VR Links

Handpicked links about virtual reality, curated by Peter Rojas.

Were you one of the lucky ones who got their Oculus Rift CV1 this week? Did anyone who wasn’t press get one? I sure didn’t, mine isn’t set to ship until sometime later in April. I did spend this past weekend building a gaming PC worthy of VR (which mainly meant springing for a GFX 980 Ti). Managed to get it working, though not without some hiccups (one of which continues to persist). 
Anyway, in this week’s roundup we have tons of reviews and other stuff about the Rift, plus a handful of other links I found interesting.
As always, please get in touch if you’re working on something in VR or have a link you think I should include in next week’s edition. Also, if you like my newsletter would you mind sharing it?
Thanks!
Peter
