As a little experiment with the Oculus Rift I wondered if I could view a Minecraft world through the oculus Rift. The answer is yes and relatively easily (certain easier than I though it was going to be). The Oculus Rift used with this was from the first developer kit, there are some latency issues (you move, it moves slightly later)
Download Minecrift from: https://share.oculusvr.com/app/minecrift
Unzip the files and run the installer file.
Now save the profile.
Play the Minecraft normally, but with the Oculus Rift on (it helps to have two people one wearing the Oculus Rift, the other pressing keys to control the movement).
Most people who have tried it, enjoyed it; but you really can only play for a short while. If are susceptible motion sickness I wouldn't try this.
I would be interested in finding out what others are doing with combining Minecraft with other devices/software via comments.
