Oculus Rift SDK gets first-ever support for OS X

Enables development of Oculus-compatible Mac apps

Facebook-owned Oculus VR has released v0.41 of its beta SDK. Mostly a maintenance release, it is however the first to support OS X, which should allow developers to add Oculus Rift support to games and other Mac software. Since Macs are lacking an appropriate display driver, support currently relies on the Extend Desktop mode.

The Oculus Rift itself is still available only as a second-edition development kit. It's unclear when a finished headset might go on sale, or even if it will resemble the current hardware, since Facebook's takeover of Oculus could influence design.
