VR Inspirations

I came across these two Oculus projects through this post on the Rhizome website.
It’s interesting that they are based on the same input — a bicycle —, but with radically different outputs.

PaperDude VR is a remake of an 8-bit game from 1984. Besides the bicycle input, it tracks the user gestures with a Kinect. It seems pretty accurate, from the video below.

Citytrip goes for an experimental approach. There doesn’t seem to be a goal besides exploring the 3D scenario. I’m curious about the results of such a surreal VR.
