“I think I’ve seen five or six computer demos in my life that made me think the world was about to change,” he says. “Apple II, Netscape, Google, iPhone … then Oculus. It was that kind of amazing.”

Oculus Rift Developer DK2 Kit Countdown
“The first consumer version will be a lot better than DK2 [the current developer kit] – a lot better. There’s a lot of unannounced things we can’t talk about, but it’s going to be a lot smaller, a lot lighter, cheaper, wider field of view, higher resolution and higher framerate. DK2 wasn’t designed to be the thinnest or lightest thing we could make, or the cheapest for that matter: it was meant to be something we could get out quickly, that did all the functions we needed it to, very reliably ”

Virtual Reality Has Finally Arrived
The Oculus Rift represents the future of virtual reality and provides the first ever truly life-like VR experience with no lag or eye strain.
The development kit we use to prepare our simulations for VR is the result of one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns ever, having raised close to $2.5 million dollars.
In March of 2014, the Oculus Rift was purchased by Facebook for $2 billion dollars and a commitment to help change the world with this amazing technology.
