Oculus Go VR Unveiled for $200

But whatever Oculus releases will play a crucial role in shaping that world - and its plans have just gotten a lot more complicated. It might not be as feature-packed, but the Oculus Go still offers a well-priced VR headset at a fraction of the price.

Oculus Go features: What's new?

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, speaking at the recent Oculus Connect conference, said that the social networking behemoth aims to put its VR hardware in the hands of 1 billion people.

At the time of writing, Oculus hasn't announced when the Oculus Go will hit United Kingdom shores. Though Oculus hasn't revealed how much Santa Cruz could cost, Barra still refers to the Rift as Oculus' flagship product. The company began trying out price drops, starting with a $200 discount earlier this year.

How does that compare to the competition?

The Oculus Go will straddle the market between the Rift and the Samsung Gear, a $129 headset that runs on some of Samsung's higher-priced phones.

Trump as a " moron ", the president suggested he'd win an aptitude test in an interview with Forbes . A State Department spokeswoman later said Tillerson doesn't use that kind of language.

"I am more committed than ever to the future of virtual reality", Zuckerberg reassured a crowd of computer programmers gathered in San Jose, California, for Oculus' annual conference. It's not a replacement for the Gear VR, and Carmack predicted that five years from now, phone-based VR would still have more users than all-in-one headsets.

Oculus Go design: What does it look like? It's made of a lightweight fabric, comes with integrated spatial audio - so others can hear what you're hearing, if you want them to - and will be fully compatible with all Samsung Gear VR apps. Also, the Rift requires a high-powered PC in order to power the headset, and cables and wires that mean it are not handy enough for the users.

"VR will be a new way for business to collaborate online and will bring the richness of interactive graphics to more business scenarios", said Brian Blau, Gartner research vice president.

Facebook has had to slash Oculus Rift pricing in an attempt to boost disappointing sales, one of the Oculus co-founders quit and Facebook had to pay out $500 million to settle a lawsuit filed against Oculus by a VR game development company. But how? Let's talk specifics.

Oculus has partnered with Cisco for trials of a VR version of Spark, its collaboration platform that supports messaging, voice calls and video conversations.

The stand-alone headset doesn't require plugging in a smartphone or a cord tethering it to a personal computer like other VR, or virtual reality, headsets. It is facing an intense competition from rivals such as Google Daydream by Google and the Vive system by HTC Corp. According to the analyst that works with IDC, John Delaney, if this VR doesn't go "mass market at this price point", Facebook can conclude that "it never will". The new optics offer a wide field of view with reduced glare. However, there's also a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening, or for when you're getting on your housemates' nerves.
