    Once upon a time, there was a mother who had three little gamer's. The three little gamer's grew so big that their mother said to them, "You are too big to live here any longer your rigs take up too much space. You must go and build new ways for you to play games. But take care that the rift does not catch you." The three little gamer's set off with the idea that Virtual Reality would be the future of gaming. "We will take care that the rift does not catch us," they said.

    Soon they met a googleman who was carrying some cardboard. "Please will you give me some cardboard?" asked the first little gamer. "I want to build a VR headset for myself." "Sure," said the googleman, and he gave the first little gamer some cardboard. The first little gamer built himself a VR headset out of it. He was very pleased with his headset. He said, "Now the rift won't catch me!"

    The second and the third little gamer went on along the road. Soon they met a generic man who was carrying some plastic foam. "Please will you give me some plastic foam?" asked the second little gamer. "I want to build a VR headset for myself." "Sure," said the generic man, and he gave the second little gamer some plastic foam. Then the second little gamer built himself a VR headset of plastic foam. It was stronger than the headset of cardboard. The second little gamer was very pleased with his VR headset. He said, "Now the rift won't catch me!"

    The third little gamer walked along the road by himself. Soon he met a mysterious man carrying a green triple headed snake with an idea to make a VR headset cheap, open and hack-able. "Please will you allow me to use this idea?" asked the third little gamer. "I want to build a VR headset for myself but in exchange ill share my plans with everyone else." "Sure," said the mysterious man, and he gave the third little gamer the plans and SDK for something called OSVR (Open Source Virtual Reality). Then the third little gamer built himself a VR Headset from the OSVR. It took him a long time to build it even with the help of the community, but it was a very strong VR headset. The third little gamer was very pleased with his VR headset. He said, "Now the rift won't catch me!"

    The next day, the rift came along the road. He came to gamer who's VR headset was made of cardboard that the first little gamer had built. When the first little gamer saw the rift coming, he hid his face with the headset he had built and proceeded to play a game.

    "Little gamer, little gamer. Let me have a go!"

    "No, no!" said the little gamer, "Now please go go go"

    "Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your VR headset apart!" said the rift.

    So he huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed. The VR headset of cardboard fell apart, and the rift scraped up the first little gamer's idea.

    The next day, the rift walked further along the road. He came to the VR headset of plastic foam that the second little gamer had built. When the second little gamer saw the rift coming, he hid his face with the headset he had built and proceeded to play a game.

    "Little gamer, little gamer. Let me have a go!"

    "No, no!" said the second little gamer, "Now please go go go"

    "Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your VR headset apart!" said the rift.

    So he huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed. The VR headset of plastic foam fell apart, and the rift scraped up the second little gamer's idea.

    The next day, the rift walked further along the road. He came to the VR headset of OSVR that the third little gamer had helped to build. When the third little gamer saw the rift coming, he hid his face with the headset he had helped built and proceeded to play a game.

    "Little gamer, little gamer. Let me have a go!"

    "No, no!" said the third little gamer, "Now please go go go"

    "Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your VR headset in!" said the rift.

    So he huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed. But the VR headset made from OSVR did not fall apart, it instead adapted and evolved to counter the attempts of the rift.

    The rift was very angry, indeed!. He said, "Little gamer, I am going to eat you up. I am going to take your OSVR and destroy it." The little gamer was very frightened, but he said nothing. He put out a thread on the OSVR forum and told his friends about the rift's warning. The rift snatched the OSVR from the gamer and ran away laughing when the mysterious man with the triple headed green snake appeared and scared the rift by explaining that the OSVR was open and everyone has the opportunity to build, develop the future of Virtual Reality and reminded the rift that he was in fact a gamer at heart that just lost his way a little. The rift was taken back by the mysterious man approach and ran away. The rift was unable to effect the little gamer's again as he was now outnumbered, and we hear very little from him anymore.
