Thanks to the company Oculus (a company purchased by Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook in March 2014), virtual technology is about to become more accessible than ever before.
Described as “the next drone”, virtual technology will be in the hands of everyday people as soon as next month, on the 28th March 2016 to be precise.
Pre-orders of Oculus’s ‘Rift’ technology began back in January this year. The Oculus Rift box includes the Rift Headset with built-in headphones and mic, sensor, and an Xbox One controller. Rift also includes the Oculus Remote which has been designed to make navigating virtual reality simple and easy for non-gamers.
That is the mission of the company as a whole, to make these games ultra-accessible:
“Oculus’s mission is to enable you to experience the impossible” – Mark Zuckerberg
Gaming is just the beginning for virtual reality plans:
“After games, we’re going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences. Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face — just by putting on goggles in your home.” – Mark Zuckerberg
We think it’s fair to say that the future is about to get much more exciting as far as technology is concerned.
It’s also important to mention that the Oculus software requires a certain level of PC preparation, if you’re thinking about installing it.
The operating system needed to run Oculus is Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer, the memory level needed is 8GB+ RAM, a NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater graphics card and an Intel i5-4590 equivalent processor.
