Rift Cart Fighter (Rift + Hydra)

I'm thinking about making a crude cart racing game with the Rift and Hydra where you can pull others off their carts, punch, slap, even shoot or throw things at them with weapons you can pick up off the ground as you drive. With the hydra and rift this is possible because you can use the thumbstick to drive. Plus, you're sitting down, which adds 10x the realism. Sound fun?

    Sounds like an awesome game. Couldn't you use the hydra to control a virtual steering wheel rather than use the thumbstick? Put your hand near the wheel and hold a button to grab it and steer, something like that? Then you could steer with one hand, grab, punch, slap, throw with the other?

    Watching this thread with interest.

    Yeah about that, my idea was that players would basically be in little chairs or carts that are operated using a thumbstick, that frees up both hands and arms. Think of powered wheelchairs and how those are operated.
