One solution is to create highly specialized controllers that resemble specific objects like guns or, in the case of a tech demo car maker Lexus has created, the cockpit of a new car.
Lexus made the virtual reality demo to let consumers try out the 2015 Lexus RC F before production models are actually available to test drive, a spokesperson told TechRadar.
Called RC F Rift, the experience utilizes elements from an actual Lexus RC F, including the steering wheel and foot pedals, which could make it incredibly immersive.

Lexus built RC F Rift in less than eight weeks and says it's the first simulator that uses Oculus's Dev Kit 2 Rift hardware.

Other driving games, including Ubisoft's The Crew, have been retrofitted or jury-rigged with Oculus Rift support, but never with an actual car seat and steering wheel as far as we know.
Consumers can try the RC F Rift at Auto Show events in Orange County in October, Las Vegas and LA in November, and Detroit next January.
