Oculus Inventor Palmer Luckey has put to rest any fears that may reside about access to adult entertainment on the upcoming consumer version of the Oculus Rift.

Variety has the story about the Facebook-owned technology:

Asked about plans to block any X-rated content or apps during a panel at the first Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference in San Jose, Calif., on Monday, Luckey responded: "The rift is an open platform. We don't control what software can run on it," adding: "And that's a big deal."

Luckey's remarks stood out as most of his fellow panelists tried to dodge controversial questions around topics like adult entertainment as well as motion sickness and other side effects of using virtual reality headsets.



So fear not, folks. You'll still be able to get plenty of weird with your future headgear. The Rift doesn't yet have a release date, but Oculus said it will come out in the first quarter of 2016.

Oculus and Samsung are Working on Mobile VR

From the announcement:

We're excited to announce the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, a new mobile virtual reality headset using the Galaxy Note 4, created by Samsung and powered by Oculus.

Over the last 12 months, we've been collaborating with Samsung on the future of mobile virtual reality. The project actually began as an experiment to see if great VR was possible on next-generation mobile hardware. Oculus CTO John Carmack and the mobile team at Oculus were able to blow everyone away in an extremely short amount of time, quickly proving that we were on to something special.

The culmination of that work is Gear VR Innovator Edition, an add-on to the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4, using the phone's GPU/CPU to power the device and the Quad HD low-persistence 5.7 inch 1440p AMOLED screen as the display. One of the best aspects of mobile VR is the completely untethered, easy-to-use experience: you connect the Note 4 to the headset, you put it on, and you're in. That level of accessibility, combined with Oculus software to easily launch and transition between VR applications without taking the headset off, really makes the experience magical.

The device is expected to have a first run some time this year.

Chuck E. Cheese's Virtual Ticket Blaster Experience will utilize the Rift to let players grab as many tickets as they can in 360 degrees. Perhaps not the most exciting use of the technology, but if you live in Dallas, San Diego, or Orlando, you can give it a shot next month.
