Some backers of the original Oculus Rift development kit are getting a nice surprise. The company has announced that backers who pledged for an original developer's kit for the Rift hardware will receive a free special Kickstarter edition of the final Rift.
In order to claim their free Oculus Rift, qualifying backers will need to complete a Kickstarter survey and provide a shipping address from one of the 20 countries that the Rift is launching in. Oculus says they are working on an alternative "thank you" for backers outside of those countries. Oculus preorders go live tomorrow morning, so if you aren't one of the approximately 7,000 people getting this good news, you'll have your chance to secure your own Rift very soon.
