After Whatsapp, Facebook is heading for another acquisition. The social networking website is all set to acquire Oculus VR, a virtual reality company. The deal may be struck at a staggering $2 billion in stock and cash.
In a post on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg talked exclusively about his plans to make Oculus a platform for completely new kinds of experience with gaming is just the portion of it.
The new changes would include sitting courtside at a big game, studying in a classroom with other students virtually or getting a face to face doctor consultation from anywhere.
That virtual reality is a next big thing gained more credence last week when Sony showed off Project Morpheus, a prototype VR headset for developers.
Meanwhile, the Oculus team also looked satisfied with its deal and said, Facebook understands the potential for VR and gives it the best shot to change the world.
Zuckerberg’s interest for the virtual reality could be gauged by the statement that he hailed it as one of the computing platforms of the future after desktops and cell phones. He also emphasized on the potential of a virtual communication network, buying virtual goods, and down the line, advertising.
