If you received a somewhat suspicious looking email from a company claiming to be Oculus to take part in a research study for $400—don’t be quick to toss it into your spam box. It’s actually Legit!
Today, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey confirmed on Reddit the legitimacy of the email from the company, after a number of people who claimed to have received the random email questioned if it was real or not.
According to the email posted on Reddit, Oculus Research, a division of the company focused on the long-term advancement and innovative development of virtual reality technology, is seeking applicants for a 6-hour research study that will take place in a person’s home.
The email states: “We hope you might be interested in participating in an upcoming Oculus research study!”
“We are looking for people 21 years or older to participate in a 6-hour research study on February 9, 10, 11th, or 15th. The study will take place in your home and will be conducted by 2 researchers from the Oculus Research team. To thank you for your time, you’ll receive a $400 Visa gift card if you are selected to participate.”
“If you are interested in participating, please complete this brief 3-minute survey as soon as possible!”
No details were revealed on what specific areas Oculus will be testing the participants in, however, it will be quite interesting to learn what possible scenarios or procedures are conducted by the Oculus team to collect that data. Either way, the results should hopefully provide Oculus with valuable insight into future VR developments.
