Facebook Begins It’s Quest To Replace Reality–And More Morning Links

virtual reality


According to our friends over at The Huffington Post, Facebook has announced that it would pay $2 billion for Oculus VR, a two-year-old California-based company that has developed a virtual-reality headset meant to give video game players the most realistic possible experience of digital worlds. What does this mean for Facebook users? Well, their goal is to eventually allow people to slip on a pair of goggles that virtually take you to your favorite events or your friends’ parties. In theory this sounds pretty awesome, until you take the goggles off and realize you’re still just sitting on the couch all alone.
