Oculus launches new powerful wireless headset

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a new virtual reality headset, the Oculus Quest, that he is hoping will jumpstart the nascent VR industry that has yet to catch on with mainstream consumers. The new system is called the Oculus Quest, and it's another standalone VR headset, much like its immediate predecessor the Oculus Go. But to track your position, the headset has four "ultra-light" sensors on the headset's edges, which can register your position in a room relative to your surroundings. We also unveiled Oculus Insight, our breakthrough technology that powers inside-out tracking, Guardian, and Touch controller tracking.

Stay tuned for more details from Oculus Connect 5! The Go is meant to make good VR affordable, the Quest provides a standalone experience with high-quality Rift-like experiences and the Rift can connect to a PC for the highest-end experiences possible. The Oculus Rift has to be connected to a powerful PC, which drives up cost, and it requires external sensors to enable 6DoF tracking.

Oculus is moving swiftly along with the development of its virtual reality (VR) headsets. Its motion controllers are similar to (but not identical) to those used for Oculus Touch. Facebook has said the addition of this third device completes their roadmap, and that app compatibility will be retained for future products in each of these segmentations (e.g., Oculus Go apps will run on Oculus Go 2).

Bollywood actress accuses Nana Patekar of sexual harassment
Tanushree has alleged that everybody knows that Nana Patekar has a history of assaulting women in Bollywood. In the film industry, everybody knows that he is rude to women and has also beaten them on the sets.

Just like the Oculus Go, the Quest has a display resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye. And to make matters worse, it seems the Quest won't actually go on sale until spring 2019. That's not to say it isn't fun - but from cable management to proper camera placement, there's a lot of fiddling to get right. That standalone VR headset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 3GB of RAM.
