Welcome to the second day of Oculus Connect, the Facebook-owned virtual reality company’s annual developer conference.
During yesterday’s opening keynote, execs from Oculus and Facebook made a series of announcements, ranging from a new standalone VR headset to a redesigned interface that pulls desktop apps into the VR environment to new features bridging Facebook’s traditional social network and its VR version.
Today’s keynote is expected to be less newsy. Oculus CTO John Carmack — the famed game programmer behind “Doom” — will take the stage and hold forth on whatever is on his mind (the keynote’s title is “Carmack Unscripted”). The keynote is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT, and you can follow along in our live blog below.
