4 years ago Facebook bought Oculus
Facebook has made huge investments in VR hardware and technology. He bought Oculus, a company working on VR technology for $ 200 million (about 12,100 million rupees) in 2014. However, a single product from Oculus has not broken any records of sales so far, which has caused the company a little frustration. There has not been any benefit from this. However, the company expects that in the next 10 years, a good revenue can be generated from the company’s VR headset, because nowadays, many of the smartphones are offering companies with augmented reality and virtual reality.
