Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, is still nowhere to be seen. That may be all over soon. This week marked the start of a trial over the $US2 billion ($2.6 billion) lawsuit brought by video game company Zenimax against Oculus VR owner Facebook. The suit alleges Oculus stole core intellectual property when it poached current Chief Technical Officer, John Carmack, and there's a possibility Luckey may be called to testify.

Welcome to Day 76 of Palmer Watch. This week, Palmer Luckey was still nowhere to be seen as Oculus VR, the company he founded, reached a significant milestone: The release of the Oculus Touch controllers.

Welcome to day 69 of Palmer Watch -- another day in which neither Palmer Luckey nor Facebook will tell me if the founder of Oculus VR even works at the social networking giant or not.

It's day 323 of the dark, dark year that is 2016. It's also day 55 of Palmer Watch! Has anyone heard from him yet? Does the founder of Oculus VR, which Facebook bought for $US2 billion ($2.6 billion), even work there any more?

We're now at day 48 of Palmer Watch and Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States of America. These are two things I did not think would be the case a week ago.

It's been 27 days since Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR and former Facebook golden child, has been seen or heard from publicly. On September 23, Luckey issued this statement on his funding of and involvement in Nimble America, a pro-Trump, anti-Hillary Clinton political advocacy group with the stated mission of proving "shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real." Palmer said he donated $US10,000 ($12,956) to the group because he "thought the organisation had fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters" but said his actions do not represent Oculus, the company Facebook bought for $US2 ($3) billion in 2014. He also said he planned to vote for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.
