Simbin have received a developer version of the revolutionary Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
From time to time a package comes through the door that generates excitement in the studio. This week the energy level has been quite high since we received a shipment from Oculus VR containing a developer version of the Oculus Rift!
For those of you that aren’t familiar it, the Rift is a high end virtual reality device that was designed specifically with gaming in mind. A Kickstarter was launched in August 2012 and the $250,000 project goal was met almost ten times over, giving Oculus VR nearly 2.5 million dollars to put into development.
We’ve been getting familiar with the device during our breaks and are excited to explore the possibility of using it in the games we develop.
