John Carmack hired by Oculus VR

The id founder and technical director John Carmack has officially joined the Oculus VR company, which creates virtual reality devices – a subject that has interested Carmack a lot for years. In QuakeCon 2012, he spoke about such devices, complaining about their poor quality for games. He will work first for Oculus, and will stay at id and Armadillo Aerospace.

Note that the Oculus Rift, the device the company is creating, was founded successfully via KickStarter, similarly to another project that should get the attention of any FPS fan: the Omni – which uses the Oculus Rift in order to *really* walk and run freely in 3D games.
