Oculus Go Standalone VR Headset

For a while now, getting access to virtual reality meant one of two things: either you had to plug a bunch of sensors and an unwieldy helmet into your computer or gaming console or you had to tuck your smartphone into the front of a headset. Both have major drawbacks for obvious reasons. Finally, however, Oculus has announced their first ever standalone wireless VR headset, simply named Go.

The Oculus Go is a major leap forward in VR tech, in that it enables you to have full PC-level virtual reality without having to tether yourself to an external processing unit. It also doesn’t require the use of an external sensor array, but still offers way more capability than those cutesy smartphone headsets – including the brand’s most advanced lenses to date. Plus, when it launches in 2018, it will have full access to over 1,000 games, social apps, 360-degree experiences, and more. And, astoundingly, it’s going to retail starting at just $199 – for reference, that’s still less than most comparable consoles and computers.
