Oculus Rift Hardware To Start Shipping This Week To Developers

Facebook-owned Oculus, in a press release said that it will start shipping the completed version of its Oculus Rift VR headset to developers from this week.

The press release was publicly issued last night and made this good announcement for everyone.

All the VR developers who are interested in this offer would have to submit their VR apps.

The apps would be submitted through the standard Oculus Dev portal. Team Oculus will review the apps and will be in touch with those who impress them.

Apart from this announcement, there was another big deal issued by the company.

The 1.0 version of the SDK has been finalized as well and will also be available the same week.

The VR developers who were previously interested in using Rift in their games had to work with continuously changing prerelease versions of the Rift SDK.

Some very effective version changes like; like the jump from 0.6 to 0.7 and 0.8, have molded the ways developers had to interact their apps with the Rift hardware.

Various developers have told, the famous website Ars Technica, that the new release would help anyone who wants to develop the apps for Oculus Rift.

It is the best time to get started. Though we don’t know about the exact date, the Oculus Rift is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2016.

Oculus has only informed that the price would be greater than $350. The launched version would have a 2160x1200 display panel.

Apart from this, it will have a 90Hz refresh rate and a space combat SIM will also be included in the pre-orders.

Let’s wait to see what the Oculus headset might have in store for us.
