Oculus' Carmack, Abrash, Luckey, and Binstock debate the future of VR

Oculus' biggest visionaries recently gathered to discuss -- and debate, since they don't always agree -- the future of the technology. Here's the record of their discussion.
Last month, Oculus VR hosted its inaugural Oculus Connect developer event in Hollywood, and all of the company's biggest names were there -- and gathered together for a discussion of the future of the nascent medium. The video embedded above is a roundtable discussion between CTO John Carmack, chief scientist Michael Abrash, chief architect Atman Binstock, and co-founder Palmer Luckey -- moderated by co-founder Nate Mitchell. The wide-ranging conversation gives a peek into what Oculus' top minds think -- and don't think -- will be the future of virtual reality. It's not the only video from the event Oculus as posted; John Carmack's improvised 90-minute keynote speech is also available to watch at any time. Abrash's keynote -- which received rapturous applause from attendees -- explores the implications of the coming revolution in VR technology that Abrash expects. Gamasutra was live on the scene at Oculus Connect and prepared a number of reports on the event, which you can read here. While there, we also had a chance to speak to Oculus VP of mobile Max Cohen about the company's expectations for Gear VR.
