Update (1/04 12:50pm): Oculus has now announced that pre-orders for the 3D Rift headset will go live on its official site as of January 6th at 11AM EST. No pricing information has been released as of yet. “As a reminder, every Rift comes bundled with Lucky’s Tale by Playful, and we’re also including CCP’s EVE: Valkyrie for free with every pre-order!”

Nearly three years after Oculus introduced us to what a VR headset in the home could look like, it has now finally unveiled the version it will be taking to retail. The consumer version of the Oculus VR headset was shown-off just a short while ago at the company’s pre-E3 2015 event, where we got more information on the hardware itself, how it will be integrated with Xbox One, and what kind of content we can expect on day one. expand full story

But the new E-Ink display equipped Sonder keyboard is looking to bring an even deeper level of customization at a much more realistic price point: expand full story
