Oculus VR’s still-in-development Oculus Rift virtual reality headset isn’t ready for consumers yet, but that hasn’t stopped the rapidly growing company from admitting that it’s developing an Android-friendly little brother for the new tech. Confirmation came from Oculus VR CEO Brandon Iribe during his keynote talk at the GamesBeat 2013 video game conference (via VentureBeat).

The Android Rift will be a smaller, lighter take on the headset that we’ve seen so far, and it’ll be built to run off the connected mobile device’s processor. Iribe added that the plan is for both headsets to launch simultaneously (or close to that), though there’s still no clarity on when the consumer Oculus is coming. Many expect a 2014 delivery, but that’s in no way confirmed. The mobile Rift is going to Android only because iOS presents certain problems, though it’s not clear what.
