An anonymous reader tipped us to news of an interesting
hack for the Oculus Rift: a simulation of being beheaded
by a Guillotine. Thrown together in a couple of days at the Exile Code Jam
, the simulation lets you... "look around to see the blade above, the crowd of onlookers around them, and the executioner who signals the blade be dropped. It also enhances the experience when someone watches the blade falling on a nearby screen and taps the user on the back of the neck at the time of impact."
Just a bit morbid. There's a video of people "playing"
(nsfw language in a few reactions to being virtually beheaded).
