Become an awesome gamer with Oculus Rift Headset
We all love to play video games, and some people are just crazy about gamming that’s why it has become a swooping industry worth US$30 billion in the last two decades. We have seen the most famous Super Mario to the very realistic, present day 3D games and this gaming world is growing faster than the Amazon forest. Adding a new variety to this amazing gaming jungle, the Oculus Rift has introduced a new hardware, which will revolutionize the entire gaming experience. Oculus Rift is a new virtual reality (VR) headset which has been designed specifically for video games. With an amazing wide area of view, high resolution display and ultra-low latency head tracking.The Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favourite game and explore them as if real. You not only play your favourite game but you become a part of it and you are into the game.
There are a number of VR headsets out there in the market, but none can deliver a truly immersive gaming experience. Whereas, the Rift takes 3D gaming to the next level. Most products of this type either lack the technical features required for believable immersion or are very expensive and some are just reserved for the military and scientific community.
The Rift, which is designed to maximize immersion, comfort and pure uninhibited fun, at a price everyone can afford. This beautiful concept turned into reality has garnered more than US$2.4 million pledges from over 9 thousand backers and patrons at the time of writing, smashing its US$250,000 goal and nearly 6000 developer kits have been sold through the headset’s crowd funding imitative.
