“The Rift is an open platform.”

By Jenna PitcherOculus VR does not intend to stop the adult entertainment industry from using its Rift virtual reality headset as a platform for virtual erotica, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey said during a panel at the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference on Monday.

“The Rift is an open platform. We don’t control what software can run on it,” Luckey said in response to question about intentions to block X-rated content or apps, according to Variety. “And that’s a big deal.”

The Facebook-owned company plans to begin shipping the consumer version of the Oculus Rift in Q1 2016, with pre-orders opening later this year. The consumer model is based on the Crescent Bay prototype and builds upon its “presence, immersion, and comfort,” hopefully alleviating the effects of nausea-inducing Simulator Sickness.

We explored the dangers of mixing virtual reality erotica experiences like Wicked Paradise with Simulator Sickness in an in-depth feature.

The recent panel was also populated by Nick DiCarlo, VP and GM Virtual Reality at Samsung, Clay Bavor, VP of product management at Google Cardboard, and Sixense CEO Amir Rubin. Rubin stated that 20 percent of the 16,000 developers that Sixense is working with to build virtual reality apps are creating traditional games, with the remainder exploring education, health and other areas.
