Ok, so virtual reality is still somewhat of a fringe tech in photo/video, but I think that’s going to change very quickly, very soon. Oculus is probably the biggest name in the VR world and their original Rift Development Kit had a lot of backers and really started the whole VR craze. To thank those original supporters, Oculus today announced that anyone who backed their original Kickstarter would be receiving the final production model for free.

As a small token of our appreciation for your support, all Kickstarter backers who pledged for a Rift development kit will get a free Kickstarter Edition Oculus Rift! And like all Rift pre-order purchasers, you’ll receive a bundled copy of Lucky’s Tale and EVE: Valkyrie.

Now that’s cool. To see their full letter to their supporters, head over to the post on Kickstarter.
