FaceBook swallows up virtual reality firm Oculus VR - creator of a virtual reality headset which, until now, has been mainly of interest to gamers - will it gain broader appeal? The CEO of King Digital, maker of the blockbusting app Candy Crush Saga, who has just floated the company for seven billion dollars.
