Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe on the future of virtual reality

This is the year virtual reality could really get real. VR was the main attraction this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Orders have started pouring in for the long-awaited Oculus Rift, with the first headsets set to be sent out in March. And virtual-reality technology is expected to generate more than $5 billion in revenue this year — and that's just for gaming.

Marketplace's Senior Tech Correspondent Molly Wood sat down with Brendan Iribe, CEO of Oculus, to talk about all things Rift, from the $599 headsets and the high-powered PC needed to go with them-- to the future of virtual reality, and its potential uses in healthcare, architecture, art, business, and communication.
