At a recent pre-E3 press conference, the Oculus team took to the stage in order to unveil just how much progress has been made with their Virtual Reality Headset and while you may think they've been resting on their laurels as almost every tech company and their nan have jumped on the VR bandwagon, it seems like you might be dead wrong!
As you can see from the trailer above, the Oculus Rift has come along leaps and bounds since its initial inception. Oculus have also partnered with Microsoft to enable Xbox One games such as Halo, Forza and Sunset Overdrive, to stream to Oculus Rift via Windows 10.
With Xbox head honcho, Phil Spencer, taking to the stage during the teams press conference to confirm that the Rift will work natively with Windows 10, not only making the whole process easy to set up but allowing the Rift to benefit from using DirectX 12.
This wasn't the only revelation to be found at the Oculus press conference. The VR companies founder, Palmer Luckey, also had his moment on stage and unveiled Oculus Touch, its future virtual reality controller.
While the Xbox One controller will work perfectly well, Luckey explained that the new controllers are designed to simulate a much more authentic hand experience for virtual reality.
Codenamed Halfmoon, there are two controllers, one for each hand. They're completely wireless allowing you the freedom to move and interact with the virtual world freely while utilising the same motion tracking as the Rift Headset itself enjoys.
Each controller has an analogue thumbtack, two buttons and an analogue trigger as well as a "hand trigger" which is used to pick up guns etc. From this point in the example, you could use your index finger to fire it. Haptic feedback is also incorporated, allowing you to fully feel what you're touching.
The rather unique looking controllers are also able to recognise specific hand poses such as the classic thumbs up! Groovy!
They may look a little bit unusual, but I'm pretty excited to get my hands on both the updated Oculus Rift and the Oculus Touch!
Expect some what of a wait however, as Oculus have given a tentative release date of Q1 2016.
