Oculus announces $199 stand-alone VR headset, Oculus Go

Oculus Go: The $200 Standalone Headset VR Needs

SAN JOSE, Calif-On stage at the Oculus Connect 4 conference, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took the wraps off of Oculus Go, the company's first "sweet spot" standalone headset. One of the big features of Santa Cruz is its inside-out tracking, meaning that the headset won't require external sensors like the Oculus Rift now does.

Oculus Go is shipping with what Oculus terms "next generation" VR optics that will reduce glare and improve the field of view. The Go will offer an experience sitting between mobile VR and the high-end Oculus Rift, with a level of quality that's better than the Samsung Gear VR, while remaining totally wireless. Which means it does not require to be connected to a mobile phone or a PC to use.

Oculus executive Hugo Barra described the headset as way to enable VR for everyday use.


In terms of games and applications, it sounds like most of the stuff that already works on Gear VR also works on Oculus Go. Other features include a "fast-switch LCD" display with WQHD 2560X1440 resolution and an integrated spatial audio experience.

However, the Oculus Go headset seems a little different from that headset. However, Facebook is is looking to give us a third option with the $199 Oculus Go. For one, it doesn't seem to have inside-out tracking or motion controllers with full tracking.
