Facebook Announces New Virtual Reality Headset, the Oculus Go

Facebook Announces New Virtual Reality Headset, the Oculus Go

If anything, Oculus has been a drag on the company. So, no headphones or earphones needed with Oculus Go.

Oculus Go UK release date: When's it coming out? The second is Oculus Go, a mobile headset with built-in electronics instead of a phone slot.

Oculus Go features: What's new? Its price (199 dollars-Atlantic) has not yet been set for Europe.

How does that compare to the competition?

Can former US President Jimmy Carter bring peace to the Korean Peninsula?
The defense minister announced, meanwhile, that a group of Australian military forces will soon arrive in South Korea as part of its Indo-Pacific defense activities.

The mobile headset can be used without being connected to a computer or a mobile phone and will be cross-compatible with all of Samsung Gear VR's titles. The 2016 Oculus Rift sold for $599 and required a computer costing at least $500 for the full VR experience.

It won't be until Oculus did a limited-time offer to drop the Rift and Touch bundle to below $400 will the company move a lot of units, though. It also allows more developers to explore the possibility of creating VR experiences, as it's so cheap.

Oculus Go design: What does it look like?

The headset is also said to be lighter than the Oculus Rift, although there's no specifics on weight or dimensions available just yet. Also, the Rift requires a high-powered PC in order to power the headset, and cables and wires that mean it are not handy enough for the users.

Stocks to Keep Your Eyes on Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY)
KeyCorp reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of ON Semiconductor Corporation in a research report on Tuesday, September 12th. In related news, Director Camillo Martino acquired 10,000 shares of the firm's stock in a transaction on Monday, August 21st.

Facebook vice president of VR Hugo Barra called the device "hands-down the easiest way for developers to get involved with VR and said it "feels incredibly soft to wear".

So, what's so special about Oculus Go?

The company is positioning this as a VR experience for people on a budget and has an aim to reach as well as bring more than 1 billion people to the Virtual reality world. But how? Let's talk specifics. 360-degree videos, which are some of the most popular Gear VR content, wouldn't be improved at all. The other reason is that the new VR headset will work independently without requiring external connections. It is facing an intense competition from rivals such as Google Daydream by Google and the Vive system by HTC Corp. The new optics offer a wide field of view with reduced glare.

There's much that is yet to be revealed, so for all the latest Oculus Go release date, pricing and feature news, head back to Tech Advisor soon.
