Many gamers were excited by the idea of a virtual video game world powered by Oculus Rift, but when Facebook recently acquired Oculus Rift, it paved way for a whole new set of possibilities in virtual reality. With Frift, we wanted to try our hands at making that blend of virtual reality and social networking. We wanted to create a unique experience to those who wanted to connect with their loved ones in a virtual world through which they would leave footprints in the giant web of social networking.

We really wanted to deliver on the key features of our product, which consists of the following:

 -Seamless integration with Facebook:  Through our pipeline, joining your friends in a virtual room from Facebook is an intuitive and simple process.

 -Facebook Authentication:  Your identity in the virtual world is supplied by your Facebook credentials.  This also means that hanging out with your friends on Facebook is as easy as pie.

 -Eventing System:  What happens in your virtual room doesn't just stay in the virtual room (uinless you want it to!).  If you poke your friend virtually, it can be reflected in your Facebook feed.  You can even take a screenshot of the virtual world and share it with your Facebook friends!

 -Voice Chat:  Powered by Teamspeak 3, chat freely with your buddies in the virtual room.

 -Oculus Rift:  Frift takes full advantage of the Oculus Rift to provide an awesome virtual reality experience.

We had a lot of fun working on this cool product. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we did making it!
