Oculus introduces $399 wireless Quest headset, Go gets YouTube VR

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Since the advent of virtual reality hardware, there's been a drive toward wireless. But the dream of an exceptional VR headset that doesn't tangle isn't quite there yet — the performance and graphics quality can't compare to wired systems. Facebook's Oculus seems to believe it has cracked the code, though. At Oculus Connect 5 (OC5), the new all-in-one Oculus Quest headset debuted with the advertising copy: "This is the VR experience everyone's been waiting for." In addition to the new hardware, the VR headset maker announced that its mobile app now supports the Oculus Rift, and that Oculus Go will soon gain access to YouTube VR's full library.

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

All the VR headsets we've seen up to this point require some other device to do all the heavy lifting. With Oculus and Vive, it's a gaming PC. With GearVR and Daydream, it's a smartphone. The Oculus Go is a fully standalone VR headset, and it can be yours today for $199.

The hardware looks like a slimmed down version of the PC-based Oculus headset. Oculus Go plugs into the same content ecosystem as GearVR, and it does run Android behind the scenes.

In VR news: HTC announces VIVE PRO and wireless adapter, Oculus and Xiaomi introduce Oculus Go and Mi VR Standalone

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Many companies are still trying to make VR happen, though it feels like those couple of years when 3D TVs were being pushed and then completely disappeared. If you ask me, there's merit to the immersive experience of VR in certain situations, but the wider and easier adoption will be for AR when it's commoditized. But I digress. We've been keeping an eye on HTC's VIVE and Oculus for a while, even though they're not technically related to Android, but for the sake of information here are the two companies' CES 2018 news.

Monday, August 21st, 2017

For anyone wanting to get into VR, the number of options and different price points can be a bit overwhelming. At the lower end, you have Google's Cardboard or Daydream viewers, which can be used in conjunction with Android phones to offer a fairly basic VR experience.

Oculus adds Chromecast support to Gear VR

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

You might recall a Daydream VR tidbit in the torrent of Google I/O news earlier this month; Daydream 2.0 will include Chromecast support. Not to be outdone, Oculus has announced that Gear VR can do that starting now, or just as soon as a new version of the Oculus app can be rolled out to Samsung devices. This makes VR just a tiny bit less antisocial.

The nature of VR makes it a more solitary experience than other forms of digital entertainment.

The tale of ZeniMax vs. The World of VR is developing into a modern-day saga of Homeric proportions with each new filing. Although Oculus/Facebook was found innocent of ZeniMax's previous accusations, it did end up having to cough up around $500 million as a result of NDA violations, copyright infringements, and for lying about a few things. Even so, it seemed as if the general dance was winding down and all the monsters short of the inevitable appeals had been slain.
