Chris Dixon from Andreessen Horowitz on why the Facebook acquisition of Oculus Rift makes perfect sense…

“The way to understand this purchase is to think of Google buying Android in 2005.

That confused a lot of people at the time.

Facebook believes that virtual reality will become the next major platform, the same way mobile computing did, and they want to make sure they have a big stake in that.”
