Looks amazing. No way to really grok this without actually getting the damned thing onto my head.

Facebook Buys Oculus, Virtual Reality Gaming Startup, For $2 Billion

:(

Well. f**k that.

“We believe virtual reality will be heavily defined by social experiences that connect people in magical, new ways. It is a transformative and disruptive technology, that enables the world to experience the impossible, and it’s only just the beginning.”

“Mobile is the platform of today, and now we’re also getting ready for the platforms of tomorrow,” Zuckerberg said in a statement. “Oculus has the chance to create the most social platform ever, and change the way we work, play and communicate.”



I hate Facebook. So. Much.

What a scourge.

The problem that I have with Oculus Rift is that it can easily fall into the hands of criminals.
Sigmund Freud defined four parts of a psyche; the id, the ego, the superego and the stratego. The Stratego being the highest form of morality and scientific thinking.

If every citizen had their own Oculus Rift we wouldn't feel as threatened by criminals who have them.

facebook buying them pretty much ruins the open source nature of it, and it's going to be geared towards casual shit now. not that there's anything wrong with casual users of it, but we finally have the capabilities to make truly amazing VR and it's going to be squandered by shitheads in a boardroom trying to figure out how to make zynga relevant again.

No, I'm suggesting that you may fall victim if you have an Oculus Rift. Imagine you wearing your Oculus and a hacker puts an image of a police in front of your eyes, then shoots you. You may think that you've been shot by a police and have no way of identifying the real shooter. Or if a creep puts an image of Ryan Reynolds in front of a woman's eyes when she's wearing her Oculus. Then the creep have sex with her. She'd be thinking, wow I just had sex with Ryan Reynolds, but in reality she just had sex with some ugly dude.
