Not too long ago, virtual reality remained in the realm of science fiction; today, it has become a commercially available reality
At the forefront of the VR trend is the Oculus Rift, which comes as a set consisting of a head-mounted display, sensor and gamepad, with wireless Oculus Touch controllers being sold separately.
Also not included in the package: a compatible PC.
While fully immersive video gaming is definitely the most popular use of the Rift, this VR system also comes with the Oculus Cinema app to watch 360-degree videos.
Furthermore, a number of VR social applications are being developed for use with the Rift right now, with professional applications following close behind. So, welcome to the future.
