Oculus Go Offers Glimpse at Future of VR
Someone's finally gone and done it. A tech company in the virtual reality space has finally hit the nail on the head when it comes to designing a VR headset for the masses.
During Facebook’s F8 event this week, the company announced the next iteration of the Oculus virtual reality platform, which Facebook purchased a little more than four years ago. Oculus Go, as it’s known, is a very mobile friendly version of the platform that lands right in the middle of the VR market.
To date, VR options for consumers could be classified in one of two ways: overly-technical or super low-tech. You’d either need a $2,000 gaming rig capable of supporting the software and hardware. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, you have the glorified smartphone mounts that hold your phone a few inches in front of your face.
