Oculus Go – The VR Headset That Costs $199, No Phones Needed

While Oculus has pioneered the modern consumer VR industry with the Oculus Rift and Samsung’s Gear VR, it’s been working hard on a truly wireless VR solution as well. Last year, Oculus teased that it was planning on a powerful standalone VR headset called “Project Santa Cruz,” and earlier this year, there was news that Oculus was working on yet another tether-free headset codenamed “Pacific.” Now, the company is finally ready to unveil its first standalone headset, that’s a little more accessible than the Santa Cruz. This is the Oculus Go.

 

 

As for its display, it’s a “fast-switch LCD” with WQHD 2560X1440 resolution. According to Barra, it has a higher pixel fill factor than OLEDs, with a “dramatic effect on visual clarity” that “reduces the screendoor effect.”
