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. As we continue to grow the possibilities of the technology, we`re partnering with communities and nonprofits from around the world to drive social change and foster a positive impact.
