Oculus Rift bought by Facebook

I really like Oculus Rift. It's fun, interesting and has great potential. This might be old news to you, but I just read that Facebook bought Oculus VR, the company responsible for the Oculus Rift virtual reality gaming headset sometime around March 2014.

"This is just the start," said Zuckerberg in a blog post announcing the deal. "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."

I'll bet its just the start you twat.

Quote from Twitter user @avestal
"I Kickstarted the Oculus Rift, what do I get?" You get a lesson in how capitalism works.

One user points out that "Facebook is known for it's intrusive tracking of users, not to mention it's extreme focus on advertisement, intrusive logins, and focus on linking to real-life data collection," adding that there are no guarantees that device will not incorporate some or all of these features in the future.
