Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Nate Mitchell is the Final Oculus Co-founder to Leave Facebook

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Nate Mitchell, Facebook’s Head of VR Product, and the last of Oculus’ co-founders has announced that he’s leaving the company.

Mitchell was among five core people at the inception of Oculus in 2012, which also included Palmer Luckey, Brendan Iribe, Jack McCauley and Michael Antonov, all of which have now departed the company following the 2014 Facebook acquisition.

Mitchell announced his departure on the Oculus Subreddit on Tuesday.

According to Mitchell, he started at Oculus as the company’s VP of Product, became Head of Rift in 2016, and then Head of VR Product at Facebook in 2018.

His departure follows Jack McCauley who left in 2015; Palmer Luckey who left in 2017, reportedly pushed out for his political views; Brendan Iribe who left in 2018, reportedly due to disagreement over the future direction of the Oculus Rift; and Michael Antonov who left this May.

Mitchell’s departure marks an end of an era, and effectively a total transition of the original Oculus leadership to those chosen by Facebook.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
