Big news in the world of the Oculus Rift today, with the company announcing that EVE: Valkyrie — the totally wicked-looking space dogfighting game set in the EVE universe — will launch as an Oculus Rift exclusive title when the hardware finally releases.
Oculus are also releasing their latency tester hardware, including the firmware, the board layout, documentation, and STL’s of a 3D-printable enclosure, as an open source project. This means that anybody is free to download all the information and start to tear it apart and improve it, or even sell their creations. Oculus hope that this transparency will “ultimately accelerate and improve virtual reality technology for everyone.”
Take a look at the launch trailer for Valkyrie below, or look at this blog post on the Oculus site for more info.
