No, you're not hallucinating. John Carmack, creator of first-person shooters and dabbler in rocket science, has left id Software to join VR company Oculus Rift where he'll serve as chief technology officer. Carmack was a founder of the game studio that created Quake, Doom and Wolfenstein. He believes VR will have a "huge impact" in the coming years, and wants to be upfront.
