The word has been circulating the web that Oculus VR has successfully raised $16 million dollars in venture capital funding from Spark Capital and Matrix Partners. To celebrate this...windfall...we have been putting together an interview with our filthy rich friend Palmer Luckey. We take that back! He's not really filthy.
While we are waiting, MTBS thought it fitting to share some popular Monty Burns moments from The Simpsons! Money fight, anyone?
We are expecting some cool articles on MTBS this week! First up is Kris Roberts and his coverage of Oculus VR at E3 2013. We honestly didn't think we were going to get a chance to see it because our attendance of E3 was a last-minute thing. However, thanks to Palmer Luckey pulling out all the stops to make it happen, Kris managed to try out the demo that everyone has been talking about.
What a difference a year makes!!! There are still remaining questions of course, and the Rift is a work in progress...but so far so good!
MTBS' Kris Roberts got the chance to try out the Oculus Rift HD prototype, and in his brief update email, his choice of words was (is?)..."awesome". We're hoping to get a more detailed update later on.
