Ever wonder what it would be like to have your head chopped off? Well, you may soon get the chance to find out. A group of independent developers has created a guillotine simulator using the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

During the experience, you can look behind yourself to see the blade coming down, followed by your POV trip to the bottom of a head-catching basket. The simulation can be enhanced by having someone chop their hand down on the back of your neck as is happens. Such fun.

The program, called Disunion, was made during the recent Exile Game Jam by Erkki Trummal, André Berlemont, and Morten Brunbjerg. It's unlikely that the simulator will become anything serious; the developers were probably just experimenting with the possibilities.

Via Disunion.
