    The world of virtual reality is finally seeing the arrival of hardware advanced enough to make truly immersive experiences a reality. That's bringing us efforts like the HTC Vive, set to go up for sale before the end of the year. But the granddaddy of them all is Oculus VR's Oculus Rift, long available as developer hardware but seemingly never quite ready to take the retail plunge.

    After some early stabs late last century, virtual reality looks like it may finally be ready to become a commercial success, and we have the Oculus Rift to thank. The VR headset was a huge Kickstarter success, and work has been underway ever since to tweak the hardware until it's ready to hit stores.
