Multiple Oculus rift on one computer?

I am fan of VR. Now, I would like to set up multiple Oculus Rift on one computer to play games ( Co-op or separate games).
Is it possible? What are hardware/software requirements?
Best regard,

This was a good idea for many, I'm afraid to imagine the characteristics of such a computer.
(I think if you start at the same time 2 separate windows...)

Will need some heavy processing power just on the hardware side. Probably best running a virtual machine on the machine and of course 2 graphics cards.

Unlikely.  I have yet to see an OS that plays nice with attempting to send inputs from multiple devices *to multiple applications* simultaneously.

yes, due to very heavy load on cpu and gpu, I think it even need a server mainboard which support 2 cpu and 2 gpu...

I know linustechtips did 7 gamers 1 PC, using the same idea you could do 2 Rifts 1 PC.

But I would just build 2 machines myself.
