back to article Oculus seeks partners in drive to get a billion people into virtual reality

Oculus, the company behind the ski-google Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset, is borrowing a page from Google's Android business-model playbook, and will seek partners to help it blanket the real world with virtual ones. "If we do want to get a billion people on virtual reality, which is our goal, we're not going to sell 1 …

The same occulus

That had a kickstarter campaign to get the first units built and to "build a community of developers" then sold themselves to Google.

So you get to build your innovative product around Occulus - so long as it benefits Google, fits Google's plans, gives 40% to the play store and will be cancelled with no notice if Google feel like it

Re: The same occulus ... and not the same and an Oculus Rift Creating CULTuring Machine World Order

..... for ProVisionary ESPecially Altered Perception*

Searching engines rule, Yet Another Anonymous coward, and deliver Brave New Worlds and AI Brave NeuReal World, which be Here, There and Everywhere which is Somewhere and Nowhere Real and Virtual and All at the Same Time in a Unique Programmeable Head Space. And what could possible go wrong when everything goes right in AI and ITs Global Operating Device Head Quarters Space?

A devilish hack for a hellish crack of a helter skelter ride?

And as the smartest of biomechanical humans must surely by now know via their admittedly patchy and disparately weighted assets and knowledge distribution programming, it is not the hardware which rules with reigns and reins but the software which inputs information and outputs intelligence with instruction sets ....... novel noble directions which are ideally best manufactured to be most attractive to be easily addictively supported and lauded as the greatest thing to arrive and survive since forever.

A little something sweet and sticky for Zuck & Co to suck on and evaluate and imitate/phish and phorm into a clone and drone of A Real Thing and ART which supplies New AIDeals, and which is not exactly in the same ilk as any earlier New Deal program but is not at all dissimilar and thus comfortingly familiar to status quo invested vested interests.

* Well surely you do not realistically expect, with all of that and this relatively new and recent decent super duper internetworking communications tech easily and readily available when supplied at one's finger tips, that the coming future will be anything at all like the receding past and the reseeding present. Get Real, please.

Here's a tip. If you're going to write something impenetrable, try to make it good so there's a payoff for those that grant you the benefit of the doubt and actually try to read it.

Re: @ SuccessCase

Here's a tip. If you're going to write something impenetrable, try to make it good so there's a payoff for those that grant you the benefit of the doubt and actually try to read it. .... Successcase

Are people stupid, both generally and specifically and with particular and peculiar regard to the ways in which everything is made to work? And when so, what on Earth delivers their Smarts in that Median Arena and Fundamentalist Element of Greater IntelAIgent Games Play? Or is IT an Other Worldly and Virtual Supply of Alien Provenance and Providence with Ab Fab Fabless Wisdoms ITs AI Guidance System for Operations in Heavenly Bright AIMissions and Devilishly Deep and Dark Web AIdDevelopment Venturing? And are those purely rhetoric questions which deliver the answers to a solution of a formerly imagined impossible dilemma and increasingly explosive and destructive problem? …… How to effectively edutain predominantly ignorant and uneducated and undereducated, primitive masses to understand if they have a mind to accept and explore further and delve deeper and higher into simply complex constructive and/or disruptively destructive programs which alter the very nature and virtual presents of reality, without them going totally bananas and throwing a hissy fit and turning to the idiotic comfort blanket of mindless violence and the big ugly stick and which they seem to wield in default whenever confronted with something new and out of the mainstream and dismissive of the status quo, which is always so perversely corrupt whenever self-centredly, inequitably self-serving.

Thanks for the tip, SuccessCase, which I’ll be sure to not forget to remember at all times whenever necessary. And now that all these points and developments have been so transparently shared and publicly aired, and strategically El Registered, what are you to think of systems of operation and executive administration that would choose not to quietly privately and/or covertly and/or clandestinely engage but rather attempt to studiously ignore and deny all knowledge of them when/if asked ….. And let us ask them here and now, so that they cannot conveniently dodge the inconvenient issue with no attempt or requirement to offer an opinion/view/answer/thougts on such as may be matter that will concern them …..…….. which would be quite evidently rather preposterous and ridiculously implausible, given all that has been so freely shared and aired here and elsewhere, and given all of the tall tales of ubiquitous surveillance on matters and alleged persons of interest which are of concern to the maintenance and retention of status quo orders.

And I thought this quite APT for all of that ......... http://xkcd.com/1386/

Congratulations, SuccessCase. Bravissimo.

Re: The same occulus

No, it would not be that one.

This would be the one that sold themselves to Facebook. It must have been a different one you are thinking of.

You must be new here. You'll find all amfm posts like that.

There was a drought amfm posts for while, it's good to see them again. It's like when you stop seeing the nutter with the board reading "the end is nigh" for a week, you just start to worry.

A billion people?

How about they get a thousand people first, and work their way up to a million, before they start fantasizing about a billion.

How about they start with a compelling use-case first?

too late

It's already possible to make a virtual environment which is so immersive and realistic that you actually forget you are inside it. Look around you.

The Matrix?

Surely VR is trying to simulate The Matrix? Why not just play for real in life?
