The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, a division of Facebook Inc. Oculus initiated a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 to fund the Rift’s development, after being founded as an independent company two months prior. In March 2017, after 3 years at the company, it was announced Oculus founder and creator Palmer Luckey was leaving Facebook. The Rift has gone through various pre-production models since the Kickstarter campaign, around five of which were demonstrated to the public. DK1 in mid 2013 and DK2 in mid 2014, to give developers a chance to develop content in time for the Rift’s release.
However, both were also purchased by a large number of enthusiasts who wished to get an early preview of the technology. Coincidentally, John Carmack had been doing his own research and happened upon Luckey’s developments as a fellow member of MTBS. In June 2012, during the E3 convention, Carmack introduced a duct taped head-mounted display based on Luckey’s Oculus Rift prototype, which ran Carmack’s own software.

Initial prototypes used a Hillcrest Labs 6DoF head tracker that is normally 125 Hz, with a special firmware requested by John Carmack that makes it run at 250 Hz, tracker latency being vital due to the dependency of virtual reality’s realism on response time. The Development Kit 1 also included interchangeable lenses that will allow for simple dioptric correction. The entire source for the Rift DK1 was released to the public in September 2014, including the firmware, schematics, and mechanicals for the device. In June 2013, a prototype of the rift that used a 1080p LCD panel was shown at Electronic Entertainment Expo.
