Experience the thrill of VR - The Oculus Rift puts you inside the world. Facing a zombie apocalypse is a whole different nightmare when you physically feel surrounded by them. Climbing a rock face and looking down, you actually feel the scale of how high you are.

The two sensors track your heads position, even when you're facing away from it, and the Oculus Touch controllers, one for each hand, represent your hands.

Going beyond games, you can experience 360 degree videos and VR short films. There's kids films, and films not for kids (a horror where you're the victim!). Or if you feel like a journey, take a kayak adventure though the Grand Canyon, or a trip through our galaxy and beyond.

Using the Rift is such an amazing experience, you'll likely bring friends and family over for them to check it out, and you'll love seeing their reactions. You may have already seen some of the YouTube videos where people react to the Oculus Rift, but if you haven't, they're well worth checking out.

While Oculus require a Facebook account for purchased headsets, a Facebook account is not required for our rental units.

Note: For indoor use. Because the Rift uses infrared for tracking, it will likely not function correctly if used outdoors, or where sunlight is on the hardware.

We use Courier Post to send the Oculus Rift to you anywhere in New Zealand, and send you easy to follow instructions on how to set everything up. If you need a gaming desktop PC too, we also rent those.

Included in the package is a prepaid return label, so on the last day of the rental you can drop that off at your local post office, they'll scan it and return it to us. More information can also be seen in our how VR Rentals Work page.

Oculus offer a free download to check your PC's compatibility, this can be downloaded here: PC Check. Due to the complex nature of PC and hardware compatibility however, this should used as a rough guide only and not any type of guarantee that it will work. Also SteamVR Performance Test is free and can be used to benchmark your PC, showing you how well it may run VR.

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 / GTX 1050Ti, AMD Radeon R9 290 / RX 470 equivalent or better

Extra Requirements: You will need administrator access rights on your PC to use the VR headset. If you're using a work supplied PC, please check with your IT department that you have administrator rights.

You need a minimum of 2 x 1.5 meters of free space to use the Rift. The two sensors are placed at least a meter apart in front of you, e.g. either side of a TV. They come with 30cm high stands, to sit them on a table.

Because the Rift uses infrared for tracking, it will likely not function correctly if used outdoors, or where sunlight is on the hardware.

Multiple Rift headsets can be used in one location without any problem from interference.

The Rift, and its two sensors, all plug into your PC, and don't require any separate power supply.

Aside from the gear we provide, you may need:

Desktop PC: If you don't have a suitable PC, we also rent those. You just need a monitor or a TV with an HDMI input (almost any TV in the past 10 years, and most monitors).
