A standalone, wireless virtual reality headset. Oculus is a subsidiary of Facebook.
The original Oculus Quest was a VR game-changer, and the new Quest 2 offers significant upgrades in power, memory, graphics, resolution, framerate and 3D cinematic audio, as well as being smaller and lighter. It's also a heck of a lot cheaper.
The Oculus Quest has cameras all over it, which it uses in many fascinating ways. One of those is to track your motion within a room. Another, which has been an experimental feature up until now, is to watch your hands.
The Oculus Quest is a stunning piece of technology, an all-in-one, totally self-contained VR setup that drags virtual reality out of the lofty realms of nerd-dom and makes the incredible experience of VR something the unwashed masses can enjoy.
Facebook-owned Oculus has a new virtual reality headset to show off. The Oculus Quest sits between the portable Oculus Go and the PC-connected Oculus Rift in the range, needs no connecting wires or external sensors, and is arriving at the start of next year for $399.
