[WSJ] Facebook to Acquire Oculus - Page 25

post #241 of 383
I have never been a major fan of crowdfunding or occulus rift. The occulus rift, sixence stem, star citizen is 3 of the few projects worth to mention, few serious projects uses kickstarter/indiegogo due to the 5% fee, starcitizen only collected 2 million of the now a total of 40 million using kickstarter in order to avoid fees and only used kickstarter for advertising.

The sixence stem is an interesting product that i considered to back up but i decided to wait until the actual product is out, the stem system would be a very nice addition to a VR system since it would offer 6 axix head tracking and 6 axix motion control all with approx 1ms latancy.

The occulus got most of it's money from investors and the kickstarter campain still helped since it proved that the market wanted it. I still think that the people who backed the rift helped VR a lot since we now got several companies working on products.

fantastic reddit comment during the AMA:


Personally, I'm withholding final judgement until we have more information. But, well... I've got a bad feeling about this

My main worry @ this point is that they are going to stick a Snapdragon or Tegra K1 inside it, then not allow you to bypass it with your own hardware.

I am honestly very distraught and confused by this for a few reasons. One reason being that i was very elated when i heard about the Oculus products and I was excited to see how this whole new virtual reality thing would pan out. I thought it was completely going to change gaming forever, and don't get me wrong it still is. But I feel like facebook has placed a barrier in front of all of this new innovation. One question i had about this was "Why would Facebook ever need Oculus?" which is most likely what many others said when they saw the news.
