The Waiting is Finally Over, I Just Got my Oculus Rift Dev Kit

April 5th, 2013 · 7 Comments · 3D / AR / VR / HMD


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.

    Definitely the person I’d want to hear first thoughts from.
    The guy doing vorpx also got his recently. I havent actually seen content from him yet but you should definitely follow his progress.

    That box is rather impressive btw. Pretty impressed by the packaging.

    Have you had to pay VAT and another fees for UPS or customs? Could you say your overall cost of Ocullus?
