Facebook ships virtual reality controllers with hidden messages

April 15, 2019 / Facebook

Facebook has accidentally shipped thousands of virtual reality (VR) controllers with "easter egg" messages inscribed on internal components. The messages on VR units have phrases like "This Space For Rent" and "The Masons Were Here," and some of the developer units have "Hi iFixit! We See You!" and "Big Brother Is Watching" inscribed internally, admitted Nate Mitchell, Facebook head of VR product. "Unfortunately, some 'easter egg' labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers," Mitchell tweeted on Friday.
