Facebook announces standalone VR headset

That story has now been confirmed with the social media giant announcing a standalone VR headset that requires no phone or PC.

Zuckerberg, speaking at a conference for virtual reality developers, said the "Oculus Go" device would cost $199 and ship early next year, too late for this year's holiday shopping season but likely ahead of rivals.

Biogen Inc. (BIIB) Ownership Decreased by Gulf International Bank (uk) Ltd
Arrowgrass Capital Prtnrs (Us) Lp stated it has 0.12% of its portfolio in Biogen Inc (NASDAQ:BIIB). (NYSE:OIS) for 32,138 shares. The firm has a market capitalization of $69.77 billion, a P/E ratio of 21.65 and a beta of 0.77. (NYSE:OIS) for 520,358 shares.

However, adoption is slow in the consumer realm - despite Facebook's hopes to push up to one billion people into adopting virtual reality - and some elements of a successful transition into the mainstream are lacking. This new deal should be the best opportunity to capture the VR market, which should be able to capture a junk of VR market. It's massive because it offers so much simplicity, and without the need for a cable or a mobile phone. Meanwhile, Pixar's first VR experience, Coco, is coming to Gear VR and Rift November 15.

The Oculus Go will feature integrated spatial audio, though there's also a 3.5mm headphone jack should you need it. Oculus noted that developers building for GearVR are also doing it for the Oculus Go as the two share the same controller input and the apps are binary compatible. You can watch movies or concerts, play games, or hang out with your friends in virtual reality. With the new launches, Facebook is looking to control the overall VR experience with the help of onboard computation, which means no need for smartphones or PC. The auto company is using Oculus for Business to build VR showrooms to allow customers to walk around the place and configure the vehicle themselves before they make the purchasing decision.

Statement from the Desert Southwest chapter of Girl Scouts
We are the organization creating-through our skill-building Girl Scout Leadership Experience-the female leadership pipeline. Audrey Adamson was a girl scout and carried the legacy long after leaving her troop.

Oculus Go is intended for those that do not have a Samsung smartphone. However, the avatars were restricted to VR headsets that are based on the company's own VR software platform. Also, Unlike Rift, the Oculus Go won't have full space tracking features due to its untethered nature.

Google to 'permanently remove' Home Mini's faulty recording feature
Before Google killed this feature, it would allow you to long-press on the top of the device to activate Google Assistant. Google launched " Home Mini " on October 4 for $49 at an event in San Francisco .

Another highlight of the Oculus Connect 4 was the decision to permanently drop the price of the Oculus Rift bundle to $399 (the promotional price used during Summer of Rift), in an effort to get VR into more hands. For $900, or a rather reasonable and oddly specific £685.62, a business gets everything it needs for room-scale VR along with enterprise-grade warranties, a VR commercial license, and a dedicated customer support channel. The company was calling the prototype of this product "Santa Cruz" headset.
