It’s a rare treat that one gets to talk with someone so far ahead of the power curve that it physically hurts to think about.  While most kids are out wrecking their parents’ cars or figuring out way to get people to buy them beer, Palmer Luckey was busy at home refurbishing iPhones to resell on eBay! Palmer Luckey has set the gaming world on fire with his development of the Oculus Rift, a consumer-priced and developer-friendly virtual reality headset, which was recently shown on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  The Rift has also caught the attention of gaming legends as Doom creator John Carmack or Valve’s Gabe Newell, who are now working to developing games to be played on what could be the next big thing in gaming! We’re just glad we had an opportunity to talk with him before he was too big a name to talk with us!
