Now you can virtually skydive using nDreams' experimental Oculus Rift demo

SkyDIEving, A new experimental demo for both Oculus Rift and regular displays, is challenging users to virtually freefall from an airplane.

The demo, which was announced today from U.K. studio nDreams, is in early stages of development; however, the team has released an early version for user feedback.

"We want to make this thing into something amazing, astonishing, awe inspiring and other ‘a' related adjectives," said a studio representative in a prepared statement. "Your input is going to be invaluable as we grow this thing. Is it a game? We sure don't know yet, and that is the exciting thing about this. Seriously, we're tingling with the sheer possibilities."

With the release of the demo, nDreams has also announced a new competition, asking users to create and submit a video that involves the SkyDIEving demo. The winner based in the U.K. will receive a chance to tandem skydive, with the international winner set to receive Amazon vouchers to the value of £150.

To download the new demo visit the official SkyDIEving website.
