Tomm Pye first told me about this excellent news: Oculus Rift CEO Brendan Iribe wants to eventually give away the headsets for free or close to that:
“We’re not there yet, but we’re sitting there thinking all the time, how can we make this free? You want everybody to play it and the cheaper it is, the more people are going to go out and buy it. Today it’s a $300 dev kit but we’re thinking about how to get it out to as many people as possible.”
That's what I'm talking about. That's what I mean about the Oculus Rift being Second Life's best hope, especially among the coming spike of senior citizens on a fixed income.
