It's been nearly a year since Facebook bought Oculus, the maker of a virtual-reality headset, for $2 billion dollars.
Turns out that some of Facebook's plans for VR may involve content produced by its own users — as well as by celebrities.
Speaking onstage Tuesday night at the Code/Media conference at The Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel, Calif., Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox extolled the virtual-reality experience, and divulged that the social networking giant has its own VR ambitions.

"I mean, virtual reality is pretty cool. We're working on apps for VR," he said to Re/code senior editor Peter Kafka.
"Have you used some of the film demos inside of VR?" Cox continued. He cited an example in which the headset wearer envisions being inside a Blue Angel fighter jet, and another VR experience that sets the viewer inside a yurt in Mongolia.
