Oculus Rift

Those looking to tuck into some VR action will be glad to know that the consumer version of the Oculus Rift is expected to begin shipping early next year, with pre-orders opening in late 2015, and the company has given a tease of how the product will look.

According to Oculus, the consumer version features an improved tracking system that accommodates seated and standing experiences, along with updated ergonomics and a tweaked industrial design.

The company will share more details of its hardware, software, input and unannounced Oculus-compatible games in the coming weeks, beginning with its technical specifications next week.

    It looks quite cool, how much will it cost? I’m skeptical about buying something like this, it could just be another fad that doesn’t take on like laserdisc and minidisc players. I’m actually shocked my predictive text had both of those words.

      Between $300 and $400, so likely around R4,500. It’ll be pricy, but it is an impressive piece of technology. I do agree though, VR could be a fad. It’s come and gone before, but I think they’re really nailing it this time.
