Looking for Oculus Rift owners to test new apps and experiences

I'd like to invite Oculus Rift owners to get involved in design research for Oculus apps. I work for a UX company specialising in immersive tech (www.threesixtyreality.co.uk) and we often need to work on the designs for Oculus apps and content. We're based in London UK, and it's often a struggle to find genuine Oculus users to test the apps with. We typically invite participants in for sessions at our lab and they get paid a very reasonable rate for their time. So if you are a fan of VR, you get to try new experiences before they are released and get paid for your feedback, and we try to make it fun and interesting in the process. 

We have some research of this nature coming up soon, so if anyone is interested, own a Rift and could attend sessions in London, UK please get in touch be either:
a) emailing me on [email protected] (please use 'Design Research' in the subject line, so I can get back to you quickly)
b) using our design research participant sign up form

    @Techy111 White City, west London usually, but locations may vary depending on the project. Usually 1 hour sessions. What did you do in South London to get banned? LOL.

    @LZoltowski Thank you. That would be great. Please do sign up. We have early prototype of a new experience we plan to test with Oculus users w/c 17th Dec, so we'll reach out for that to those who are in/ near London and have signed up.

    Signed up.  I'm only an hour or so away on the train - used to commute down for work each day.  Looks interesting.

    Heh,I think we should all get paid to use new Oculus PTC updates, lol!.  Maybe just a small ~$5-10 store credit.  Good to see companies like this offering to inform locals though.  Please let us know how this all goes UK guys, thanks.

    Hey I would love to test out some new stuff, may I suggest that the new experience you give me is a working rift had it a week now and get one support message per day with something to try, and yes I have tried looking through all the forums and tried all the fixes. Am now considering selling this and getting an HTC Vive maybe that will work

    Seems that this is kinda obsolete now imho.  Maybe time to close this thread?
