Oculus Rift Kickstarter Promises Amazing VR

Remember that virtual reality headset that John Carmack was smitten by back at E3 2012? It’s being Kickstarted. And with so many gaming industry luminaries like John Carmack, Gabe Newell and Cliff Bleszinski pledging support and interest in the product, it’s tough not to get excited for this product.

At the time of writing, they’ve nearly doubled their funding target and they JUST launched their campaign. What a pace! I hope this VR headset endeavour pans out and that I will be able to own one in the not so distant future.
