Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that has been developed and manufactured by Oculus VR. The mentioned headset has been released on March 28, 2016, but we remind you that Oculus has proposed a “kickstarter” campaign back in 2012 in order to fund the Rift’s development.
The project raised about $2.5 million from the campaign and in March 2014, Facebook has purchased Oculus for about $2 billion. Since the “kickstarter” campaign, the Oculus Rift went through various pre-productions models (about 5), which acted as a demonstration to the public.

The Oculus Rift comes with an OLED display that supports a resolution of 1080×1200 pixels per eye at a 90 HZ refresh rate and 110° field of view. The headset comes with integrated headphones that will make sure to provide a 3D audio effect, rotational and positional tracking. You should know that the positional tracking system is named “Constellation” and it is performed by an USB stationary infrared sensor that is picking up the light that’s emitted by IR LEDS (which are integrated into the head-mounted display).

Since last month, there were reports suggesting that soon enough, you will be able to stream games from your Xbox One console to the Oculus Rift on Windows 10 OS. Well, it seems that, starting from today, the Oculus Rift owners are able to do this.

It is good to know that this feature is quite similar to how Xbox One game streaming works on Windows 10 PCs. Unfortunately, you will not be able to experience virtual reality yet and instead the feature is putting your Xbox One’s screen on a TV in the virtual reality environment, where you are able to look around, but the actual is not in VR.

Below you can watch a video about how this feature is actually working:
