General Questions (new developer)

I just got asked to order Oculus for a Unity project.
It will be for Computer and cellphone (mainly pc) with the occulus hand controller (not gamepad).
I dont know much about Oculus other then what I read on the page and on wikipedia in the last 10 min.

My questions are:
What do I need in order to start developing and showcasing.
  • Do I need Both a developer kit and a "normalkit" for pc?
  • Do I need to buy a Developer kit for mobile as well, part from the Developer kit for Oculus?
  • The handcontroller is compatible for both ?

If you have any other useful information you feel Ive missed, feel free to add that.

Thank you!

    Welcome to the Oculus Forums.

    I'll address these in the order that you have asked:

    1) It is not necessary to have separate hardware for development purposes.

    2) While the same holds true for Gear, you will need at least a consumer Gear unit aside from your Rift for development on each platform.

    3) GearVR has it's own controller, as the Touch controllers offer default functionality to Rift only.
