Thanks to the Facebook Oculus megadeal, virtual reality (VR) has been thrust into the spotlight and is moving away from the low-fi geek connotations of the 90s.

VR as a concept has been around since the 1860s, but until recently was viewed as a novelty – limited to theme parks and science museums.

That's a very nice article metalqueen. The very good news is the price itself where it is more or less
like the price of a mobile phone. Now everybody can buy this Oculus Rift once the mass market it.
Hope that the price can go cheaper. And also to make it wireless with zero latency.
