Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to mess around with virtual Reality. Palmer was born and raised in California where he grew up with the same want that I had. Palmer is 24 years old and is the creator of the Oculus Rift VR headset. He developed the first prototype in 2011 in his parents’ garage. This prototype was the CR-1 and it featured a 90-degree field of view. He continued to improve the module until he reached the 6th-generation, which was named ‘Rift.’ He sold his first 100 headsets as self assemble products. A man named John Carmack was one of those 100 customers. He improved the module and showcased it at the 2012 E3. Palmer dropped out of college to work on the Oculus Rift which had become virtually famous in one day. Palmer’s net worth in 2015 was $700 million! Facebook bought Oculus for $2 billion in 2014. Palmer followed his passion for VR and became a billionaire doing it! Talk about a successful entrepreneur!
