You can soon watch a doc about virtual reality on Oculus Rift

If you’d rather that your non-game Oculus Rift experiences be nonfiction, it looks like that wish is coming your way rather soon. Next week, Zero Point hits Steam and it offers full 360 degree views of a Department of Defense military training camp, a beach scene and even the extremely crowded LA Convention Center during E3 2013. The rub of the video is that it’s the first of its kind — a documentary about virtual reality, filmed in VR and made for the platform. It’s very meta. Each scene is explorable, with either head tracking, a game controller or a mouse running the action. It’s apparently compatible with all past-and-future Oculus dev kits, and will cost $15 come its October 28th release. However, IGN notes that if you purchase before November 4th it’ll only run you $12. Want a preview before you buy? Of course you do; just head past the break for that.
