The final Oculus Rift developer kit is shipping now

Virtual reality company Oculus has started shipping the next version of its VR headset, the Oculus Rift Developer Kit 2, to buyers. The company plans to send out roughly 10,000 of the devices from its factories in July, with half of those units with customers by the end of the month. The DK2, which Oculus says more than 45,000 people have pre-ordered at a price of $ 350, is set to be the final development model before the Facebook-owned Oculus releases a full consumer version of its Rift headset.

The Oculus Rift DK2 has a few significant upgrades on its predecessor. Most noticeable is the step up in its display — where the first Rift developer kit displayed a painfully low 1280×800 screen resolution, the DK2 gives users a 1080p OLED…

Delivery drones are coming: Jeff Bezos previews half-hour shipping from Amazon

Jeff Bezos is nothing if not a showman. Amazon’s CEO loves a good reveal, and took the opportunity afforded by a 60 Minutes segment to show off his company’s latest creation: drones that can deliver packages up to five pounds, to your house in less than half an hour. They’re technically octocopters, as part of a program called “Amazon Prime Air.” A drone sits at the end of a conveyer belt, waiting to pick up a package — Bezos says 86 percent of Amazon’s packages are under five pounds — and can carry them up to ten miles from the fulfillment center.

The segment focused primarily on holiday shopping, particularly the annual shopping extravaganza that is Cyber Monday. It’s a huge day for Amazon — more than 300 items will be ordered…

Amazon officially announces new Kindle Paperwhite, shipping on September 30th

Amazon has officially announced the new Kindle Paperwhite — just hours after the company accidentally put the page live earlier today and then pulled it down immediately. It looks like it has the same physical form factor as last year’s Kindle Paperwhite, but has a higher contrast E Ink display, a faster processor for improved page turning and book opening, and a redesigned built-in light. The touchscreen has also been improved, which should make for an improved page-turning experience. Between this and the faster processor, it seems reasonable to say that Amazon felt pressure to make page-turning a smoother experience. Other new features include integration with Goodreads, which Amazon purchased back in March, and a kid-friendly mode…

Ouya apologizes for shipping delays, credits frustrated Kickstarter backers $13.37

Dsc_2829-hero_verge_super_wide_large

In June, some Ouya backers were understandably miffed when the Kickstarter sensation hit retail shelves even before they’d received their consoles in the mail. Those complaints haven’t been lost on the company, and in an email dispatched over the weekend, Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman apologized for the blunder. “It wasn’t OK that some of you — our most loyal supporters — didn’t get your Ouya until after it was on store shelves,” she wrote. For any Kickstarter backers feeling burned by the situation, Ouya is handing out credits for free game downloads. You’ll get $ 13.37 to spend in the Discover Store, and the goodwill gesture also stands to benefit Ouya’s young ecosystem. Addressing reports that the console lacked a “killer app” or hit…
