Recently the company secured another $16 million in funding to hire additional staff to work on it’s consumer and HD models.

Spark Capital and Matrix Partners, along with Founders Fund and Formation 8 have invested the large sum into the Oculus Rift’s development. Oculus is targeting a 2014 launch of a 1080p consumer version of their VR HMD ( head mounted display)
