What is the Oculus Rift all about?

Episode 1089 (1:12:08)

Bill from Los Angeles, CA

Bill wants to know about the Oculus Rift. Leo says that it's a virtual reality tool that Facebook just bought for over $3 Billion. Leo has one. It is basically designed to immerse people into a more realistic gaming experience. When Facebook bought it, many of those who backed it on Kickstarter were quite upset. Notch, the creator of Minecraft, cancelled the Occulus version just because of that. So Leo says the jury is out on whether it was a good thing for Oculus. But the creators made a lot of money.

Leo also isn't much of a fan because he'd get motion sickness. It'll be interesting to see what Facebook does with it.
