Oculus Rift

Rift at our home office

I finally have my Oculus Rift. These are the first consumer-priced VR goggles that deliver a satisfying virtual reality experience.

Rift the hardware sets up an incredible standard of quality that is hard to beat. Everything that has been done here has been done properly. It feels enjoyable wear that could be weared indefinitely if it didn't get warm inside.

If these problems persist for some reason, I may have to avoid the future Oculus products and their app store. There are several reasons why:

I enjoy playing the games I got along the HMD and the whole thing jet-fueled some of my few VR related projects I have had in the plans since DK1.

And this time, the world is ready for VR.
