It was a record breaker, ending with 947% of its original funding goal, and went on to kick-start the new wave of virtual reality.</p><p>Since then we've seen Sony, Samsung, LG, HTC, Valve and many others enter the arena, with plenty others sure to follow.</p><p>This week, the final consumer Oculus Rift starts shipping out to buyers, with the HTC Vive to follow just days later. It's a big reason to celebrate, so that's exactly what we're going to do.</p><p>Over the course of the next week we'll be ushering in the new age of VR with a series of features, reviews, and roundups of some of the best VR devices and games out there. We'll be telling you how to build the best PC for your VR system, discovering how the porn industry is changing with virtual reality, and even meeting the people who get high while using VR. </p><p>Yes, it's going to be quite a varied week.</p><p>We'll be using this page as a one stop shop for all our VR Week content, so keep coming back over the week for more. Enjoy.</p><h3>Wednesday </h3><ul><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/oculus-rift-then-and-now-its-journey-from-kickstarter-to-vr-firestarter-1317876">Oculus Rift then and now: its journey from Kickstarter to VR firestarter </a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/social-networking-in-vr-makes-facebook-and-twitter-look-pants-1316966">Social networking in VR makes Facebook and Twitter look pants</a></li></ul><h3>Tuesday</h3><ul><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/mobile-computing/laptops/the-5-best-vr-laptops-these-notebooks-are-ready-for-the-rift-1317951">The 5 best VR laptops: these notebooks are ready for the Rift</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/the-wonderful-loneliness-of-virtual-reality-1317856">The wonderful loneliness of virtual reality</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/world-of-tech/these-are-the-5-laws-of-virtual-reality-according-to-the-director-of-the-lawnmower-man-1317795">These are the 5 laws of virtual reality</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/the-director-of-lawnmower-man-on-the-past-present-and-fantastic-future-of-vr-1317793">The director of Lawnmower Man on the past, present and fantastic future of VR</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/netflix-and-sky-see-vr-as-the-new-frontier-for-television-1317900">Netflix and Sky see VR as the new frontier for television</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/internet/web/best-vr-web-browser-how-to-browse-the-internet-in-virtual-reality-1317762">Best VR web browser: how to browse the internet in virtual reality</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/15-best-vr-games-best-virtual-reality-games-for-pc-and-mobile-1300576">13 best VR games: best virtual reality games for PC and mobile</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/the-best-games-for-playstation-vr-1306364">The 10 best PlayStation VR games we've seen so far</a></li></ul><h3>Monday</h3><ul><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/oculus-rift-htc-vive-playstation-vr-our-verdicts-so-far-on-all-the-vr-systems-1317813">Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR: our verdicts so far on all the VR systems</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/rocket-league-devs-had-a-cool-idea-for-vr-but-you-won-t-get-to-see-it-1317854">Rocket League Devs had a cool idea for VR, but you won't get to see it</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/playstation-vr-doesn-t-need-the-power-of-oculus-or-vive-to-be-a-mainstream-success-1317752">Why PlayStation VR doesn't need the power of Oculus or Vive to be a mainstream success</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/world-of-tech/20-years-ago-vr-was-hollywood-gold-can-you-guess-the-film--1317657">Quiz: Can you guess which terrible VR movie is which?</a></li><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/wearables/youtube-360-7-awesome-vr-videos-you-need-to-see-1317875">YouTube 360: 7 awesome VR videos you need to see</a></li></ul><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/247396043784/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/669/f/9809/s/4e8d7043/sc/23/mf.gif' border='0'/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/techradar/allnews/~4/pUSTxeBnxAg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
