TechCrunch: Oculus Research is now the ‘Facebook Reality Lab’. “Oculus Research is getting a new name. As the AR/VR-focused research group grows more instrumental to the future of Facebook at large, the group will now be called Facebook Reality Labs. The announcement was made by Oculus Chief Scientist Michael Abrash in a post on his personal Facebook page. It’s just a name change, but the announcement marks a further entrenching inside the Facebook org of AR/VR initiatives once confined to Oculus.” Yeah, I don’t think I’d call that just a name change.
