Race fans can now download their own custom experience with VRFocus
Experian has introduced an Oculus Rift-based VR-enabled NASCAR race experience for users to download and try on the Oculus Rift.
The experience is available to download for free now and will be available to buy on the company’s website for $19.99.
The new NASCAR experience is based on the “Live on Track” video that was shown in a NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway last month.
Race fans using the Oculus VR experience can now stream the race from their homes or mobile devices and experience the racing from a unique perspective, in the style of a NASCAR race driver.
Users can also adjust the camera angle of the race by adjusting their position in the cockpit.
“We’re excited to bring this race experience to our racing fans,” said Steve Miller, VP of consumer marketing at Experian.
“As our fans, we want to see the race that we want and how it feels in real-time.”
Users can download the Oculus racing experience by going to the ‘Live on track’ section of the Experian VR app on Oculus Rift and selecting the ‘Race on Oculus’ option.
The race will then play for about an hour.
Users will also be able to upload their own race experience by creating a custom race in the Oculus Racing Experience, which includes a dashboard, team, and team members.
Users must have a registered Oculus Rift headset or the ‘VR Ready’ update installed to download the racing experience.
Experian says the new experience is not compatible with other headsets and requires the use of a headset that supports the Oculus tracking API.
“The experience will not work with other VR headsets, such as the Samsung Gear VR,” said Miller.
“Experian recommends that drivers in these headsets use headsets that do not require an Oculus headset to play the experience.
The driver will need to be in control of the headset, or they may experience motion sickness.
The VR Ready update for drivers will automatically update their drivers to the latest drivers from the company.
The drivers will also need to have a valid Oculus account to access the virtual experience.
This will be done by logging into the Oculus Connect dashboard.
“This new experience will allow them to experience this incredible experience without needing a VR headset.” “
With the advent of the latest Oculus headset, drivers are now able to experience racing from the cockpit of their own VR racing vehicle,” said Experian Vice President of Product Marketing, Matt Condon.
“This new experience will allow them to experience this incredible experience without needing a VR headset.”
The race experience is also available to purchase through the company store, which will provide additional benefits.
Users with a qualifying driver seat in a race can also access the race experience on a new app called VR Track, which is also free.
For those not interested in racing but still want to experience the game, the Oculus Race Experience also comes with an Oculus Touch controller and the Oculus App, which allows users to control the race.
“Fans can now use the Oculus app to customize their own virtual race experience and create their own tracks to play in the game,” said Condon in a press release.
“Drivers can even take the racing virtual reality experience to their homes and work locations.”
VRFocus will continue to follow the development of this and other VR-related products and will bring you the latest news on all things VR.
