Hire Virtual reality Equipment.

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, a division of Facebook Inc.

The first Oculus Rift was released in 2016, and has gone through various pre-production models since the Kickstarter campaign, around five of which were demonstrated to the public.

Oculus initiated a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 to fund the Rift's development. The project proved successful, raising US$2.5 million. In 2014, Facebook purchased Oculus for $2 billion.

The Rift has a Pentile OLED display, 1080×1200 resolution per eye, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and 110° field of view.

It boasts integrated headphones which provide a 3D audio effect, rotational and positional tracking. The positional tracking system, called Constellation, is performed by a USB stationary infrared sensor that is picking up light that is emitted by IR LEDs that are integrated into the head-mounted display.

It is completely wireless, so users can be fully engaged in virtual worlds without being tethered to a computer.

The sensor normally sits on the user's desk. This creates 3D space, allowing for the user to use the Rift while sitting, standing, or walking around the same room.

Why Should I Hire Oculus Rift?

At the forefront of the VR game - The Oculus Rift has provided the high bar that all other VR headsets have had to life up to.

Here, we have compiled a handy list of the top reasons you should hire an Oculus Rift for your next event:

But What Should I Consider?

Without an optional third sensor added to your set up, the Rift only allows for 180 degree coverage which can create some blind spots within your content.

The Rift's three-sensor setup is terrific for standing VR games where you don't move around much, but it doesn't quite match the Vive's tracking for room-scale VR in larger spaces.

The HTC Vive boasts better tracking technology. The Oculus has a maximum tracking field—5×11 feet (width-to-length)—compared to the Vive’s symmetrical maximum field of 15×15 feet. The Oculus is perfect however for a small space at an event.
