Facebook accidentally left on Oculus controllers frightening Posts
Facebook is actively developing its technology of virtual reality. In September 2018 it announced a universal helmet Oculus Quest, and in early 2019 - an updated version of the device Oculus Rift. They have just about hit the shelves, but the company is only now noticed that controllers consumer versions were "Easter eggs", intended for developers. We are talking about the inscriptions which it is currently able to scare the uninformed paranoia.
The head of VR-units of Facebook Nate Mitchell explained that tens of thousands of sets of Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S ready for sale, were controllers "easter eggs" since the prototypes. In particular, we are talking about the inscriptions of "Big Brother is watching you", "There were Masons," "This place gives up" and even "Hi, iFixit! We see you. " The last message is addressed to a team of experts that test new device on the maintainability of the after-sale.
Nate Mitchell noted that such jokes are inappropriate in the devices, but the recall sent party device company will not. is not of such messages in future batches, because the manufacturer has changed the assembly process and make sure that these labels will no longer be added. Words, of course, does not affect the performance of devices - many of their customers may not even notice, or take for granted.
The new head-mounted display is not yet available for purchase, but the first owners certainly get these same items with hidden messages. Well, they will have a great opportunity to sell these items to the "limited edition" at an inflated price. Although rare, these devices can hardly be called, because we are talking about tens of thousands of sets.
