Oculus Rift Hack Lets Men and Women Swap Bodies

Gender Swap – Experiment with The Machine to Be Another from BeAnotherLab on Vimeo.

BeAnotherLab, an interdisciplinary group of students at the University Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, has relied on an early version of Oculus Rift as part of an on-going research project called “The Machine To Be Another.” The concept is just what the name suggests. An early experiment let participants experience the creative process through someone else’s eyes, in real time. The latest undertaking is even wackier. It lets men and women swap bodies.
