No PC. No wires. Facebook just announced a new virtual reality headset: Oculus Quest

Comment

During the Oculus Connect 5 keynote, Mark Zuckerberg announced the Oculus Quest headset, a new standalone virtual reality system that doesn’t require a PC to run.

“This is it. This is the all-in-one VR experience that we have been waiting for”, Mark Zuckberg

The standalone VR device will be the first wireless Oculus hardware to sport positional tracking, both for the headset itself and the dual hand controllers.

  • The headset will ship with 50-plus games made specifically for the device at launch.

Launching in spring 2019 for $399, Oculus Quest will feature two handheld controllers like the Oculus Rift, both of which can be tracked in real-time by the headset’s sensors
