The second wave of Oculus' latest VR headsets start shipping in October

After a few stumbles toward the finish line, the first wave of the latest Oculus Rift prototype shipment has concluded. It’s no small number, either. Oculus’ vice president of product Nate Mitchell tells Road to VR that his company shipped over 20,000 DK2 headsets in this initial push. Crazy, right? Consider this then: there are still over 40,000 orders left to fulfill. If you happened to order later than the first on-sale day, though, you may not be one of those lucky enough to call the second development kit your own. Road to VR has spotted a change to the prototype’s order page, however, that should give you a better idea of when to expect a second shipment. Hopefully your Halloween costume isn’t planned out just yet because once your virtual reality goggles arrive in October, you might not want to take them off. If you need something to keep you busy until then, well, there’s always Google Cardboard.
