Oculus Rift and Out of Body Experience

This is a video of an awesome project I saw at TEI’14 in M√ľnchen this year. Using the Oculus Rift (that freaked out show-host Matthijs van Nieuwkerk yesterday at ‘De Wereld Draait Door’) the user sees the world from another bodies’ ego-centric perspective. At minute 2.10 you see me and Ambra Trotto trying out the thing. It was a strange experience and it reminded me of the out of body experiments using rubber hands, mirrors, and what not.
