While they’re still desperately difficult to get a hold of, this past week I was lucky enough to be provided with an Oculus Rift to take home and play with. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to keep it, but I sure did have some fun while it lasted!
Many things have been said in the numerous Tech Blogs about this year’s recent Consumer Electronics Show. But among all the headlines, the phrase “The Year of VR” has caught my eye the most. For years, consumer Virtual Reality has just been a curiosity with the faint promise of being available for the masses one day soon. With the recent opening of pre-orders for what is considered the genesis of this movement, the Oculus Rift, as well as the strong showing of competing VR hardware at CES like the HTC Vive, maybe this is the year computing changes again.
