Watch Movies on Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset makes playing video games incredible. Players become part of the game as they feel like they actually step right into the game. The headset can also be used to watch movies. Here is how.

1. Connect your Oculus Rift to your personal computer or laptop.
2. Start the movie on your computer.
3. Hit F11 on your computer to make sure you are viewing in full screen.
4. Put on your Oculus Rift and enjoy the movie.

There are only a handful of movies that are available in Oculus Rift format since the technology is rather new. As the device became more popular with gamers, its applications began to be expanded. Watching movies in three dimensions is something that has become more popular in the past few years. Now combined with the Oculus Rift technology, people will be able to watch and feel like they are a part of the movie that they are watching.

The technology is sure to improve and virtual reality headsets are now being used for all sorts of things including as an aid in surgery. The possibilities for this technology are endless. Facebook saw enough in the product to buy the company for $2 billion just last year.

Watching movies using the Oculus Rift will become more popular as more movies are produced in the format. With the popularity of 3D movies, there is no doubt that an experience like watching a movie in virtual reality will become just as popular.
