Oculus has spent a lot of time in the headlines over the past few months. A high profile lawsuit, a steadily changing corporate structure that prioritizes its parent company (Facebook) and tracking issues that still need to be completely fixed make it clear that one of the world’s most important VR companies is in something of a transition.
What started out with a Kickstarter video and a few dedicated entrepreneurs is now trying to grow into its new status as a billion dollar company. As 2017 gets underway, the question is what does the future hold for Oculus? Does Facebook see importance in consistent, successful hardware releases? Or is their goal to leverage this acquisition towards research and development for the future? Hear our responses to these questions, and a lot more, on this week’s VR Cast!
This week we also talk about Oculus forays into the augmented reality world, improvements to the Vive tracker and this year’s E3 (because it’s never too early to start).
