Oculus Rift support

Any chance to implement support for the upcoming Oculus Rift HMD featured on kickstarter?

Well, last time I used such a device, the driver did all the job. Good old NVidia stereo drivers... But all of this can be build without any change in the engine, you simply have to create the camera controller and render both views as required. If anyone contributes such modules, we could put them into the engine of course.

This is a test i made for my HMD prototype i built waiting for the Oculus Rift.
I have no experience with Irrlicht and therefore i probably didn't all the things right.
You can try it from:
and if someone wants to integrate it to Irrlicht is welcome :D

I updated the demo using the distortion formula and parameters from the Oculus SDK.
Tracker support is still lacking, but as soon as i get the devkit i will try to integrate it.

That's great. I have to try it once I get home (though I don't yet have the Rift DevKit either ... and I got an order number around 20000, so I guess I'll have to wait some more time :( ).
