Oculus Rift DK1 Development Kit

The DK1 is the first publicly-available development kit made available for pre-order through Kickstarter in September 2012. It features low-latency 3-axis gyros, accelerometers, and magnetometers combined with a 7-inch LCD screen to provide a 90-degree stereoscopic field of view. The LCD resolution is 1280x800, split between both eyes - although the effective resolution is slightly higher as the left and right eyes images do not fully overlap. The image for each eye is rendered as a barrel-distorted image with correction applied by lenses in the headset. The lenses can be swapped out to accommodate some degree of short-sightedness.
