    Oculus Rift Co-Founder Killed As Bystander In Police Chase

    Well, this sucks...

    It’s one of those freak occurrences that spawns unfathomable tragedy. Andrew Scott Reisse was a VR computer graphics engineer working on the Oculus Rift, a project which he helped to co-found. He was struck and killed in a crosswalk four miles away from his office at the end of a police chase in Santa Ana on Thursday. Three suspects tried to flee on foot from their Dodge Charger after Reisse was hit, but all were captured by police. The Rift is one of the most promising new pieces of technology in the current video game landscape, a mounted headset that allows the user a full view of his surroundings. Reisse worked on the virtual reality systems, and his co-workers say he will be sorely missed.
    “Andrew was a brilliant computer graphics engineer, an avid photographer and hiker who loved nature, a true loyal friend, and a founding member of our close-knit Oculus family. Andrew’s contributions span far and wide in the video game industry. His code is embedded in thousands of games played by millions of people around the world. Words can not express how sorely he will be missed or how deeply our sympathy runs for his family.”
    The 21 year-old driver of the car faces murder charges. Thoughts go out to Reisse’s friends, family and co-workers.

    That's a real shame.
    I can read your thoughts.

    He'll be out again in 3 years killing more ppl, oh wait it kalifornia, so he'll be out in 1 year. So in the mean time he in prison watching flat screen TV and surfing facebook waiting for the criminal defender to come and free him. In their defense? It was the officer fault that gotten innocent ppl kill, and this poor criminal would have surrendered peacefully if the officer didn't act in aggression. Therefore this troubled, misunderstood teenager was also a victim himself...
