The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset should be released sometime in the first quarter of 2016, and it looks like interested buyers should already start saving money. After a recent report said that Oculus Rift VR requires a powerful computer that could cost more than $1,000 to function, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe revealed on Wednesday that the full Oculus Rift package will indeed be quite expensive.

Oculus Rift: Start saving money for a high-end computer, and it won’t be a Mac

The Oculus Rift is finally nearing mass-production, but that’s not necessarily good news for anyone looking to purchase one of Facebook’s virtual reality headsets, because the VR gadget will require a very powerful computer, one that’s going to be rather expensive. And it apparently can’t be a MacBook Pro or any other Mac OS computer, as the Oculus Rift will only run on Windows devices for the time being. More →

Video: This app lets you journey through the Large Hadron Collider with Leap Motion and Oculus Rift

Many things have been said about the Large Hadron Collider that are untrue. The chances of it opening a black hole and swallowing the solar system are close to zero, no matter how many times it occurs in a movie or television show. That said, the Collider still isn’t something you can just go walk around in while on vacation, and since you will likely never actually get to see the Large Hadron Collider up close, wouldn’t you like to experience what it’s like to be a particle flying inside it? Combining the new Collider app with Leap Motion and the Oculus Rift, you now can.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Elderly people react to the Oculus Rift

“My God, I’m not going to electrocute myself, am I?” That was the initial reaction of an elderly gentleman when one of The Fine Brothers handed him an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and asked for his reaction. One elderly woman wondered aloud if the Rift was a “space mask” or “something you wear for the Ebola crisis.”

The Fines are known far and wide for their reaction videos on YouTube, which show kids, teens or the elderly reacting to different things. Recent offerings that were particularly hilarious include teens reacting to the Internet of the 1990s and elderly people reacting to Google Glass.

Now, the Fine Brothers are back and they’ve brought the Facebook-owned Oculus Rift VR headset with them. More →

Headset that ushers in the future of virtual reality finally starts shipping in 2 weeks

Facebook has repeatedly shown us that it is not afraid to bet big on the future. The company sees mobile messaging as a staple for years to come, and it spent an astronomical $19 billion to buy WhatsApp, the biggest name in the business. Virtual Reality is a still-emerging area that could also become a huge market in the future, so Facebook spent a reported $2 billion to acquire Oculus, one of the hottest names in VR. And now, an early version of the company’s Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will finally begin shipping to early buyers. More →
