Oculus Rift can do a lot better than Birdly

Frivolous applications for Oculus Rift distract from the incredible potential of virtual reality technology. But innovations for gamers may help revolutionise many other industries.

Once relegated the realms of gaming geeks and science fiction novels, virtual reality is now on the cusp of gaining mainstream acceptance, thanks to Oculus VR.

The newfound exuberance has a lot to do with Facebook putting $2 billion on the table for the company but it’s heartening to see that Oculus is aspiring to be more than just a flash-in-the-pan tech outfit.
