Virtual Reality is coming to the market! From the start of the project on Kickstarter, Rift has been shaped by gamers, backers, developers and enthusiast across the globe. And finally, Oculus Rift will start to be shipped to consumers in Q1 2016 and would be available to be pre-ordered later this year.
The Rift is a system aiming to deliver consumers with amazing VR content, a full ecosystem, and an integrated hardware/software for virtual reality. The idea of Oculus Rift is to reimagine gaming and the system has been created by a team of extremely passionate gamers, developers and engineers.
The Oculus Rift is based on presence, immersion and comfort of the Crescent Bay prototype with an improved the tracking system that supports the seated standing experience, and also a highly refined industrial design with updated ergonomics. In the coming weeks, details about the hardware, software, input and many of the unannounced made-for-VR games and experiences will be announced.
