Palmer Luckey, the person most directly associated with the rise of Oculus as a major force in the growing world of virtual reality hardware, has left parent company Facebook, according to a statement provided to Ars Technica by a Facebook representative:
Palmer will be dearly missed. Palmer’s legacy extends far beyond Oculus. His inventive spirit helped kickstart the modern VR revolution and helped build an industry. We’re thankful for everything he did for Oculus and VR, and we wish him all the best.
