Oculus Designer Palmer Luckey Leaves Facebook
Oculus VR founder, and designer of the Rift, Palmer Luckey is leaving Facebook but it's not clear whether the departure is voluntary or not. Facebook spoke to UploadVR and told the site that tomorrow, Friday, is Palmer's last day with the company.
“Palmer will be dearly missed. Palmer’s legacy extends far beyond Oculus. His inventive spirit helped kickstart the modern VR revolution and helped build an industry. We’re thankful for everything he did for Oculus and VR, and we wish him all the best.”
Maybe this shouldn't be too much of a surprise. While Luckey had been a vocal spokesman for virtual reality he disappeared after the Daily Beast revealed Luckey's involvement with Nimble America, a pro-Trump "Meme Machine." Though Luckey denied much of his involvement.
The Luck has run out.
