The Oculus Rift is a headset designed for specific video games that offer high resolution display, head tracking and an immersive experience that no longer is simply a screen, but a fully diagonal view. The Rift creates a high-end virtual reality environment available at a lower-end cost to those that are currently priced at tens of thousands of dollars.
