Life can be stressful at the best of times, especially for leaders of growing businesses. So, if you find that massages and sports just don’t do the trick at helping you let off some steam, purchasing an Oculus Rift may do the job.The £550 headset allows wearers to shut the world around them out, acting as digital blinkers that can provide an immersive world of entertainment spanning videos, films and games. Retail partners in the UK include Amazon, John Lewis, Curry’s PC World, Game and Harrods. The 20 September arrival date will also see Rifts launched across Europe and Canada too. Oculus was snapped up by Facebook for $2bn in 2014 and it seems as though the partnership is beginning to take shape with a mass rollout imminent.
