Running through the Death Star’s trenches

Oulus Rift demo takes you through the Death Star’s trenches.

Have you ever wondered what the Death Star’s trench run from Star Wars would look like in first-person? Sure you have! Or at least, that’s what one developer for Oculus Rift is betting.


The developer, Boone Calhoun, realized that flight simulations (and space simulations) would be a great fit for the Oculus Rift, and promptly went to work on recreating an iconic Star Wars moment. The demo, which can be seen above, takes you through the trenches of the Death Star, so you can feel what Luke felt as he flew through.

What do you think of Calhoun’s idea? Was the demo a good one, or do you think it would be a waste of time to play?

Thanks, Kotaku.
