As many will remember we Kickstarted the Oculus Rift, thanks in no small part to a short donation drive we ran. We bought in right at the very end, and thus were one of the last people to get our unit. I received the WSGF about 10 days ago, but haven't had time to devote to it.
Seeing that I wouldn't have time in the near future, I put the call out to local WSGF members I knew to be interested. Last night I dropped the unit off with peanut, who previously wrote an article comparing 3x1080p 60Hz multi-mon to 1440 120Hz single screen.
He will be doing the initial unboxing and putting the unit through its initial paces. I expect some video footage from this before too long. After that we should be passing the unit off to TheDestroyer and Zencyde as well. We are also looking at the possibility of setting up an event to show it off and give more people time to check it out. If you're interested in that, please comment in the discussion thread.
In related news, Oculus demoed a 1080p version of the Rift at E3. The overall verdict is that it is much improved over the current dev, and a solid step in the right direction.
