The first stand-alone product from Oculus VR is the Oculus Go — the easiest way to jump into virtual reality.
The quality is improved over the GearVR but it’s not quite as good as its bigger brother – the Oculus Rift.
The high-resolution fast-switch LCD screen dramatically improves visual clarity and reduces screen door effect. And the next-generation lenses are the best ever—offering a wide field of view with significantly reduced glare.
Both the headset and controller have 3DOF (three degrees of freedom), so it doesn’t do room-scale.
Oculus Go also ships with integrated 3D spatial audio. The speakers are built directly into the headset, transporting you straight into virtual reality and making the headset easy to share with someone else.
If you need it, there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening.
It has a higher resolution screen than the Rift at 2,560 x 1,440px, and also has the latest lenses which reduce the screen door effect and glare.
The Oculus Go VR headset ships in the first quarter of 2018, starting at $199. For more information visit http://www.oculus.com/go
