Facebook accidentally shipped VR devices w/secret messages like “big brother is watching” & “the masons were here”

Sharing is Caring!

Facebook’s virtual reality subsidiary Oculus has shipped tens of thousands of its touch controllers with sinister-sounding messages the company described as “easter eggs.” The messages included phrases like “Big Brother Is Watching You,” “The Masons Were Here,” “This Space for Rent,” and “Hi iFixit! We See You!” iFixit is a company that advocates for right to repair and provides training and materials to help with DIY electronics repair projects.

Oculus co-founder Nate Mitchell broke the news on Twitter. “Unfortunately, some ‘easter egg’ labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers,” Mitchell said on Twitter. “But those were limited to non-consumer units. While I appreciate easter eggs, these were inappropriate and should have been removed.”
