Fb-owned Oculus has confirmed that “tens of 1000’s” of its Contact controllers had been shipped with hidden messages inscribed on inside elements. These messages had been solely speculated to be easter eggs on inside prototypes however they ended up making their manner on non-prototype editions that had been shipped to prospects.
Fb’s head of VR product Nate Mitchell confirmed in a collection of tweets that messages like “This Area For Hire,” “The Masons Had been Right here,” and sarcastically, “Massive Brother Is Watching” had been inscribed internally on some controllers. Some even had the message “Hello iFixit, We See You!” written on the within. Mitchell confirmed that these had been meant for prototypes they usually “by chance” made it onto the interior hardware for a lot of Contact controller.
These messages are clearly not going to do anybody any hurt and the product will proceed to operate because it’s speculated to. That is simply humorous and even perhaps dumb to some extent as you’d count on such a giant firm to have processes in place that stop prototype easter eggs from being shipped out to the purchasers.
Not less than they’ve achieved the correct factor and made this public themselves earlier than builders or customers discovered them out and puzzled why their Contact controller says “Massive Brother Is Watching.”
