Fb-owned Oculus has confirmed that “tens of hundreds” of its Contact controllers had been shipped with hidden messages inscribed on inside parts. These messages had been solely alleged to be easter eggs on inside prototypes however they ended up making their means 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 House For Lease,” “The Masons Have been Right here,” and mockingly, “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 and so they “by accident” made it onto the inner hardware for a lot of Contact controller.
These messages are clearly not going to do anybody any hurt and the product will proceed to perform because it’s alleged to. That is simply humorous and even perhaps dumb to some extent as you’d anticipate such an enormous firm to have processes in place that stop prototype easter eggs from being shipped out to the purchasers.
A minimum of they’ve completed the fitting factor and made this public themselves earlier than builders or shoppers discovered them out and questioned why their Contact controller says “Massive Brother Is Watching.”
