A tragic accident has stripped Oculus VR of one of its founding members, Andrew Scott Reisse, who died on Thursday after being struck by a car involved in a police chase. As ABC Los Angeles reports, Reisse was killed in a crosswalk by suspects who were fleeing the scene of a crime.
Reisse was one of the founding members of the Oculus VR team, and worked on the virtual reality headset’s integration with the Unreal engine — including the Oculus Citadel demonstration. He left his mark on several companies, include Scaleform, Gaikai, and eventually Oculus, where he served as a lead engineer.
