Oculus Won't Lock You Out Of Games With Future Headsets

Oculus Go hit its affordable price by including only a single basic handheld controller and skipping the sensors required to sense your movements in physical space.

Rift was the first VR gear released by Facebook-owned Oculus, but needs to be plugged into computers powerful enough to handle the graphics rich, immersive nature of digital worlds.

Like the Oculus Go, the Oculus Quest is a wireless, standalone VR headset. Today, the company followed up that announcement with a second, more expensive headset meant to drive a higher class of experience.

Oculus Quest will also feature two redesigned controllers that have been fitted with touchpad control. They're big. Cramming all of that into something that sits comfortably on your face is impressive on Oculus's part.

Sarri: I don’t know why West Ham lost four matches

Zuckerberg acknowledged that VR has not yet caught on with the majority of consumers, despite heavy investment from venture capitalists and tech companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Taiwan smartphone maker HTC.

Zuckerberg said that the new Quest device represents the completion of Facebook's family of VR headsets, which includes the Rift and Go headsets.

Facebook says users will be able to wander around in up to 4,000 square feet of spacewhile using the headset. The Oculus Quest will be available in Spring 2019 for $399 for the 64GB version with Touch controllers.

Still, with more powerful standalone VR devices and more compelling VR media, Zuckerberg said he is "confident we're going to get there".

The way the Cowboys' offense struggled to move the ball for most of the day, however, a full-on comeback was highly unlikely. Heath departed with a left ankle injury earlier in the drive and Wilson found Lockett streaking up the sideline.

The demo made it clear that Oculus is approaching mixed reality from the VR side, in contrast to MagicLeap, which is approaching mixed reality from the augmented reality side.

'Last year we talked about how our long term goal is to get a billion people into virtual reality, ' he said.

Oculus Quest builds on what the Go offers in several significant ways.
