  • Facebook Announces $399 Oculus Quest VR Headset

In addition to the new hardware, the VR headset maker announced that its mobile app now supports the Oculus Rift, and that Oculus Go will soon gain access to YouTube VR's full library. Facebook bought Oculus in 2014 for $2 billion, and Zuckerberg has pledged to spend billions of dollars more on VR devices and investments in VR content companies. The Quest also features its own audio solution, with earphones embedded into the headstrap, providing 360° audio as you game.

The Oculus Quest is due to launch in the spring of 2019.

Within Insight, there is also a feature called Guardian that is created to avoid users from bumping into walls or other objects that might be on users way when they used Quest.

While some call virtual reality the future of gaming, computing, and so much more, the only way to get the most premium experience is by having the VR headset wired to a computer. These sensors also allow Quest to go beyond roomscale, with Oculus saying it can go into a 4,000 square feet room. The social-media company acquired Oculus VR, a headset company, in 2014.

Michelle Guthrie Fired From Position As ABC Managing Director
Her departure, after serving less than half of her five year term, came after discussions with the board over several months. Deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek said she was perplexed by the decision and the board's statements had not clarified it.

The Quest will also ship with the same Touch controllers people use for their Rift devices, Zuckerberg said. Oculus may have led with the Rift, but the company appears much more interested in pushing the idea of standalone VR.

'This isn't a question of whether we are going to get there, it is how, ' Zuckerberg said, while acknowledging the path may be longer than first expected. You need a good CPU, and if you want Rift level content you really need a powerful GPU - such as AMD's Radeon RX 56 - which goes for almost $700, or you need to suck it up and go with crummier graphics while saving money on something like Nvidia's GeForce GTX 970 - which can be had for around $350 if you're lucky.

Just like the Oculus Go, the Quest has a display resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye.
