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.
Oculus Go is going to be made by Xiaomi, and it will be run by a Snapdragon 821 processor. The final product will be comparable to the Oculus Rift and the GearVR. But with far more in common than the GearVR.
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. And yes, you will be able to ‘watch porn on the Go’ – so the trusty headphone jack will come in handy 😉
It has a higher resolution screen than the Oculus Rift at 2,560 x 1,440px, and also has the latest lenses which reduce the screen door effect and glare.
Although we don’t know an exact date, the Oculus Go VR headset will be shipping in the first quarter of 2018, starting at $199. For more information visit http://www.oculus.com/go
