Title: Facebook announces Oculus Go
Post by: Fujitsu on October 12, 2017, 06:52:52 am
It's been pretty quiet from the Oculus bunch, but this week they showed everyone what they've been working on, the new Oculus Go. According to Mark Zuckerberg, the new Oculus Go will be the most accessible VR headset yet and will start out at $199. We don't know much about the headset but it looks pretty similar to some others but in the VR world the software and support seems to be a bigger issue that coming up with drastically different hardware. TechCrunch takes a closer look. (https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/11/oculus-announces-199-oculus-go-standalone-headset/)

   Onstage at Oculus Connect 4 in San Jose, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new mobile headset called “Oculus Go.”   According to Zuck, “it’s the most accessible VR headset yet;” it starts at $199 and it’s going to ship early next year. It appears that the mobile headset will be a similar experience to the Gear VR, allowing users to spin around but not move freely.   Facebook VP of VR Hugo Barra called the device, “hands-down the easiest way for developers to get involved with VR.” He said it’s lightweight and “feels incredibly soft to wear.” It will sport lenses that have the same wide field-of-view as Rift and will have a small controller similar to the one that ships with the Gear VR.
