Oculus Rift Kickstarter Smashes Funding Goal

Posted by | August 2, 2012

The Oculus Rift is a VR goggle system that takes the promise of virtual reality and makes it real. The system fits a smaller, lightweight hardware package into a sleek headset. This headset gives the user a huge field of view inside virtual reality, with no lag or latency. The Oculus Rift is a very big step toward full immersion in virtual worlds, and it’s on Kickstarter. This proved a smart move, because the internet met their funding goal of 250-thousand dollars in a few hours, and now the money is piling up toward the one million mark. Check it out. You want one of these things. Kickstarter has the story.

    This is very, very cool. Still, the Oculus Rift is just a step on the path to proper virtual reality. We need to somehow create a system that sends phantom sensations to the mind, so we can experience virtuality in a full-body way. With a kit for modders.
