Oculus has been working to craft the future of the televisual, virtual, and entertainment experiences of our collective future. Black-Mirror analogs aside, the technology that Oculus has created in the last few years has been ahead of its time, and their latest creation – Oculus TV – is no different.
Legend has it that an emperor wanted to cover an entire city with leather skins, so his feet would always be met by a soft surface. Then, someone suggested merely strapping leather to his feet, instead – and thus, sandals were born. Oculus seeks to do the same, by allowing you to keep your TV strapped to your face. Maybe a clunky comparison, but Oculus TV is a seamless way to bring the big screen experience with you, wherever you go. Oculus TV is a portable portal to your favorite television shows, virtualizing an 180-inch TV screen wherever you are. The application requires an Oculus Go headset, which might seem like an esoteric piece of tech – but with the VR/AR revolution underway, it soon could be an essential in every home. Featuring sports viewing, Netflix, Hulu and other streaming surfaces, the Oculus TV lets you take the home-theatre mobile.
