It launches spring 2019, with a North American retail price of $399 (approximately £300, but United Kingdom price TBA).
Or at least it will once you combine it with a new pair of Touch controllers, as these have also been redesigned for the Rift S to accommodate even more sensors to make that room-scale VR possible without having to resort to external ones.
After dropping the Oculus Go previous year, Facebook's Oculus division has finally unveiled Oculus Rift S, the successor to its flagship virtual reality headset, and exclusively for use with PC. In addition, there has been a shift from the OLED panels used in the original Rift to LCD on the Rift S.
The new headset also comes with a built-in inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) Oculus Insight positional tracking (designed for the Oculus Quest) and therefore does not need any external sensors like the original Oculus Rift.Читайте также: Stranger Things release series three trailer
Elsewhere, the Rift S bumps the resolution for each eye from 1,080 x 1,200 to 1,280 x 1,440. In fact, even PC requirements for both headsets are the same.
Other changes include replacing the on-ear headphones of its predecessor with speakers positioned near your ear, a slightly larger field-of-view, no manual adjustment of distance between your eyes (IPD), a PlayStation VR-esque design instead of a flexible strap, and one display instead of two.
Beyond that, the Rift S should be a more comfortable device, with co-designer Lenovo claiming the new headset has better weight distribution and light blocking, along with a single-cable system that makes for a clutter-free experience. The Rift S was developed in partnership with Lenovo, which receives substantial billing on the new hardware. It also supports plugging your own headphones into the headset, rather than needing to use the integrated headphones.
Those cameras also help power what Oculus calls its Passthrough+ tech, which lets you use the cameras to see the outside world in "stereo-correct" computer vision inside the headset. For this initial announcement, Oculus seems to only be describing the Rift S is broad strokes, which means that we'll be waiting a little while for precise specifications.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
