Oculus Rift Development Kit


Whole it's far from a consumer product, the Oculus VR Oculus Rift is a surprisingly simple to use virtual reality headset that only lacks software support.

Oculus VR's Oculus Rift could be the device virtual reality needs to finally become adopted by the public and not just tech-frenzied neophiles (and mid-90s Hollywood, whose grasp on VR was breathtakingly stupid at best). It's a $300 virtual reality...

Oculus Rift Review and Ratings


The most comfortable VR headset we've used, the Rift works better than we'd expect from a Version 1.0 product. But Oculus currently ships an Xbox One game pad instead of full motion-tracking controllers, so the VR experiences are more limited than with...

Sharp display with no “screen door” effect ; Comfortable, lightweight design ; Excellent motion-tracking, without perceivable latency ; Surprisingly good built-in headphones ; Good game selection and fun bundled platformer

Motion-tracking controllers not available yet ; Requires a really beefy PC ; Games currently don’t support "room-scale" VR

Despite its lengthy gestation period and shipping-delay-plagued launch, the Oculus Rift proves itself worth the wait. The physical design of the headset is the most comfortable of any VR headset we’ve tried, and that helps keep VR games immersive, as...

Eyes-on with the Oculus Rift's jaw-dropping virtual reality system


The Oculus Rift VR system has been steadily gaining more attention in the past several months, thanks to glowing endorsements from some major figures in the the video game industry and a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that brought in almost...

The one negative toward the comfort is that the Rift's lenses put some extra pressure on people wearing glasses, such as myself, making it feel like your face is being squeezed a little too much. It wasn't excruciating, but it diminished the experience...

Oculus Rift review: simple to set up, very intuitive - but it needs motion controllers


Oculus should have been the hoover of VR - work with me on this - the kickstarter original that created the virtual reality market we now have could have been the name synonymous with the very tech it created.

30 launch games ; Cheapest PC option right now ; Effortless to set up

Lack of motion controllers ; You’ll need a good PC ; Not good with spectacles

Oculus is a solid and basic way to access a full VR experience if the price and PC specs are within your reach. The experience is a literal eye opener too, from games to 360 movies. The software is friendly to use and the initial range is promising....
