It's probably no surprise that I am reporting on this. After all, I have had a lot of love for the Oculus Rift for a long time now. I have been wondering when this technology would be available to the public, and it looks like I, and many others, will be getting their wish in Q1 2016. The Oculus Rift has finally been made available after years of being some kind of weird … [Read more...] about Consumer version of Oculus Rift coming in First Quarter 2016
In case you are wondering, this poster for "lost" is not related to the ABC show of the same name with its weird ending. As far as I know, it isn't related to The Iron Giant, which featured a giant crawling robotic hand. Lost is a short film from Story Studio, an in-house innovation lab focused on exploring and sharing tools and techniques to craft entertainment experiences … [Read more...] about Oculus Rift will flourish with Story Studio
Okay, if everything went right, you should be seeing a video of me two weeks ago at PAXPrime, when I first had a chance to try out the Oculus Rift. If you don't know what the Oculus Rift is, don't feel too bad.

Just putting this Leap Motion on … [Read more...] about Leap Motion to bring more to the Oculus Rift
In case you don't know about the Oculus Rift, but it is a VR headset that definitely has more potential than...Virtual Boy. We reported that Facebook bought the headset company a while ago, but what do they intend to do with it? Well, the answer could lie with last year's Comic-Con. Actually, it was this year, but apparently the Oculus Rift was a part of a lot of exhibits. … [Read more...] about Facebook and Oculus Rift could create a new form of film

Well, I have some either good news or bad news, depending on how you interpret it. Yeah, Facebook bought or, ahem, acquired Oculus Rift for about 2 billion. I'm not certain what inspired this action on Facebook's part, but not everyone is glad at … [Read more...] about Facebook buys Oculus Rift
In case you don't know, there is a big conference in Austin known as South by Southwest (SXSW), and it is devoted to film, music, and other media. Andrew Wilson, from Electronic Arts (EA), didn't really have much to stay about virtual reality (VR), but he did bring up something interesting.

I'm not certain how familiar you are with the Oculus Rift, but it is essentially a wearable headset that good for all the VR games that we were promised in the nineties.
