 History repeats itself and if anyone remembers the 90’s, VR goggles were all the rage. Nintendo even built a console around the concept, even if it failed miserably. Now you have the Oculus Rift, a headset that uses both a 1280x800 viewing angle and head tracking technology to create a virtual environment.

With the “ok” from designers like John Carmack and Cliff Blesinki the Kickstarter blew past its goal of $250,000. Now it is sitting at somewhere near $900,000 with a month to go. You can see the hardware in action in the video below, but we might get a first impression this weekend since the Oculus will be at QuakeCon. Stay tuned to the site for more details.
