Fb-owned Oculus has confirmed that “tens of hundreds” of its Contact controllers have been shipped with hidden messages inscribed on inner elements. These messages have been solely presupposed to be easter eggs on inner prototypes however they ended up making their approach on non-prototype editions that have been shipped to prospects.
Fb’s head of VR product Nate Mitchell confirmed in a sequence of tweets that messages like “This House For Lease,” “The Masons Have been Right here,” and paradoxically, “Massive Brother Is Watching” have been inscribed internally on some controllers. Some even had the message “Hello iFixit, We See You!” written on the within. Mitchell confirmed that these have been meant for prototypes they usually “by chance” made it onto the inner 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 presupposed to. That is simply humorous and even perhaps dumb to some extent as you’d anticipate such a giant firm to have processes in place that forestall prototype easter eggs from being shipped out to the purchasers.
Not less than they’ve performed the suitable factor and made this public themselves earlier than builders or customers discovered them out and questioned why their Contact controller says “Massive Brother Is Watching.”
