Oculus has been looking to really branch out in introducing new ways users can experience VR. Well, today the company revealed their latest new headset and the tech for an upcoming new device codename “Project Santa Cruz”.
Meet the new Oculus Go, a wireless standalone headset that won’t require the use of any device such as a smartphone or PC. Its aim is to peak the interest of mainstream consumers who’re not necessarily too familiar with its tech or perhaps don’t acquire the proper smartphone for the use of the VR headset. Oculus Go puts all those issues to rest with a simple on-the-go VR headset which will provide an optimal experience through various media such as; film, concerts, games, sports, or simply hanging out with friends. Headset has more lightweight than many other VR phone headsets, integrated spatial audio built system, it’s even infused with a headphone jack.
