The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, released on March 28, 2016. You pull the device over your head, and suddenly you’re inside an ultra lifelike virtual world. You can run around, fly, race and create in a way that has never done before. What was once the stuff of Hollywood fantasy has now become a reality thanks to Oculus Rift.
In homes filled with multiple wireless devices, standard routers are woefully inadequate, unable to carry a strong signal between devices or into distant rooms. Mesh Wi-Fi is the answer: multiple small routers located in different spots around the house that function as repeaters, blanketing the living space with Internet. Mesh Wi-Fi is a bit more expensive than your current router — at least $200 to get started — but think of it as a way to get your money’s worth out of your Internet.
