Oculus Reveals New Flagship Wireless VR Headset

Oculus Reveals New Flagship Wireless VR Headset

The standalone, immersive VR headset Oculus demoed a year ago, then dubbed Santa Cruz, is now known as Oculus Quest, and it arrives next spring for $399.

Second woman comes forward, accuses Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

It also uses "four ultra wide-angle sensors and computer vision algorithms to track your exact position in real time without any external sensor", so you won't even be locked to a single room while playing. As we previously reported, the device will ship with Touch Controllers like the ones found on the Oculus Rift, and it features all of the necessary sensors in the headset itself, completely ditching the need for cables (aside from charging, of course).

Oculus Quest will ship with two handheld controllers, and consumers will be able to access more than 50 VR titles at launch. Today, the company followed up that announcement with a second, more expensive headset meant to drive a higher class of experience. The device features positional inside-out tracking, as well as tracking for the hand controllers.

Originally known as Santa Cruz, the Oculus Quest supposedly represents Oculus' attempt to deliver the holy grail of VR - wireless usage, built-in tracking, solid performance, and no need for a PC. Zuckerberg painted Quest as a key part of Facebook's plan to get 1 billion people to use VR, a goal that he admitted was still far off. They are calling this Oculus Insight.

The emphasis on sharing, which was discussed throughout the keynote, isn't missing the Go, which is getting Mobile Casting and TV Casting capabilities in order to better share the view inside your HMD. However, we aren't exactly sure what hardware is powering the Oculus Quest to accomplish this. Nonetheless, we'd like to see an update to the Rift as well - the higher resolution would be extremely welcome.
