Oculus Rift Debuts VR Headset and Touch Controllers
On Thursday, Facebook held an event to show off the upcoming virtual reality (VR) headset from its Oculus Rift division. Consumers will be able to buy the headset for an estimated $1,500 beginning in early 2016. To start, it is being marketed as a gaming device. Thanks to a partnership with Microsoft, it will ship with an Xbox One Controller, and it will be able to stream Xbox One games.
The company also showed off a pair of haptic controllers called Oculus Touch. They will "let you reach out and interact naturally with objects in the virtual world." However, Facebook hasn't yet said when Oculus Touch will be available for purchase.
