Facebook Buys Oculus VR for $2 Billion

How come people only post the good stuff that happens to them on their walls? You know you've seen all those creepy guys from high school liking your wife's pictures. Now imagine they've got their VR goggles on and a Nintendo Power Glove to boot.

Oculus VR wrote on their blog announcing the news:
A few months ago, Mark, Chris, and Cory from the Facebook team came down to visit our office, see the latest demos, and discuss how we could work together to bring our vision to millions of people. As we talked more, we discovered the two teams shared an even deeper vision of creating a new platform for interaction that allows billions of people to connect in a way never before possible.
