I am another one who thinks that FB purchased the company so that theyn could control who gets to use the technology rather than to seriously push ahead. So it is a situation of hoping that we are wrong and that FB may do something good for everybody else, rather than just to cram more profits in thier pockets. How much money can one group possibly need?

Skeptically waiting

When Facebook bough Oculus, I was a little sad.  I'm happy that the founders were able to make money on the deal but I doubt that FB can move Oculus forward.

Mostly, I doubt that Zuckerberg can enter the gaming industry successfully.  Ocuclus is awesome for gamers.  Gaming can help move VR to the next level. And, Ocuclus is pretty cool for the rest of us too.

I'm waiting to see what FB does with the talented engineers on the team.

I'm betting on the Avegant Glyph as better technology!

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
