Zuckerberg is testifying tomorrow in the court case against Oculus
I'm really curious to see the outcome of this. I feel like Oculus hit at the perfect time to make a splash, but if it was based on stolen technology it could really take the wind out of VR in general.
Do you think Palmer stole the tech? Does it matter? Maybe the time for VR had just come and similar technologies were all emerging at the same time anyway.

Interesting. Time will tell if there's any substance to this or if it's like Facebook said and just sour grapes over passing on Oculus. I don't think it will derail VR as a whole, but it might, depending on the outcome of the trial, derail Oculus ... Which, as a Gear VR owner, is a shame. ;-)

I don't know why, but I think it doesn't should involve Facebook, if a group of employees broke their contract with Zenimax those are the ones that should be on trials.
Sounds a little clickbait trial actually :P

My guess is that they are just trying to determine the extent of Facebook's knowledge / compliance in this.

Whoa. So Zenimax was just granted a settlement of $500 MILLION!
Even Facebook feels the pain when they get dinged for a cool half-billion.
