Oculus is working on a handful of new VR content projects, but the biggest names dropped at its Oculus Connect 3 conference this afternoon were Blade Runner and Disney. The coming film Blade Runner 2049 and a series of experiences about classic Disney characters are heading to Oculus platforms. Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to 1982's cult sci-fi hit and it was just announced today; it's due in theaters on October 6th, 2017. Oculus didn't delve into details about either project.

In other big Oculus Connect 3 news: The company is working on a standalone VR headset and it showed off how Facebook-enabled social spaces will work in VR. Plus, Oculus is building a VR web browser codenamed Carmel, it's enabling Facebook streaming in VR, and it's offering a third, $80 sensor that turns the Rift into a room-scale VR system.
