Back in June at E3, Oculus announced that it planned to release the Rift Consumer VR Headset in the first quarter of 2016. The company still plans to meet that deadline and it is beginning to ship the final version of the Rift to developers this week. Developers that wish to participate "should submit their VR apps through the standard Oculus dev portal," after which the company will "be in touch with next steps." The Oculus Rift software also reached a significant milestone this week with the release of version 1.0 of the Software Development Kit (SDK). Version 1.0 represents a point of stability in the software whereas previous versions often carried "substantial changes in the way developers have to have their apps interact with the Rift hardware." This year is shaping up to have a great deal of potential in the VR space, and it will be interesting to see what Oculus competitors have to offer as well.
