Great so now when people bump into in the street cause they are checking their Facebook they will actually have a reason to not see you. Seriously though just another reason why I am not impressed with this Oculus Rift fad.

Good then hopefully this will drive them to bankruptcy and then we will be rid of Facebook.

Woah, the Oculus guys made out like bandits. Not even brought their product to market yet and valued at 2 billion.
