Oculus Rift DK2 Unboxing

The DK2 has arrived! Just 24 hours after it shipped it was on my doorstep. It probably helps that I’m in Southern California less than 3 hours drive from where it shipped from, Ontario, CA.

This is just a preliminary post, but here are my unboxing photos. I have since installed it and used it. My initial impression is, I can’t wait until the existing software supports this thing!

My favorite 3 new features are: 1) The higher resolution display, 2) The motion tracking, and 3) The display driver that feeds the video directly to the rift without extending or mirroring your desktop. I was hoping this would come someday, and it has.

Enjoy!

The Oculus Rift DK2 is coming!

I never thought I’d be happier to see a text from my bank alerting me a purchase was made on my debit card! I also just received, minutes ago, confirmation from Oculus that they charged the remaining balance and the Oculus Rift DK2 is about to ship!

With higher resolution, motion tracking, and a built in latency tester, my team can’t wait to continue developing for the Rift.

By the way, if I sound like an over-excited child on Christmas Eve, you’re spot on!
