Virtual Reality is now available with Oculus GO
After long months of anticipation, Facebook released Oculus Go last week. This gadget by Mark Zuckerberg company is a VR Headset. The truly amazing feature is that it is a standalone device.
Unlike other headset by Oculus, it doesn’t require connection to PC or mobile phone.The initial setup is handled with your phone’s Bluetooth connection. Other than that, the screen, sensors, radios, and processing power are all inside the Go headset.
Other virtual reality options like the Samsung Gear VR or the Oculus Rift require high-powered computers or wires. However, at 200 dollars, you won’t need to use anything with Oculus Go. Design-wise, the headset is very lightweight, featuring a mesh foam interface, and WQHD LCD fast-switch display with a higher fill-factor than OLED.
Oculus Go is being produced by Xiaomi and features a Snapdragon 821 processor. You will need to install games from the Oculus store, a independent store managed by Oculus.
There, you can access to more than 1,000 VR experiences, from action games to emotional stories and puzzles. It comes with an included remote control. Reviews of technology experts and VR enthusiasts have been positive.
Oculus Go is already on sale, you can find it at Oculus.com and major online retailers like Amazon and Best Buy.
