If you are interested in the Oculus Rift, but have not yet ordered a development kit you are probably wiling to try it out before making a final decision, just have in mind that we are talking about a product intended for developers and VR enthusiasts and not for consumers (yet). As promised my Oculus Rift dev kit is available for everyone willing to try it out and who happens to be living in Bulgaria, or in a nearby country or passes by Sofia. I’ve setup a system with some of the available demos and below is the address where the Oculus Rift demo is located in Sofia, Bulgaria (Europe).
You can try the Rift at this address:
– Lozenec, Lipa 17A str., ap. 1
– Sofia, 1421
– Google Map
And for other locations around the world there is already a community of users that are receiving their development kits of the Oculus Rift that also are willing to demonstrate them to others in their regions.
– Find other locations and users on this map where you can also see the Rift….

It seems that at the moment the shipping process of the first dev kits of the Oculus Rift is a bit of a mess. The team at Oculus started shipping the first units already, but it seemed that they were only shipping to US/Canada with the international orders expected to start shipping a bit later on. My order number was 142 and the online system still says my order is being processed for shipping and I just got back from the customs after clearing my Oculus Rift dev kit. It has been shipped on 28th of March and arrived yesterday wit UPS and I’m based in Europe. Now I’m off to trying the kit out and you can expect my first impressions a bit later, I’ll also publish additional information when and where you would be able to try out dev kit if you are interested in it and happen to be living or passing by Sofia, Bulgaria.

Here is how the latest working prototypes of the development kits of the Oculus Rift 3D-capable HMD device currently look like and the Oculus team expects that this is how the final Dev Kits will most likely look like as well, maybe with some minor changes. Probably won’t win any design awards, but with the development kits of the device the functionality is far more important and when the consumer version of the Rift becomes available then they can focus on more appealing design. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait around four more months before we’ll be able to actually get the first Dev Kits of the Oculus Rift, meanwhile there should be more information about the device becoming available soon from Palmer Luckey and the Oculus team…
