The Oculus Rift 2 has received excellent reviews and has ushered in a new era of virtual reality. One of the most common complaints is that the device requires too many wires, which are easy to get tangled up. However, our largest contributor, Los Angeles Industry Analyst Paul Mueller, has told us that the consumer version of the Rift will have very few, if any, wires.

"I attended a private Virtual Reality Conference here in San Diego and there were several people who talked about the final version of the Oculus Rift. One of them actually helped create the Oculus Rift Development Kit 1. They say that the Oculus Rift will be completely wireless. It will require an HDMI connection, but that will be from a wireless transmitter," Mueller was told. He also confirmed the May 2015 release date.

The Oculus Rift has been the hottest technology product since 2013. Many have said that the device is simply the most groundbreaking piece of technology since the iPod in 2001. Several movie studios have actually considered creating content for the Oculus Rift. There are also a lot of gaming developers working on virtual reality versions of today's hottest computer games.

Facebook has purchased the rights to sell the Oculus Rift--this has been very controversial. Some people believe that the creators of the Oculus Rift "sold out" to Facebook and now the product will be overly commercial and insignificant. However, the product is expected to instantly become one of the best selling multimedia devices to ever hit the market once it officially arrives on shelves.
