Unboxing the Oculus Dev Kit

Oculus Rift Dev Kits – Now Shipping!

It’s probably quite apparent, by some of my previous posts, that I’m very excited about the Oculus Rift.  Now I have even more reason to be, as the developer kits started shipping earlier this week and soon over 10,000 people will have their hands on the devices!

I’m fortunate enough to know someone who is amongst the 10,000 and so once he’s got his, I will hopefully trying it out soon after!  In addition to this, the Oculus Dev Center is now up and running, which will provide a hub for developers to discuss their problems and share ideas, as well as get their hands on the latest SDK and demos.

Exciting times ahead, the next few months could provide some very interesting product demos using the Oculus.

If you’re going to be getting one of the dev-kits, let me know what you plan on doing with it by leaving a comment.
