Through the acquisition of Oculus with $ 2 billion , Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes virtual reality platform could be the next big computing . The first is the desktop , and then the next cell will be virtual reality .

 

Facebook made ​​the world astonished to spend $ 2 billion announced acquisition firm Oculus Rift , a virtual reality game company . Oculus known for headsets bring immersive experience , which is mixed with the users as real context . However, if no acquisition of Facebook , the headset is not create any impression whatsoever.

 

Department Oculus buy Facebook : Virtual reality will be the next big thing mankind

 

You ‘ll feel like you ‘re sitting in a chair in the room playing games , studying in a classroom with students and teachers around the world , or directly to the doctor ‘s advice – only Oculus wearing the headphones at home .

When Facebook bought Instagram for $ 1 billion, they call it a perfect combination . Because after all , Facebook is a photo-sharing site . Instagram is ” eat ” into Facebook’s main business is sharing photos . When Google paid $ 3.2 billion to buy Nest , everyone can see it is business sense . Google is developing appliances for automation and the Internet of Things .

WhatsApp When Facebook bought for $ 19 billion, meaning that it will have a messaging application with 1 billion users . WhatsApp is a form of social networking and how it is also a threat to Facebook , the company has its own messaging service .

But Oculus Rift , why ? Oculus Rift is not a social platform . At first, it does threaten Facebook , and also in the long term can not . So why did Facebook buy this company ? There are 2 reasons closely related to each other to explain the deal .

 

Facebook buy Oculus: Virtual reality is the destination of the future?

The first reason is the most direct and what CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said . Facebook boss believes virtual reality platform could be the next big computing . The first is the desktop , mobile , and then followed by Mark believes that virtual reality .

“We will turn into a platform for Oculus much different experience ,” Zuckerberg said the deal announced . ” You ‘ll feel like you ‘re sitting in a chair in the room playing games , studying in a classroom with students and teachers around the world , or directly to the doctor ‘s advice – only glasses by sitting at home . This is a new media platform . ”

Some doubts about Zuckerberg’s vision . In general, people do not like to wear glasses at home . It’s one of the reasons why 3D TV is not fascinated mankind . Immersive experience of Oculus lens is really great , according to many who have been wearing glasses Oculus , but it has yet to attract the public .

Definitely , worth $ 2 billion deal makes Facebook – Oculus sounds big , but the payment terms are good for Facebook . They spent $ 400 million in cash and used to purchase 23.1 million shares of Oculus . There are also additional bonuses of $ 300 million .

Surely Facebook will not be judged on the deal Oculus at least 3 more years . Currently , we are focusing on the evaluation of the success of Facebook and of course buy Instagram , WhatsApp both .

 

In addition, investors are very interested in the technology companies invest heavily for the future . Facebook shares have soared in the days after the takeover announcement WhatsApp . Typically , the company stock price dropped after the acquisition because they reduce the amount of cash . In the deal with Oculus , Facebook just spent $ 400 million in cash . If Oculus become a good gaming platform , Xbox , is not a good computing platform , with Facebook , things were okay . Keep in mind that the Xbox is a very good dish business .

And if Zuckerberg right about the future vision after mobile virtual reality , the Oculus acquisitions worth $ 2 billion in the past meant he had acquired a great product like the next iPhone for only 400 million in cash . However, the answer still lies in the future !
