You can still enjoy the future of face-based displays, even if you didn't support the Oculus Rift Kickstarter in the past. The "Developer Kit," which includes one of the fancy VR headsets and access to the SDK so you can make your own VR dreamscapes, is now available for direct pre-order from the Oculus website. Delivery of the head gear is expected by January.
The kit costs $300 in the US, and $345 shipped elsewhere. By the January ship date, you'll already be able to play Hawken and Doom 3 BFG Edition, although it should be noted, this release is more intended for developers than for consumers.
