When Oculus VR announced the consumer Rift earlier this year, the company had mentioned that pre-orders would start late in 2015 ahead of the headset’s Q1 2016 launch. Today the company’s founder shed some light on the lack of an official pre-order announcement, saying we can now expect them to start soon after the new year. More importantly, the oculus rift‘s release window is still on track.
If you find any discrepancies feel free to bring them to my attention. It would help even more if you could donate more accurate 3D models and textures, as I will probably have limited time to recreate models in the future. Currently I’m looking for a better Super Man model, and any information enter to win an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset about the pictures and fliers seen on the refrigerator. It might be a long shot, or wishful thinking, but if someone could help me out with a license for Unity Pro, since my 6 month demo that I got with Oculus will be expiring and I won’t be able to continue this project afterward.
Right now, New York has a chance to pass the first Fair Repair bill in the nation. We have a chance to guarantee our right to repair electronics—like smartphones, computers, and even farm equipment. We have a chance to help the environment and stand up for local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out by manufacturers.
Oculus Rift is still a PC gaming peripheral, meaning you need a pretty serious gaming PC to plug it into. It’s meant to be tethered to your gaming system. But the new Rift headset not only looks sleeker, it’s significantly lighter than before. It still houses a 2,160×1,200-pixel display, lenses, removable earphones with positional 3D audio and surface-mounted sensors that allow motion tracking, via a small IR camera-stand that sits on your desk or TV.
Unlike other times I tried the Rift, I didn’t stand: I played while sitting in a chair, with an Xbox One wireless controller. The Rift will be packaged with an Xbox One controller and adapter when it debuts next year. Luckey thinks it’s the best gaming controller around: I’m inclined to agree. It’s also a controller that’s already made to work seamlessly with PCs.
