It’s possible that before the end of 2013 Linden Lab may release a Oculus Rift viewer for Second Life if everything goes to plan otherwise don’t expect anything until January/February 2014. Apparently the Oculus Rift consumer version won’t be released until late 2014. Expect the official announcement and timeline soon.
Voidpointer Linden mentioned Oculus Rift in a recent Beta Server Office Hour.
- VoidPointer Linden: Adding support for Oculus Rift is feature-complete and should be released “soon”.
- VoidPointer Linden: More information will be in an upcoming announcement, and I can’t give an exact timeline, but it’s close
Recently there has been news that Linden Lab have finished making the Oculus Rift viewer which is fantastic news. I’m sure there will be huge interest on the grid when it finally launches and many will try this out for sure. It’s the next big thing for Second Life!
More updates soon. Stay tuned!
