The Oculus Rift is finally coming to consumers early next year, and included with it comes an Xbox One controller.  If that doesn't tickle your fancy, you may want to get your hands on their newly announced "Oculus Touch," a set of motion tracking controllers designed for 360-degrees of motion tracking equipped with a thumbstick, two buttons, a hand trigger, and an analog trigger.



The Oculus Touch can detect input from all of your fingers, and features shaking haptic technology to let you "feel" the objects you're touching.  If you thought you looked like a huge nerd using the Oculus Rift before, just wait until you see yourself using these things too.



Attendees of E3 next week will get to try these controllers out in person, while the rest of us will have to wait to get our mitts on them until Q1 of next year.

Harry Shearer, the voice of Ned Flanders, Mr Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner, and Lenny has left the Simpsons after decades with the show.  Reportedly related to issues with "back-end and merchandising," Shearer announced his departure from the show on Twitter:



It seems like his departure is not on terrible terms, but came down to a contract issue limiting Shearer's ability to lend his talents to other projects.  
Here's hoping the show can find a perfect new voice for Mr Burns; it certainly won't be the same without chearer.

Want to continue to be terrified by a horrifying animatronic bear. 

Via Hollywood Reporter:

“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith.

"The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to," said Cawthon.

The project is currently out to writers.

Adam Stone and Jay Ireland will exec produce. Jon Berg and Nik Mavinkurve are overseeing for Warners.
