• Oculus has been investing a significant amount of its resources in computer vision technology, purchasing companies like Surreal Vision, The 13th Lab and Nimble. Furthermore Oculus’ newest running partner, Microsoft, is heavily invested in the computer vision scene with Hololens and has some of the most advanced projects in the field happening behind the closed doors of its research facilities.
  • When they were acquired, Surreal Vision’s team outlined their future goals with Oculus. In that statement they announced what they hoped to bring to the table with their research and expertise saying “these technologies will lead to VR and AR systems that can be used in any condition, day or night, indoors or outdoors.”
  • According to Iribe the Rift will have a lifecycle “less than the console lifecycles of five plus years, and closer to the smartphone iteration time of one year.” This means that we might not have to speculate for too long after the release before we hear more.
