Because they all do.

People like YOU are the problem who enjoy the enslavement and cattle status.

I tell you something technology can kiss my shiny metal ass if that means we all now live in freakin NORTH KOREA being spied upon by our own governments. Just enjoy your daily dose of media brainwash, enjoy the mental enslavement, government just wants the best for you, oh sure honey. And Facebook too! Now coming to your Oculus Rift,  the friendly Kickstarter company. I could puke on this news.

How exactly does that mean we all live in 'North Korea'? 

Because a Capitalist company bought another company in a capitalist move? 

I'm very confused.

Because Facebook has been proven to sell off you personal information. The Oculus Rift reads eye response and brain activity. Facebook can now sell your thoughts.

An EEG cannot read your mind first off and the Oculus Rift requires a massive refit to act also as a EEG, congrats on sinking yourself.

Oh and I suggest you stop using technology altogether , even the ISPs and the phone service providers share your information, you would have to be an imbecile to share information you are not comfortable with being known to any corporation these days.

Other technologies can't read your response to images. The Rift does. And now Facebook owns that information. Good try though

Sony and Microsoft are both developing VR

SoE (which he mentions) is Sony.

Also, Sony's VR is looking to be only on the PS4, part of why people are so upset about today's announcement.

 

Also, how is Microsoft or Sony any better morally than Facebook?  Microsoft was one of the first people to ever comply with the NSA, without a fight or a word of protest.

If Sony can make money, you really think they'd stop with PS4?

-facepalms- dude... read up on what you are saying... the eyes say very vague things at best and can be altered by any number of things (stress, intoxication, emotional state, etc) so reading a response being a general ballpark ( x likes kittens, y likes puppies) under ideal conditions is possible but that's allot of interpretation which computers cannot do with any degree of accuracy and if the Oculus is that popular (millions) and everyone uses the rift every day a few hours... you wanna guess how much data you gotta sift through?

lol , imho, it was bound to happen,  problem is, oculus wasn't really that good TBH, yet.

Sony , on the other hand has some real improvements in their VR headset, coupled with the move system.

I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't April 1st...

In my mind this isn't much different than Facebook buying Friskies (cat food) or something. Sure they can slam ads all over the outside of it (maybe some prizes in the bags of cat food), but I don't really see the (a good) connection here.

I can see how this would be good for the future of Occulus (mostly via an influx of funds) and I really hope the Facebook involvement ends at money and a logo somewhere on the outside.

Do you want to improve the world? I don't think it can be done. -Lao Tzu

The rough equivalent of a stealth bomber is nothing to shake a stick at.  Palmer and Iribe made the smart business move in agreeing to this.  I think this opens up more possibilities than ever before and is something to be legitimately enthusiastic about.  Before jogging down various mental hypotheses of how Facebook will control Oculus' creative direction, consider that before this the future of Oculus remained somewhat uncertain.  With this investment captial Oculus will be able to make their dream a reality with greater fidelity and over a much broader range of applications.

Facebook is nothing to be afraid of as long as it's used responsibly.  Employers will actually look at the way social media is used by a potential employee before hiring; it can actually be an asset.  Based on Zuckerberg's statement I doubt Facebook will interfere much with Oculus' direction, especially at first; however, as time goes on we'll begin to see a variety of unexpected uses for this technology, not necessarily tied in to Facebook as it exists today, but associated with the Facebook brand.

Lastly, I'll be that guy who recommends watching "The Social Network" to get a better idea of Facebook's history and some of the dramatic changes it's gone through over the past decade.

No need to, you seem to think a device can interpret human reactions but it isn't surprising considering you were claiming it was a mind-reading device earlier. The damn thing is a pair of screens, a gyro-sensor and maybe a camera facing your eyes so tell me where they managed to fit in the rig the supercomputer required to get a reliable read on your eyes under ideal conditions on your surface emotions. Until you explain that head off the thread as you are doing nothing but passing off pseudo-science as fact and it is annoying as Hell for anyone with two functional neurons and actually spent time studying how people behave and attempted to understand them beyond what they project even within an online environment (just using the eyes you can get a basic read using the iris, nothing more as you need the entire face for an emotional read and even then that is basic angry, happy, etc,etc).

@ ,

See, it's not only that Facebook is basically a big machine that is used to gather and sell information - it is also a machine used for social engineering.    That is why facebook dictates to the masses what is good, what is bad.   They love to control.    They love to also market crap to you - all the time.    Did you know that there are websites that now require you to have a facebook sub in order to even make comments on them?   That means if you don't have a facebook account...well touch luck.   Google does this with Youtube and their stupid Google+ that nobody frikking wants.   Imagine what Facebook will now want?   I don't want Facebook in my gaming - at all!  Period...end of story.

Come on guys, what can *possibly* go wrong?

 

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Pretty much ensures that Occulus Rift will not be the gaming PC VR platform many hoped it would be.

From 20 minutes ago on Oculus Rifts official site. A word from the creator about the merger. 

 

 

I’ve always loved games. They’re windows into worlds that let us travel somewhere fantastic. My foray into virtual reality was driven by a desire to enhance my gaming experience; to make my rig more than just a window to these worlds, to actually let me step inside them. As time went on, I realized that VR technology wasn’t just possible, it was almost ready to move into the mainstream. All it needed was the right push.

We started Oculus VR with the vision of making virtual reality affordable and accessible, to allow everyone to experience the impossible. With the help of an incredible community, we’ve received orders for over 75,000 development kits from game developers, content creators, and artists around the world.

When Facebook first approached us about partnering, I was skeptical. As I learned more about the company and its vision and spoke with Mark, the partnership not only made sense, but became the clear and obvious path to delivering virtual reality to everyone. Facebook was founded with the vision of making the world a more connected place. Virtual reality is a medium that allows us to share experiences with others in ways that were never before possible.

Facebook is run in an open way that’s aligned with Oculus’ culture. Over the last decade, Mark and Facebook have been champions of open software and hardware, pushing the envelope of innovation for the entire tech industry. As Facebook has grown, they’ve continued to invest in efforts like with the Open Compute Project, their initiative that aims to drive innovation and reduce the cost of computing infrastructure across the industry. This is a team that’s used to making bold bets on the future.

In the end, I kept coming back to a question we always ask ourselves every day at Oculus: what’s best for the future of virtual reality? Partnering with Mark and the Facebook team is a unique and powerful opportunity. The partnership accelerates our vision, allows us to execute on some of our most creative ideas and take risks that were otherwise impossible. Most importantly, it means a better Oculus Rift with fewer compromises even faster than we anticipated.

Very little changes day-to-day at Oculus, although we’ll have substantially more resources to build the right team. If you want to come work on these hard problems in computer vision, graphics, input, and audio, please apply!

This is a special moment for the gaming industry — Oculus’ somewhat unpredictable future just became crystal clear: virtual reality is coming, and it’s going to change the way we play games forever.

I’m obsessed with VR. I spend every day pushing further, and every night dreaming of where we are going. Even in my wildest dreams, I never imagined we’d come so far so fast.

I’m proud to be a member of this community — thank you all for carrying virtual reality and gaming forward and trusting in us to deliver. We won’t let you down.

– Palmer Luckey, Founder, Oculus
