About two years ago we all started hearing about this thing the Oculus Rift. It was really the greatest looking virtual reality experience since sliced bread, or at least there was the promise that it was going to be. The VR headset invented primarily by Palmer Lucky had a Kickstarter that went bonkers because the thing looked so great. Over the last couple years gamers had been looking and anticipating and salivating and creaming their pants over the Rift until today, when it was announced that Facebook was buying Oculus VR for $2 billion. It’s a lot of money for sure, and even somewhat understandable, but god what a let down.

These additional apps come along side the only other two third party apps to already be supported on Google Glass, The New York Times and Path. Google has also officially dubbed any software made for Google Glass, Glassware… get it?
