Oculus Rift getting Minority Report-like interface for VR.

On top of announcing a new and more affordable standalone headset at Oculus’ annual developer conference, the Facebook owned company also teased a massive update to the Oculus Rift platform.

Dubbed Rift Core 2.0, the software update is a “complete overhaul” of the Rift experience. Designed from the ground up to be more intuitive and personal, Rift Core 2.0 adds two new systems: Dash and a redesigned Home.

Dash For Multitasking

Dash is what you’d expect, a new dashboard to access VR experiences. But how Dash brings existing menus and UI into a central hub is what makes this a bit more magical and the future we know from movies like Minority Report.

Natively built for Touch controllers, Dash for Oculus Rift runs as an overlay inside your current VR experience, so you’ll be able to quickly switch from one app to the next, open your library, connect with friends, and even use the rest of your PC without any extra steps.
