We are to expect keynote speakers to include Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe, Chief Scientist Michael Abrash, and CTO John Carmack. According to a blog post from Oculus, the conference will provide "everything developers need to know to launch on the Rift and Gear VR". Samsung now has its second generation Gear VR out in the wild, which can be powered by the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge smartphones.

In just over two weeks time on June 11, we have the "Step into the Rift" event in San Francisco, where we should be fully introduced to the first consumer Oculus Rift, the CV1. With company founder Palmer Luckey in some seriously hot water of accusations that he stole secret documents from his ex-VR employer, it'll be interesting to see if Luckey tackles any questions regarding this at Oculus Connect 2.

Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
