Oculus Rift VR Headset Receives Patent

oculus-rift-patentMuch has been said about the Oculus Rift VR headset, and so it is interesting to note that this virtual reality headset has finally received an approval for a patent application on March 18, 2014, earlier this year. At the very least, this is what was revealed according to the document on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website.

When it comes to Patent D701,206, this particular patent would encompass the “ornamental design of a virtual reality headset,” that has been described and shown off in several images. As for the inventor credits, they happen to list down the likes of Palmer Luckey, Brendan Iribe Trexler, Graham England and Jack McCauley.

In late March this year, Facebook did make an announcement on their intention to bring Oculus VR under their wings for a cool $2 billion, with the Federal Trade Commission finally giving approval to the acquisition late last month. It has not exactly been a smooth ride though, as ZeniMax Media, the former employee of Oculus VR Chief Technology Officer John Carmack, claimed that Carmack and some “others” did provide “key technology” to the virtual reality headset maker in an improper manner, but just like how there are two sides to a coin, Oculus responded earlier this morning and touted that ZeniMax needed to have a “non-dilutable equity stake in Oculus” which the company did not agree to.
