"Despite its crucial role in reigniting interest in VR, Facebook/Oculus is now just one in a sea of virtual reality companies.

Facebook continues to develop the Oculus Rift; Sony is developing Project Morpheus for the PlayStation 4; Google spurred a cottage industry of low-cost VR headsets with Cardboard VR; Samsung partnered with Oculus to release the smartphone-powered Gear VR, which is now two headsets; Razer is pushing an open standard for future VR software with OSVR; HTC and PC gaming giant Valve announced Sunday that they’re working on a headset called Vive; Nvidia is expected to announce its own headset this week at the Game Developers Conference. And that list doesn’t even include the headsets being made by non-gaming companies like Carl Zeiss AG, or forthcoming augmented reality wearables like CastAR, Magic Leap and Microsoft’s HoloLens."
