10 Hours Left! (updated)

Posted by Oculus (Creator)

We've crossed the 24-hour mark, with over 7,000 Oculus Rift developer kit backers, all of which will receive their kits in December. We can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

With only 10 hours left, we wanted to look back at all the progress that we've been able to make in the last 31 days with your support!

31 Days of Oculus Rift (updated w/ final stats)

We're at PAX today meeting with press and developers. Our schedule is absolutely packed, but we'll try to find a little time to celebrate (and sleep!) this evening.

This is the final few hours. Spread the word and show your love for the Rift on Twitter @Oculus3D.

Thanks, everyone!

- Palmer

      The graphic just makes me very interested in the stories about the Prototype Casualties. Was it because of travel? Maybe from the occasional clumsy sticky fingered enthusiast at hands on demos? Even better if it's some long story that involves a series of accidents that made up some kind of accidental Rube Goldberg machine of prototype doom. Who knows? Well, you guys do, so let us know!

      We updated the info graphic with the final stats, which includes the total dev kits, prizes, demos, interviews, corrected miles (originally we only counted one way miles), and the final prototype casualty at PAX. Needless to say, it was an incredible month of non-stop Oculus Rift Kickstarter magic!

      This is the biggest thing to happen in gaming since the mouse. That may sound meh, but think about it for a second. This is going hit the surface of the gaming community like a planet crashing down on a piñata.

      I'm happy for you and the community for giving new life and belief in functioning VR with rift, and happy that I am one of the 7000+ who will recieve a rift :)
      Looking forward to what especially will come the next year or two from this :)
      Great work!

      Do oculus ready games run on Linux? Or are they MS-based-only?
