Oculus Rift is the future of more than just gaming.

This is the future. Right now it’s bulky and has to be adjusted for each individual user, but Oculus Rift is the future of gaming, and it just might be the future of how you interact with your PC and home entertainment too. 

That’s a tall order for what equates to a set of bulky ski goggles that sit slightly awkwardly on the front of your face, but the “Rift” is an experience like no other. There was a time in the late 90s where virtual reality was so cool it was capitalized: VR!

I had to facepalm at this bit:
Inside the Oculus Rift headset are two identical screens capable of creating 3D that’s far more effective than today’s shutter-glasses or polarized lens approach. Because each eye is isolated the Rift doesn’t need to resort to the resolution- or frame-rate-lowering-techniques found in these other two methods.
Kind of strange that they'd had the headset a month, and still thought that it has two screens, and that its full resolution...

Typical so-called "tech" journalists/bloggers...

Also it's funny that they mention Kinect and Leap for motion tracking when all the rage is about the Razer Hydra, Sixense STEM or PrioVR. And how they seem to be more interested in VR adaptations of existing games than in "pure" VR games. To me they really don't get it at all.

I fear it's only a foretaste of the kind of articles we'll get when the consumer version is released.
