Legendary Doom creator John Carmack bets on the VR company Oculus Rift and takes on CTO role.

Now this is a surprise. Game developer legend John Carmack joins Oculus Rift as CTO. John Carmack created Doom. He is a co-founder of id Software and is one of the driving forces of 3D gaming.


John Carmack says about his new role: "I have fond memories of the development work that led to a lot of great things in modern gaming – the intensity of the first person experience, LAN and internet play, game mods, and so on. Duct taping a strap and hot gluing sensors onto Palmer's early prototype Rift and writing the code to drive it ranks right up there. Now is a special time. I believe that VR will have a huge impact in the coming years, but everyone working today is a pioneer. The paradigms that everyone will take for granted in the future are being figured out today; probably by people reading this message. It's certainly not there yet. There is a lot more work to do, and there are problems we don't even know about that will need to be solved, but I am eager to work on them. It's going to be awesome!"

I am still not sold on this new revival of VR headsets. We have been there twenty years ago. Will VR goggles go mainstream this time around?
