“Someone at Microsoft Research is apparently unimpressed with Oculus Rift’s perspective on the world, so has corrected it with lenses that give you Microsoft’s view of things.Redmond’s vision is expressed in this little CAD file that’s popped up at Microsoft Research, offering you all you need to give your Occulus the Microsoft treatment.“The field of view is slightly smaller than the stock lens but it is sharper across the field and has far less chromatic aberration,” the Readme file for the lenses claims.The research project isn’t just a goodness-of-the-heart thing. It’s also a demonstrator for another project: “The lens was automatically designed by the LensFactory program developed at Microsoft Research”, the post notes. The Register guesses that the project was a kind of de-cloaking for LensFactory.”
