I didn't get the original post for some reason, but I'm glad this was
reposted, as I am also very interested in how these technologies with work
together. It is expected that there is going to be a huge push for Occulus
on Facebook during the next 5 years, and we all know what that means. I can
say (for good reasons) that X3D could have been the chosen format (and I
think it came close), but it would appear that a last minute decision was
made in favor of Occulus hardware.  Nevertheless, any relevant links or
information on how that will work with X3D would be welcome.. Thank you,

I've been looking at that myself - oculus rift, htc- and it seems a bit
fiddly to configure the code -you render to fbo buffers instead of screen
backbuffer, then hand those buffers to the hmd api for a second stage of
rendering. And the hmd acts as a 6dof input device. Popup menus should
freeze in 3d space and - unlike a mouse -  the center of the viewport is
cursor/pickray.  But nothing theoretically impossible and all the x3d
content would stay the same.
