VentureBeat has reported that Oculus VR raised $75M from web browser inventor Marc Andreessen’s VC firm to launch virtual reality goggles.

The huge sum of money will go toward staffing up to build a commercial version of the Oculus VR virtual reality goggles.

Brendan Iribe, Chief Executive of Oculus VR said that the company was working on a mobile version of the goggles, which is what attracted John Carmack, the game guru at id Software, to join Oculus VR weeks ago.

Iribe stated,

“This additional infusion of capital, as well as the leadership and experience of Marc Andreessen, will help us take the final steps toward our ultimate goal: making virtual reality something consumers everywhere can enjoy.”

“We believe Oculus will not only alter the gaming landscape, but will redefine fundamental human experiences in areas like film, education, architecture and design. We’re incredibly excited to help them change the world.”
