Oculus Rift + Leap Motion = Shark Punch + Game of Thrones #Exergaming VR

Time highlighted the Oculus Rift paired with a Leap Motion sensor to give you your best shot at beating up a great white shark. Virtual Reality superstar Oculus Rift also wowed the crowd at #SXSW incorporating their virtual-reality headset into a Game of Thrones like simulation of "the elevators that carry soldiers on the show's massive, icy wall."
The visuals are built using a gaming engine, and the booth's floor and walls are equipped with rumble packs that help create the illusion of movement. A set of air vents complete the experience, flicking on and off to cool the temperature and give the sense that the wearer has, indeed, exited the elevator into a howling wind above. - via CNN
Nobody is commenting on whether or not these mini-games will ever see commercial licensing, but at least they were fun to play for those that got the opportunity to be completely immersed (visually, auditory, tactile) in an engaging scenario.
