I checked out the Occulus Rift and was able to hold it in my hands. It was an older version and I tried on the headset and found it super cool.
The company started out with a vision and was purchased by social media giant Facebook for $1 billion with a vision to change how the world sees through a pair of virtual lenses.
VR is going to be big in my opinion. We will carry a headset with us like we do our mobile phones once the size can be made more compatible to walk around with. VR headsets will be our alternate pair of glasses or contact lenses.
