If you’ve followed the Oculus Rift story like TatWza, you’ve probably been disappointed several times by broken promises for release dates. The hype around this virtual reality device has been building since 2013, when it was honored as one of the top inventions of the year. Since then, Facebook put up $2 Billion and purchased Oculus Rift and the company is confident that it will be released in the first quarter of 2016.

Mark Zuckerberg usually knows what he’s doing when he makes a merger with a company. Although the headphones and 3D display were integrated to enhance gaming, Facebook plans to use this tool as a means for enhancing communication. (This could get very interesting!) The goggles come with a 100-degree field of view, extending beyond viewers’ natural peripheral vision. An accelerometer, gyroscope and compass track the position of your head and sync the visuals to the direction where you’re looking. Developers are invited to start creating applications, and orders will be taken later this year. The price has yet to be revealed.
