Palmer Luckey deja caer algo así cuando le entrevistan en el último número de Edge. Comenta que Carmack está trabajando en dispositivos móviles pero que ya no usan un móvil.
El párrafo compelto es éste:
What does John Carmack bring to the company?
He's one of the smartest programmers out there. He has a deep understanding of hardware and software. He's been building realtime 3D applications pretty much longer than anyone else. His contributions are huge. John works in Dallas in his own office and is primarily focused on mobile virtual reality, so while he's involved to some degree in a lot of things, he's mostly been focused on mobile VR. That's what he came to Oculus to work on, because he believes in the long run that's where a lot of stuff is headed. Not necessarily towards mobile-phone-based headsetds, but towards headsets that render everything themselves.
