Facebook's Oculus Rift: Now Available for Pre-Order

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"After years of development, our virtual reality experience, Oculus Rift, is now available for pre-order!

When you put on Oculus, you'll feel like you instantly teleported into adventures like deep-sea diving, piloting a starfighter or playing in a band on stage. More than 100 virtual reality games and other experiences are coming this year. And long term, I believe virtual reality has the potential to change the way we live, work and communicate in many ways. Today is an important step towards that future.

You can pre-order your Oculus Rift for $599 at and we’ll be shipping at the end of March to 20 countries initially.

Oculus Rift is the product of years of cutting edge research and engineering. I'm proud to work with Palmer, Brendan, Nate, Michael and everyone who has worked so hard to open up new worlds for us." - Mark Zuckerberg

The real world is already amazing enough for me. But sometimes you need a virtual world in order to be able to do things that you can not do in real world. The real world could sometimes be pretty shitty - that's why people take drugs. In the real world you cannot slay dragons, or shoot aliens and giant robots.

This is truly revolutionary with endless possibilities. Flight and all sorts of simulation, exploring the human anatomy from the inside, having virtual lessons and seminars, exploring the universe and its composition, having first hand outdoor experiences to name a few.

Imagine combining this technology with our basic education, our daily communication, and even expressing oneself for arts sake. When we come up with new technologies, there will always be the cons but why focus on those when there are tons of positive use for it. It is our own perspective that we should really be responsible for. Kudos to all the people changing our world for the better.
