Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift has been a known entity for years now, but an actual consumer-release edition of the virtual reality helmet has often seemed like some far-future event rather than right around the corner. But now, the makers of the helmet say they’re just about ready to release their baby to store shelves, and it’s set to come out sometime early next year.

The final technical specs for the first consumer edition of the Oculus Rift are still to come, but there is some good news for interested parties available now – the Oculus people are interested in making their virtual reality helmet affordable, with pricing expected to be somewhere between $200 and $400. Not bad for something as potentially world-changing as this.

More specific release details on the Oculus Rift, including a more precise release date and exact pricing information, is still to come, but you can expect to find it at the official Oculus site right here very soon.
