Oculus Go now available, standalone mobile VR for £199

Oculus Go Shows Up on Geekbench

Unlike other VR headsets, Facebook says the Oculus Go is a "true standalone" wearable, in that it doesn't require any help from a PC or smartphone.

What is Oculus Go? It comes in two configurations, one with 32GB of storage space, and one with 64GB of storage space.

Evidence is piling up that Facebook-owned Oculus is gearing up to launch its low-priced, standalone virtual reality headset Oculus Go, possibly as soon as later today. With a 538ppi 2560 x 1440 WQHD, fast-switch LCD display, we're able to offer the best optics of any VR system we've built at our most affordable price point yet. That's shared between both eyes. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor under the hood, spatial audio, and there is an integrated microphone as well.

I'm afraid", said Linda Sonigo, 40, walking solemnly towards the US gate with her two-year-old granddaughter in her arms. But migrants have been seen gathering on both sides of the border fence, with some waving signs from atop the fence.

Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching. It works on its own, with an included controller device, and uses inside-out tracking instead of the typical outside-in tracking we've seen on high-end VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The Oculus Go is a $200 value if Facebook hands out the 32GB model. This is a testament to Facebook's willingness to make tight or nonexistent profit margins in order to ensure it remains the leader of the VR market - it also speaks to the fact that Oculus understands mobile VR software better than any competitor, by a country mile.

"For the first time, Oculus brings you a truly standalone VR headset-with no additional hardware, computers, or devices required". Although few VR apps now support 6DoF, it's likely to gain traction as more virtual reality hardware reaches stores.
