Oculus, the VR headset maker owned by Facebook, has found itself embroiled in something of a controversy, following the discovery of some odd hidden messages inside new Oculus Touch controllers.
The messages are rather tongue-in-cheek – although likely too close to the bone for some – and are present on production hardware, when they were supposedly meant only for prototypes. Head of VR product at Facebook and Oculus co-founder Nate Mitchell took to Twitter to explain what happened here.
Mitchell further clarified: “While I appreciate Easter eggs, these were inappropriate and should have been removed. The integrity and functionality of the hardware were not compromised, and we’ve fixed our process so this won’t happen again.”
