Oculus Rift secures $16 million for consumer production

In a release sent to Examiner.com today, Oculus Rift has revealed that they have secured $16 million in Series A funding. This was co-led by Spark Capital and Matrix Partners, while Santo Politi and Antonio Rodriguez have joined the company's board of directors. (Oculus Rift, Tech)

I want to try it so bad, I hope they start having demo units at Best Buy soon for people to try out.

The articles that I read (which included direct quotes from the Oculus CEO) explicitly stated that the funding is for R&D, NOT for speeding up consumer production. Misleading, inaccurate headline.
