Occulus Go Is A RM840 Standalone VR Headset

Best Black Friday VR deals

His company's Oculus headsets that send people into artificial worlds are too expensive and confining to appeal to the masses. The Oculus Go headset is supposed to be very light and will have a high-resolution LCD screen, along with lenses that are supposed to offer owners "a wide field of view with significantly reduced glare". Virtual reality has shaken the industry and is starting to bleed over into others with its accessibility and technological advancements. First is a permanent price cut to $400 for the Rift.

"This is a great opportunity-not only for businesses, but for the long-term viability of VR".

Remember that you'll need a decent-spec PC to run any VR - if you don't have one, keep an eye on gaming PC deals - any high-end rig will run VR well, though some specifically advertise themselves as "VR-ready" now to show they meet the required specs for Vive and Oculus.

Oculus Go will also come with integrated speakers but it will stil have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. And if you've never experienced VR, the Oculus Go looks like it'll be a good place to start.

Nonetheless, the Pacific virtual reality headset will be up for grabs for only $200. This means that the Go will have a sizable library of VR titles out of the gate, and existing Gear VR owners will get to use most (if not all) titles created for the Go. "Opening up more of those experiences to more of us - that's not isolating, that's freeing".

Yesterday's Oculus Connect 4 delivered a plethora of announcements from Facebook's VR division, though several of them were anticipated a couple months ago thanks to a rumor spread by Bloomberg.

Then theres a new VR headset – the Oculus Go – and finally, an update on the Santa Cruz prototype. This helps support Rift-like immersive content in an untethered environment, as reported by oculus.com.

Well, it doesn't. Collaboration tools are most often found online or on business networks, there are few examples - if any - of VR being used on mass scales for learning, and the only real "discovery" in play is discovering how cool some VR apps are.

According to Gartner, some 16m VR headsets were shipped worldwide in 2016, a number that is tipped to reach 22m in 2017.

The company is also promising to make improvements to avatars themselves. Blade Runner 2049 series' second installment will be released, while Echo Arena will get more gameplay modes as Echo Combat was also announced.

The company offered a sneak peek into Oculus Venues, a new experience coming next year that lets people watch live concerts, sports, and movie premieres with thousands of other people around the world. Oculus and Samsung Electronics Co already sell a device, named Gear VR, that when paired with certain Samsung phones is similar to Oculus Go.
