Curator Notes

The Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset immerses users in a 3D environment that simulates a real-world experience with near-seamless fidelity. This allows for 360 degree tracking in gaming and other virtual reality (VR) settings, and its relative lightweight design was specifically engineered to allow for extended and comfortable VR sessions. An Oculus Rift prototype that debuted at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show unveiled a new feature – spatial audio – which further immerses users into a convincingly lifelike 3D world.
