Virtual reality has been a slow growing technology, but with recent advancements the long awaited experience is now going to be available for household use starting in 2016. A tweet released by Nate Mitchell, executive of Oculus Rift, confirmed the release of a virtual reality headset that will be available to consumers in the first quarter of 2016.
The recent failure of Google glass left consumers with a feeling of hopelessness in regards to worthwhile virtual reality technology. Now, Oculus Rift is promising fans “compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for virtual reality.
Facebook acquired the rights to Oculus Rift last year, which is expected to be the first successful virtual reality device released on the open market. Unfortunately, gaming fans around the world have believed the big promises of developers of this advancing technology, but have been sorely disappointed.
Susan McGalla says one thing is for certain… fans are willing to give the new and promising headset a try despite previous failures of similar technology.
