What is the Oculus Rift?
The Oculus Rift is a next-generation headset created for virtual reality gaming. The Oculus Rift will work with your computer or mobile device. The Oculus Rift was created by a virtual reality enthusiast named Palmer Luckey. In 2012 he showed a prototype of the Oculus Rift at the E3 gaming convention which gained major interest from gaming media. Later that year he founded the company Oculus VR with Brendan Iribe, who became CEO. In August 2012 they created a Kickstarter project and started to sell development kits of the Oculus Rift so game studios could start creating games and simulations.
The Kickstarter project raised $2.4 million. In the months after, Oculus VR raised an additional $91 million and shipped more than 40.000 development kits of the Oculus Rift, while continuing to perfect an Oculus Rift consumer version.
