oculus rift teardown 2

Well, isn’t that interesting. The last thing we expected to see as we made our way through iFixIt’s Oculus Rift teardown was a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 display panels stuffed inside. Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that allows folks to experience video games and other applications in a different dimension. It can make you feel as if you’re in the game yourself. Just check out this hilarious video below of a guy on a virtual rollercoaster being taken aback by the realism.

We knew the Oculus Rift would be using a 1080p panel, but to see that it’s the exact panel used in one of Samsung’s flagship smartphones is quite interesting. Let’s not even mention the fact that the device even uses the very same front panel, holes for cameras, sensors and the home button, and all. It’s unorthodox for sure, but considering how beautiful the Galaxy Note 3’s display is (as we attested to in our review) we’re not sure we’d prefer any other option. The full teardown is right here if you want to check it out yourself.
