Founded by Palmer Luckey, the Oculus Rift is looking to change the way we play and see video games by offering a revolutionary new way of being virtually immersed in your favorite games. This latest kickstarter project is receiving support from some of the most recognizable figures in the video game industry. We’re talking John Carmack, Gabe Newell, Cliff Blesenski to name just a few.
As featured on the Oculus kickstarter page;
Oculus Rift is a new virtual reality (VR) headset designed specifically for video games that will change the way you think about gaming forever. With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, the Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favorite game and explore new worlds like never before.
The Rift takes 3D gaming to the next level. There are a number of VR headsets out there, but none that deliver a truly immersive gaming experience. Most products either lack the technical features required for believable immersion or sit at a very high price-point ($20,000+) reserved for the military or scientific community.
We set out to change all that with the Rift, which is designed to maximize immersion, comfort, and pure, uninhibited fun, at a price everyone can afford.
