Oculus VR accidentally reveals pictures of consumer Rift headset A few days before the company was expected to unveil full details and press shots of their upcoming consumer Rift headset, Oculus VR appears to have accidentally leaked a few images.
The company revamped their website and posted a pre-order page image that appears to show the final consumer version of the Rift.

Oculus was quick to deny that the leaked images show the final hardware, but what we see is quite different from anything we have seen in the past. "Everything in it is ancient, certainly nowhere close to final," founder Palmer Luckey wrote on Reddit. "Enjoy checking it out, at this point, but don't expect everything to carry through to" to the final release.

Among the details we now know from the leaked image are that the position imaging camera is mounted to a pole, and that the headset will also have a forward-facing camera. Additionally, a gamepad will be included in the box.

Any thought as to how much this might cost? Of course, brand new, it's going to be outrageous, probably.

It's the cost of the system requirements that are more likely to break the bank. It requires enough processing power to drive two display devices at 1080p 60hz. It'll probably have growing pains for at least a couple of graphics card generations.

I'm going to be reluctant to pull the trigger at release because I think it's going to be a bumpy ride for several months and I'd rather just wait and enjoy a more refined experience.

When laws allow unlimited ownership of ideas, it is to a society as iron fusion is to the core of a star.

When verified realities lead us to anger, we must learn to reevaluate our beliefs.
