What is Oculus Rift?
Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset. It offers superb stereoscopic 3D visuals and utilizes head tracking technology for a highly immersive experience. The device works by creating a 3D image using two high-resolution screens and sensors to detect the user’s head and body movement.

Endless Exploration
