Oculus Co-Founder and Rift Creator Palmer Luckey Departs Facebook

Hmmm, let's see Facebook paid $3 billion for his company and now, at 24 years old, he is free to do anything he wants, whenever he wants. That sounds terrible.

Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey, the man behind the Rift concept and its first prototypes, is leaving the company three years after selling to Facebook. According to Oculus, this will be Palmer’s last week with Friday marking his official last day as an employee of Facebook. When asked if Luckey’s departure was voluntary, Facebook representatives declined to comment, citing a policy of not discussing internal personnel matters.
