Palmer Luckey on the Future of VR Beyond Oculus Rift CV1

Oculus VR are gearing up for the eventual launch of the consumer version of the Oculus Rift. Its been a long time coming and many are eagerly anticipating the announcement of a release date and price, but it’s commonly knowledge that the technology won’t stop with this initial consumer version (aka CV1). VRFocus recently spoke with Oculus VR founder, Palmer Luckey, about the future of virtual reality (VR) beyond this debut consumer product.

In the interview below, Luckey discusses the fact that, despite having been around for decades, VR technology is still in its infancy. At some point the hardware will catch up with the requirements of the software, which will result in ‘diminishing returns’, Luckey openly states. And what’s next for VR then? At this point it’s purely speculation, but Luckey is candid about the route VR will have to take to get to that point.
