HTC may be working on a new VR headset, the Vive Eclipse
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.
Zuckerbergsaid 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.
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.

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.
