Oculus Connect Applications Delayed, Process ‘Needs a Bit More Work’

Earlier this week Oculus VR, the company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset, announced Oculus Connect, a developer conference based on VR taking place in Hollywood, California on 19th – 20th September 2014. At the time of the reveal the company had said that applications for a space would open on 10th July. Today the company has delayed those applications slightly, stating that the process ‘needs a bit more work’.

“The application process still needs a bit more work, and we’re not ready to unveil it just yet,” the company wrote in an update to fans. “We’d like to ask for a little more patience while we polish the experience, and we’ll have more information soon so stay tuned.”

Oculus Connect is set to be a major event in the VR industry, with talks and workshops from major VR figureheads such as founder and Oculus Rift designer Palmer Luckey, CEO Brendan Iribe and chief technology officer John Carmack. The company has promised that, along with these talks, attendees will be the first to hear about ‘upcoming Oculus technology’ among other things.

It’s not yet clear when the applications will open up. VRFocus will continue to follow Oculus Connect, reporting back with any more updates.
