Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, unveiled an all new mobile virtual reality headset at Oculus Connect 4 in San Jose, which he called as ‘the most accessible VR headset yet’.
Called “Oculus Go”, it starts at $199 and it’s going to start shipping in 2018. It seems that the upcoming mobile headset will be a similar experience to the Gear VR, enabling you to spin around but not move freely.
According to Facebook VP of VR Hugo Barra the device is hands-down the simplest way for developers to get engaged with virtual reality. It’s also lightweight and feels extremely soft to wear, he noted. It will sport lenses as well that have the same wide field-of-view as Rift in addition to having the same controller like the one that ships with the Gear VR.
