This episode is all about VR and in particular the Oculus VR Connect 3 event which was held a few days ago. Being owned by Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg made an appearance on opening day and quietly outlined his plans to take computing to the next level and how they are helping to lay the foundations of a platform that we will all be a participants of in the near future.
We will chat about the Oculus Touch controllers coming later this year, some of the new games and apps that have been announced by various developers, and the hardware specs you need right now to get into Oculus VR. This and more on episode 76 on The Lazy Couch podcast.
