Says Oculus: "The Rift delivers on the dream of consumer VR with compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for virtual reality. It's a system designed by a team of extremely passionate gamers, developers, and engineers to reimagine what gaming can be."
Developer kits have been available for early adopters (and Kickstarter backers) over the past year but the consumer model will have some design differences.
Reads the press statement: "The Oculus Rift builds on the presence, immersion, and comfort of the Crescent Bay prototype with an improved tracking system that supports both seated and standing experiences, as well as a highly refined industrial design, and updated ergonomics for a more natural fit."
Oculus has promised more details about the hardware, software, input and games in the coming weeks and months.
