Oh Look, the Navy's Got Itself an Oculus Rift

Oh Look the Navy s Got Itself an Oculus Rift


That's right; not only does Uncle Sam have an Oculus Rift, he's found maybe the most futuristic-fantasatic purpose for it yet. What you're looking at is just a small slice of Project BlueShark, the Office of Naval Research's exploration of how we'll communicate a decade from now. And apparently the answer they've settled on is "by creating the freakin Matrix here on Earth."

You played video games with an Oculus Rift? Cute. Swapped sexes? Adorable. Call me when you've used it to maneuver a freaking battleship and maybe launch a missile or two

Stashed in: Virtual Reality!

This is the best name for a product.  The name is very familiar to me, yet it's not what I thought it was.  I thought it was some place in space, or deep in the ocean, maybe something from a video game or movie; which there is a movie called Oculus 2013.

An interesting point is:  It would have usually been a defense company inventing this product, not a software company getting crowdfunding through Kickstarter.

When you say best name, are you referring to Oculus Rift or Project BlueShark?

The amazing thing to me is that Oculus seems to have no competition.

Oculus Rift, and it seems like the real deal, any previous ones I've seen, seem kind of cheesy.

Then hopefully a competitor will come out with an alternative real deal so the price will go down!
