Meanwhile in Los Angeles, Oculus divulge the reason why it collaborated with Microsoft for the Rift virtual reality headset. The latest OS of the latter which is the Windows 10 that will be due this July 29 is the simple explanation of it all.
Before Microsoft Windows 10, Oculus developers faced problems in terms of running an apps or games on a computer that is connected to the company’s VR headset. There was a confusion for the part of the Microsoft software that powered the computer.
Instead of VR headset the software thinks that it was a computer monitor. As a result the computer would act funny since icons would move around. Therefore the developers provided extra load of work to make sure that the virtual reality headset could deliver the best imaginary world without an issue.
In line with this, the Oculus CEO, Brendan Iribe said at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the lavish marketing conference of the year that, “Windows wasn’t built ever thinking there would be a VR headset,” and added that “The company had to trick Windows to make it work, using special code and changing computer settings in a way that would frustrate an average computer user.
But everything is about to change because of the Windows 10 arrival. Packed with the latest Operating System is a programming codes that will make any computer work well with VR headsets, particularly the Rift. The collaboration of Oculus and Microsoft gathered anticipation and surprised the world of technology.
The original plan for the virtual reality is to be launch next year. But as early as now the anticipation of the crowd is high. Giant Facebook leads the path since it owns Oculus. The VR headset product in partnership with Microsoft which is the Rift is tasked to change the ways how we play video games. Let consumers experience virtual worlds, and there’s more, it is nonetheless responsible to change the way man communicate and interact with each other.
