As the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show rolls on in Las Vegas, a bunch of cool upcoming hardware is receiving fresh media coverage, and among the exhibitors is the Kickstarted crew from Oculus and thier hotly anticipated Virtual Reality head-mounted display, the Rift.
Back in November, Oculus announced a few months delay for delivery of Rift dev kits to Kickstarter backers, and revealed a new prototype that looked very different from the concept renders shown during the crowdfunding phase.
At CES 2013, tech publication The Verge have reportedly had some hands-on time with the device, and their hi-res photos offer a close-up look at what should resemble the final form-factor.
Dev kits of the Oculus Rift are still expected to start shipping from March 2013, aimed at drumming up game developer support ahead of a more feature-packed consumer-tailored version down the track.
There'll no doubt be a lot more coverage of hands-on impressions over the next few days, so keep an eye on the tech sites for fresh impressions of the hopeful display hardware.
