One year with Oculus Rift

By | 3D graphics | No Comments

Yesterday the consumer version of Oculus Rift has been finally released and now the first consumer virtual reality headset is available for pre-order. The Rift, developed by Oculus VR (a company acquired in 2014 by Facebook) has brought immersive virtual reality back to the attention of the public after the progressive lost of importance and interest from both consumers and companies mainly in the last decade. The reason of that was probably the fact that immersive virtual reality was at a a stage where it was impossible to use it without wearing heavy and bulky pieces of equipment installed in specific conceived environments.

The first prototype was assembled in a farm outside Turin because of a worker’s strike in the Bertone factory. “Countach!” is apparently the word that was pronounced by a farmer seeing the car body for the first time and before the wheels were assembled.

Syd Mead. After a long time, still the best concept artist and futurist in my opinion. I saw his work for the first time almost 20 years ago, that book had this image as a cover. I suddenly fell in love with design and illustration style. Today… exactly the same emotions.
