Facebook Announces Oculus Quest VR Headset
The beginning of the next virtual reality experience. Young adolescent’s reaction to be exact in one word “Whoa!”
What are the pros & cons for more than concerned parents already dealing with their teenager or young adult spending hours playing a video game.
Oculus Quest is Facebook’s big-time next-generation VR headset. This device is wireless, comes with Touch Controllers, and offers 6DoF (6 degrees of freedom.) It has built-in audio (with a system similar to previous all-in-one mobile VR systems) – and it’s running its own OS (based on Android). Inside the device is a series of sensors that allows the device to run free from other devices.
“Second, it needs to support hands, because that’s the way you’re going to interact with things and people.” Finally, the Facebook CEO said, a successful VR device needs to support 6DoF, or six degrees of freedom, tracking.”
Oculus Quest was introduced for the first time at OC5, the developer conference for Oculus VR. The device was made available for testing at OC5 immediately – and it worked with not only single-player, but multi-player, too. Get a couple of these headsets and roll right out the box.
