Grim news for the Oculus Rift camps. Reports are claiming that one of their top executives is into some real strange things. According to our informant “Dov Katz, Oculus’ head of computer vision, was arrested for “commercial sexual abuse of a minor.” He was booked four days before Christmas on December 21st.
This guy is being accused of exchanging sexual text messages with a minor. The police posed as a minor and he took the bait. Some of the conversation was posted online, and it goes a little something like this
“Katz: how old are you anyway?
Officer Sudel: 19, u?
Officer Sudel: K, younger girls ok with u?
Katz: Yes. More energy to keep up.
Officer Sudel: Can I be honest with u? I’m new to all this and a little younger than my ad says but I promise u won’t be disappointed.
Katz: How much younger?
Officer Sudel: 15 … I’m sending my pic.
Officer Sudel: Just please don’t say anything ok?
Once Katz was arrested, he told the police that he was there to “rescue her and call the police.” It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out. Moral of the story. Purchase an HTC Vive or PSVR!
