The Oculus Rift started on Kickstarter in 2012 and from there it grew into a worldwide phenomenon. After being bought by Facebook the Oculus Rift has become the standard for Virtual Reality experiences and for now is only rivalled by the HTC Vive.
Sporting an excellent field of view of about 110 degrees and 2 OLED displays with each 1080×1200, the Oculus Rift is capable of rendering VR experiences in exquisite detail. It includes an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer to improve tracking accuracy.
The tracking occurs using 2 or 3 sensors and is based on a visual tracking system. The Oculus Rift supports room scale but is less potent than its rival HTC Vive in larger surfaces. For that we recommend using the HTC Vive instead.
