Facebook has accidentally shipped thousands of virtual reality (VR) controllers with “easter egg” messages inscribed on internal components.

The messages on VR units have phrases like “This Space For Rent” and “The Masons Were Here,” and some of the developer units have “Hi iFixit! We See You!” and “Big Brother Is Watching” inscribed internally, admitted Nate Mitchell, Facebook head of VR product.

“Unfortunately, some ‘easter egg’ labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers,” Mitchell tweeted on Friday.

“While I appreciate easter eggs, these were inappropriate and should have been removed. The integrity and functionality of the hardware were not compromised, and we’ve fixed our process to prevent it’s happening again,” said Mitchell, the co-founder of Oculus, the Facebook-owned VR company.

The government's key concerns has been to empower the tribal community in the state.

The new efforts in the Himalayan area aimed at empowering members of the Gujjar-Bakerwal and Gaddi-Sippi groups appear to have alarmed Kashmiri lawmakers. These leaders are concerned that if these areas are given more influence, they would lose a significant portion of their voter base.
