New generation VR headset.

Facebook’s Oculus Go is a new generation of standalone VR headsets with no PC or cables attached. While most VR headsets need to be connected to a smartphone or computer, the Oculus Go has a built-in computer which is ready to go when the headset is on. To set up, users download the Oculus app from an iPhone, Android device or Facebook account.

Tiny speakers deliver immersive sound without the need for headphones and there is a 3.5mm audio jack for personal listening.  Oculus Go brings experiences to life in rich detail, with vibrant colours and a wide field of view. With crystal-clear optics and optimised 3D graphics, the hardware and software work together and claim to offer the highest visual clarity in a standalone VR. The device delivers up to 2.5 hours of video and up to two hours of gaming.

Breathable fabrics, injection foam molding and other advances in wearable materials allow Oculus Go to feel light and comfortable, even during extended periods of use. The soft and adjustable straps hold the headset securely in place. The device also supports over 1,000 VR games and entertainment apps such as Netflix.

Consumers in Australia can expect to pay around US$200 for the headset.
