Oculus VR Begins Shipping Rift DK2 Dev Kits To Over 45K Customers
Oculus Rift DK2
The earliest devs can expect their DK2s is July 14th. Oculus says it received about 45,000 preorders, but it’s already behind on manufacturing; even though some people were told their shipments were landing in July, most won’t come until August. “We have a team in China working on continued ramp of production at our factory, and we'll work our way through the queue as fast as we can,” reads the post.
As we previously reported, the Oculus Rift DK2 features a 960x1080 per eye display, low-latency positional head tracking, better orientation tracking, and a latency tester. There’s also an on-headset USB accessory port, new optics, and an SDK bolstered by Unity and Unreal Engine 4.
