is currently in Beta stages, so if you happen to find a bug, why not add your feedback in the source link at the bottom of the page.
