Facebook Announces Oculus Go Standalone VR Headset Arriving In 2018 For $199

  • Oculus Go is a standalone VR headset coming in early 2018 for just $199

Oculus has now announced its first standalone VR headset at its Connect 4 conference in San Jose.

It's going to be hard to shift the price down much lower than that for many retailers, but we'd be surprised if there wasn't some sort of temporary reduction to the cost of the main headset, along with a few bundles including games. As well, Oculus and Facebook announced their new stand-alone VR headset at an impressive $199. For $900, or a rather reasonable and oddly specific £685.62, a business gets everything it needs for room-scale VR along with enterprise-grade warranties, a VR commercial license, and a dedicated customer support channel.

The conference also became a witness of the launch of Oculus for Business, which is a professional Rift bundle for businesses.

In the United Kingdom, some hospices caring for end-of-life patients with terminal illnesses are experimenting with VR headsets to transport their patients back to familiar areas and give them relief from the walls of healthcare units, and in a recent interview, Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer said the technology may also one day be applied to air travel, "because it's way better than the back-of-the-seat monitor or my phone". The Oculus Go can also be worn even when users are wearing glasses. This is clubbed with spatial audio. These posts could be rotated, and interacted without the need to wear headsets, the company said.

Just like the Samsung Gear VR, the Oculus Go will allow users to spin around in the VR world.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg described Oculus Go on his Facebook page as "the most accessible virtual reality experience" that they've ever built. That said, they won't be able to move freely; something that's possible with the higher end Rift. Barra said that Oculus Go will land with day-one compatibility with the entire GearVR library, which may indicate that it will contain smartphone-level processing as opposed to something comparable to a high-end PC. Oculus was acquired by Facebook in early 2014.With an aim to control your VR with your looks Oculus invested in The Eye Tribe.

Oculus Go will ship with a handheld controller and work with the same apps available on Samsung's Gear VR headset.

The social media giant will start shipping the headset from next year.

In the coming weeks, users in Spaces will be able to create "Kits" (pictured above), which comprise of virtual objects, including toys, games, 3D collages, costume props and more. It would be interesting to see how the market shapes up once both these headsets are available to the public.
