AnimeIowa Announces Oculus Rift Support
Following their Facebook acquisition, Virtual Reality company Oculus VR is putting forth a Social Initiative program to use their Oculus Rift virtual headgear for new and exciting social activities. We are proud to announce that AnimeIowa has acquired an Oculus Rift development kit as part of this charter program and are beginning work on Virtual AnimeIowa. Soon you be able to enjoy the rustle and bustle of the convention in the comfort of your own home. No longer will you need to walk anywhere, be physically present, or get dressed to enjoy the convention. We are even looking into third-party attachment to enhance the immersion; such as tactile support for glomping simulation or an olfactoric add-on for the full con-funk experience. We are very excited about this opportunity and believe this is the future of conventions.
