The DK2 was long awaited! A huge upgrade from the original Oculus Rift Development Kit. As if it wasn't bad enough that you may still be waiting for your DK2. There is now an Oculus Rift prototype that blows the DK2 out of the water.

 

At Oculus Connect this past weekend they showed off their latest prototype, Crescent Bay.  Toting a new display, speculated to be 1440p or higher, running at 90hz, full 360 positional tracking and integrated headphones.

 

Today on the show Abe Hunter of Rifty Business joins us to discuss the latest in VR news.

Is This Real Life? - The Blair Renaud Project, Technolust

Imagine a world where you are being watched, every hour, and every second. A world where the sun forever hides behind the cover of clouds and the streets are paved with the dew of the night. Technolust is set in a dystopian cyberpunk world where you must fight for your freedom from the oppressive corporations and hack your way to the truth.

 

Today on the show Blair Renaud from IRIS VR joins us to discuss Technolust and the development processes required to implement the DK2.
