What is Project Virtua?

The Oculus Rift is just one device supported by Project
Project Virtua is a set of tools for creating virtual reality environments, created by Gerald McAlister and Gregory Learned. This library is an easy way for programmers to use both the Oculus Rift and Microsoft Kinect together for immersion unlike anything available before. Project Virtua and programmers using it are paving the way for the future of virtual reality.

Project Virtua is now released under the LGPL License, which means you can use it in commercial applications without having to pay royalties. Simply give notice when you use the library in your program.
