Oculus Research is creating the future of personal and shared reality.

Our goal is to make the consumer virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences that ship in five to ten years great. Virtual reality today is a vast, highly interdisciplinary research space that has only begun to be explored; we are building a team capable of leapfrogging VR forward by bringing together researchers and engineers spanning a wide range of expertise, including:

  • Optics
  • Displays
  • Audio
  • Sensing
  • Computer vision
  • Scene reconstruction
  • Graphics
  • Animation
  • UX
  • Haptics
  • Machine learning and optimization
  • Software engineering
  • Hardware engineering
  • Social interaction
  • Material sciences
  • Perceptual psychology
