Oculus announces Oculus Go: Standalone VR Headset

12 October 2017, 12:07 | Edward Lowe

Oculus Go uses internal cameras, sensors and software to track movements that are translated into corresponding motion in virtual worlds rendered in headsets. From the filing, it is clear that the Vive Eclipse is not an accessory for the other Vive headsets.

Zuckerberg said that the accessibility of the Oculus Go will help to realise his new goal of having 1bn people using VR in the next few years. For the uninitiated, the Samsung Gear VR is a VR headset created to be powered by a handful of top-tier Samsung smartphones.

"The strategy for Facebook is to make the onboarding to VR as easy and low-priced as possible", said Gartner analyst Brian Blau.

Kyrie Irving touts Boston as 'real, live sports city'
Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different. "You get it all, especially in Boston", Irving also said. Now that Uncle Drew is out of Cleveland, he no longer has to hide his displeasure of playing for the organization.

Facebook didn't provide any details on how the Oculus Go will work, but said it will include built-in headphones for audio and have a LCD display. The bundle comes with a Rift VR headset, a pair of Oculus Touch controllers, three facial interfaces, dedicated customer support, and warranties.

During his keynote speech at Facebook's fourth Oculus Connect virtual reality (VR) developer conference in San Jose, Calif, he paraded a solitary headset which does not require plugging in a smartphone or a cord tethering it to a personal computer like the Oculus Rift headset.

Facebook and other major technology companies such as Google and Microsoft that are betting on VR have a long way to go. Oculus Go will start shipping to consumers probably next year.

The Evil Within 2 | Launch Trailer
Admittedly, the trailer is full of some really gnarly sights, including a little girl that seems to have been flayed. The Evil Within 2 picks up where the previous title left off. "Sebastian's mission is personal", Bethesda explains.

Augmented or mixed reality, where you are still aware of your surroundings and able to react to risks, is a more comfortable proposition. 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.

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. It is expected that a lot of the apps from the Gear VR will be available on the Oculus from day one. According to Hugo Barra, Vice President, VR, at Facebook, the device, "hands-down the easiest way for developers to get involved with VR". The latest prototype is sleeker and features fully tracked controllers to enable hand presence in standalone form factor. Meanwhile, Pixar's first VR experience, Coco, is coming to Gear VR and Rift November 15.
