What is Oculus Rift and what does it do?

The combination of a powerful computer and Oculus Rift virtual reality glasses enables the possibility of unique experiences in fully realistic 3D environments. The helmet-shaped support allows the device to react naturally and realistically to your movements, showing different images depending on where you look.

Thanks to Rift, you will be able to move freely in digital environments (artificial or realistic) and interact with these environments in ways you have never imagined before. All of this can be done comfortably and from any room in our home. Adjustable straps provide a snug and comfortable fit for any user. On top of that, sliders distribute the weight as you see fit, perfectly combining device gameplay with comfort.

What is Oculus Rift?

Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that can recreate 3D images and show different perspectives depending on the movements of your head, therefore offering personalized 360-degree viewing and a very intuitive experience.

It was born as an initiative of Palmer Luckey, a developer who managed to develop the first high-quality VR prototype with the combination of various technologies. In March 2014, with the aim of launching commercial virtual reality headsets, Facebook acquired the company, although it kept its main creator in charge of the project.

Oculus Rift has been a huge pioneer in the virtual reality industry, causing a true revolution in the way we enjoy video games, offering a much more realistic experience than traditional gaming.
