Oculus is making it possible to experience anything, anywhere, through the power of virtual reality. Visit to learn more about Oculus Rift and Gear VR. The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality head-mounted display. Software, most notably video games, must be custom programmed to use the Rift.The Oculus suite of hardware currently includes: Rift, our high-end PC VR headset; Touch controllers, to bring your hands into virtual reality; and Gear VR, to bring the magic with you wherever you are—all powered by the Oculus Platform. Since being founded in 2012—and furthered through our acquisition by Facebook in 2014—Oculus has grown from the idea of a single headset to multiple headsets, a powerful platform, and a thriving ecosystem. Our developer community has built nearly a thousand games, apps, and experiences, all available on the Oculus Store.
