The Oculus Go is a great piece of VR technology that allows users to watch Virtual Reality content on the go. Given that no external devices are required to run the Oculus Go (no smartphone or PC), it is a very portable VR solution.
The Oculus Go features a 5.5” 2560 x 1440 WQHD, fast-switch LCD display with a new set of optics providing what the company calls ‘our best lenses yet’. This helps to reduce the screen door effect and offers a higher resolution than the much more expensive Oculus Rift.
The built-in lithium ion battery should provide around two hours for videogames and up to 2.5 hours for streaming media and video. Other important additions also include built in spatial audio so that users won’t need an extra set of headphones to enjoy any of the VR experiences. With social VR also an important part of Facebook’s plans, Oculus Go has an integrated microphone so users can chat to friends and other players online.
