Facebook unveils 'Oculus Go' standalone VR headset

Facebook unveils 'Oculus Go' standalone VR headset”

This means it should be able to run all existing Gear VR apps and games without modification, and since those are all created to run on an Android-powered Galaxy phone, it seems very likely that the Go runs some form of Android.

"It's an all-new, standalone headset that doesn't require you to snap in a phone or plug in a cable", Zuckerberg said.

For a job he does not need a computer or mobile device. The headset will be a cousin to the Gear VR, allowing people to play games via the bundled controller, indulge in some social VR with friends, and watch movies when it ships next year.

Facebook will permanently cut the price of the Rift system to $399 from $499, the company said.

Mark Zuckerberg aims to draw a large mass of first-time users to the VR platform with the Oculus Go.

The new headset will ship with integrated spatial audio and speakers are built right into the headset.

Facebook and other major technology companies such as Google and Microsoft that are betting on VR have a long way to go. Those figures include headsets for what is known as augmented reality. "Opening up more of those experiences to more of us - that's not isolating, that's freeing". So, have you been using the Oculus or any other VR headset? or you are waiting for the price cut, which makes it more affordable? probably, this will be the lowest price tag that the Oculus is being offered.

Facebook has shaken up Oculus management team since then in a series of moves that included the departure of founder Palmer Luckey earlier this year. The latest prototype is sleeker and features fully tracked controllers to enable hand presence in standalone form factor. This helps support Rift-like immersive content in an untethered environment, as reported by Meanwhile, Pixar's first VR experience, Coco, is coming to Gear VR and Rift November 15.

The conference also became a witness of the launch of Oculus for Business, which is a professional Rift bundle for businesses. Blade Runner 2049 series' second installment will be released, while Echo Arena will get more gameplay modes as Echo Combat was also announced. The closest a user could get to a quality VR headset until now in that price range was the Samsung Gear for $129 but for which you required a compatible Samsung smartphone.
