Flying Skull VR


I won an Oculus DK2 for an online hackathon months ago. But hadn’t tried building something with it, till I asked myself, “what kind of interesting thing can I do with my DK2? Not just looking around, or other things’ been done by others.”

Then I came up with this idea, to make something I can feel the real and dynamic touches while interacting with the virtual world.

Please watch the video above.

What more can be done?
Making the flying skull shoot fireballs toward the player and he need to evade them.
Adding some emotions on skull. e.g. Maybe getting angrier after being punched.

  1. Is there audio and visual feeback (along with the natural haptics) when you make contact with the bat? That might be cool to see how much presence you can create and to see if you can generate any real anxiety with the bat.

      Hi sorry for this issue! The app crashes on my devices, too. I guess the problem occurs with newer iOS version.
      I may have some updates on the app and make sure it works again.

      Thank you for your feedback,
