Icarus is a custom game controller and art piece in development by the EMC Sandbox team at the Champlain College MakerLab. Using Oculus Rift technology, we created a virtual world through which you can fly, as well as a wingsuit controller that behaves and responds as if you are flying. (Icarus is a greek mythological figure whose wings made of feathers and wax melted after flew too close to the sun and fell into the sea-represents the theme of hubris).
