What is Oculus VR?
Oculus VR is an American tech. company founded back in 2012. It only deals with designing and producing virtual reality software and hardware items. The very first VR model for gaming developers from this company was Oculus Rift. It has been proceeded by Oculus VR Development Kit 1 (DK1) and Oculus VR Development Kit 2 (DK2) launched in the same year, i.e., 2012.
However, the consumer’s version was launched in March 2016 with a different design. It was packed with features such as infrared tracking, specialized VR displays, and positional audio. In 2014, Facebook acquired Oculus VR.
What’s Special in Oculus Go VR?
The coming Oculus Go VR headset will provide nice access to its users at a good price. A big change with this device is that it runs without a smartphone. Yes, you do not need to remove unnecessary components every time to fit your mobile phone in a VR headset. Not just this you can now save your phones battery power and even can improve the thermals inside the VR hardware. Everything is built into it!
Critics words in Brief
Visual: The new device will provide a larger field and sharper view than its predecessor. Also, the device can now support more than full HD content, i.e., 1280 x 1440 pixels.
Controller: The controller of the new device feels much more comfortable in hand. Nice design that helps the user to easily access the buttons and trackpad on it. The trigger depresses along a hinge provide the great experience while using.
Sound: Oculus Go will provide you a good sound with convenience. Thanks to its built-in speaker design in the head strap itself. You can get stereo sound without the need of connecting any extra earphones/headphones which is pretty annoying in its older version.
Comfort: As per the critics and tech reviewer’s short-term experience with Oculus Go – It is quite comfortable. The headset is bit heavy but attached with double-strap that helps to fit in head nicely and balances its weight evenly. Reviewers are also pretty impressive with its built quality but still overheat issues appear from time to time, while that can be fixed an in-depth solution is provided at the techfuturae article.
So we can say to rule the market of VR headsets Oculus VR still needs to work more on their devices. Oculus Go might be available in the market at the cost of around $200. But still, it’s not having the features like 6DOF head tracking enough to compete with other VR brands! All in all Oculus Go VR will do well to win the heart of VR fans even if it’s not the ultimate option for them!
