When I thought of the future as a kid, I had two things in mind. Hoverboards and virtual reality gaming. As 2015 draws ever closer, I’ve yet to see hoverboards on the horizon, but virtual reality gaming could be right around the corner. Oculus, the virtual reality company behind the Oculus Rift (feature in the picture below), received $16 million from investors to turn the Oculus Rift into a purchasable mass consumer product.
As of right now, only major developers and those who forked over $300+ during Oculus’ Kickstarter campaign have access to the Oculus Rift. However, Oculus has started selling the Rift development kit outside of the Kickstarter campaign.
