Oculus Rift, the minds behind that Virtual Reality device that got acquired by Sa…Facebook this year has acquired the team that brought you the designs of Kinect and the Xbox 360 Controller.
Per the release, Oculus looks forward to Carbon Design’s collaboration to create “great feeling, great looking consumer products.”
Peter Bristol, Creative Director at Carbon Design had this to say:
“A few seconds with the latest Oculus prototypes and you know that virtual reality is for real this time. From a design and engineering perspective, building the products that finally deliver consumer virtual reality is one of the most interesting and challenging problem sets ever.
This is an entirely open product category. With consumer VR at its inception, the physical architectures are still unknown — We’re on the cutting edge of defining how virtual reality looks, feels, and functions.
We’re incredibly excited to be part of the team and we’re looking forward to helping design the future.”
