"The hardware is getting out of the way," insisted Zuckerberg.
"We want to get to an input when you can just think something and it happens," he later added in reference to the CTRL-labs tech.
And, in case you were wondering, Zuckerberg nervously assured the crowd that "you don’t have to get holes drilled in your head."
The Oculus Connect keynote included some other news as well. For starters, while not specifying hard numbers, Zuckerberg told the crowd that his company is "selling [Oculus headsets] as fast as we can make them."
The U.S. Government Loves VR. Both NASA and the U.S. military are investing in virtual reality. NASA uses the technology to try to connect engineers with the devices they send into space. Using the Oculus, and motion sensing equipment from the Xbox One gaming console, NASA engineers are developing ways to control a robotic arm with gestures made by the operator here on Earth. The military uses VR to recruit and to train soldiers before they are deployed. The simulated scenarios provide opportunities for teams to work together in immersive, realistic environments to better prepare them for the chaos of combat.
He also boasted that people have purchased over $100 million worth of content from the Oculus store.Notably, Zuckerberg also said that via a forthcoming software update to the Oculus Quest, "if you have a gaming PC, and a USB-C cable, you’re now going to be able to run all the Rift content on your Quest."
Facebook is also selling a cable that will allow you to connect your Quest to a PC.
"This is going to work with most USB-C cables that are out there," he added, before insisting that the Facebook-branded Oculus Link cable would be better.
Which, when compared to the definitely not happening hole drilled in your head, we'd have to agree.
