Still making the (very) odd appearance in the public eye, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey recently announced that he's still very much a part of the VR space. There's even a number of games/projects in development that he can't yet talk about.
Founding the now Facebook-owned VR firm Oculus and launching the Oculus Rift VR headset after a number of years, Palmer Luckey's luck didn't take him much further than that. Though a number of scandals, including his company losing 500 million bucks to Zenimax, he quietly slipped out of the company he created just a few years before.
Since silently exiting the group earlier this year, Palmer Luckey has occasionally been spotted sporting some rather bewildering cosplay. Appearing on stage during HTC Vive's TGS show last week in nothing more than a bikini, the inventor was there to talk about the ever-growing Japanese VR scene - and yes, that may have included talk of hentai elsewhere. He likes the idea of a robot arm. Use your imagination.
Besides that, the visionary tried to downplay his string of past mistakes by saying "Don’t think of me as an Oculus person. Just think of me as a VR person". Happy with how HTC are sticking around to help the VR space grow, Luckey announced announced that he's founded a new company, but he wasn't willing to go much further saying "I can’t talk about my projects too much yet, but I’m still working in the virtual reality industry on some very exciting things."
Between the sale of Oculus to Facebook, Zenimax successfully convicting them of idea theft and Palmer's political donations getting him into trouble, a lot of people aren't too interested in what he has to offer. VR needs all the help it can get as a growing market, however, so his Facebook money still kicking around shouldn't be a bad thing.
