Mark Zuckerberg on Oculus Acquisition

Mark Zuckerberg on Oculus Acquisition

But this is just the start. After games, we’re going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences. Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face — just by putting on goggles in your home.

This is really a new communication platform. By feeling truly present, you can share unbounded spaces and experiences with the people in your life. Imagine sharing not just moments with your friends online, but entire experiences and adventures.

I am really excited by “studying in classroom of students and teachers all over the world” part. Will every MOOC recreate their learning material to take advantage of emerging technologies like this?

  1. The form factor of the devices needs to change to be something that is more liked and used by people. I doubt there are going to be too many takers in the current form!

  2. Every one who tried it in my family raves about it and are planning to get one. So I am not sure about “takers in the current form”. The content may be a more limiting factor.
