LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Want to visit the college of your dreams to find out if you like it? Well, now you don't have to get on a plane or even drive there.

A company called YouVisit has designed a series of college tours for the Oculus Rift.

The virtual reality headset that made headlines after Facebook bought it for 2 billion dollars earlier this year.

Oculus isn't widely available yet, but you could start seeing these devices at college fairs and recruitment events soon.

"We're not replacing the actual visit,” YouVisit officials say. “We're making kids more excited about the actual visit."

The Oculus Rift development kit costs $350.
