I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Oculus VR, the leader in virtual reality technology.
Who are Oculus VR
Oculus VR® was founded by Palmer Luckey, self-described virtual reality enthusiast and hardware geek. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund development of their first product, the Oculus Rift, a ground-breaking virtual reality headset for immersive gaming. With the support of top video game companies including Valve, Epic Games and Unity, the Kickstarter was an enormous success, raising over $2.4 million in funding from project backers and supporters around the world.
The team is currently developing the Oculus Rift in an effort to revolutionize the way people experience interactive content.
