Oculus drops base unit price, announces new Oculus Go standalone headset

The Oculus Gear VR has seen some popularity, thanks to Samsung smartphones, but the high-end Oculus Rift platform has not seen many takers. "The team has been fantastic to work with and Spaces offers the unique social experiences and other mechanics to take engagement in VR to a whole new level". It is enabled of using all the applications that are available now for the Samsung, Oculus and Gear VR headset, which need a smartphone to work. The new standalone device has a self-contained PC so it won't require a beefy desktop or expensive smartphone to tether.

Oculus Go was first announced with an image, price point, and vague release window shown behind Zuckerberg on stage. It also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack if you want to plug in your earphones. The Go also comes with new lenses that provide wider field of view with lesser glare. The Oculus Go is also compatible with software designed for Samsung's spin-off headset from Oculus, the Gear VR. It features a higher resolution than the Oculus Rift VR headset, at 2560x1200 pixels. Well, it's a lightweight, self-contained VR headset created to get VR first-timers interacting with Facebook's own VR content. From what it looks like Facebook is extensively betting on hardware pricing to broaden VR appeal. These controllers are being tracked by sensors on the Santa Cruz VR headset and allows "inside-out tracking". The device comes already outfitted with numerous same games that can be found pre-loaded on Samsung's Gear VR device.

In fact, Facebook's CEO admits that the company's system was not well received. But when we can experience these things, when we run up against the limits of reality, VR is going to make that reality that much better.

MS children to lose health insurance in April
In Kansas, the rate dropped from 5.1 percent in 2015 to 4.3 percent in 2016, and it's a almost 30-percent drop from 2013. John's Children's Hospital and Chair of Pediatrics for SIU School of Medicine.

This, as Mark Zuckerberg said will also be the primary means of reaching his goal, that of inducting a billion users to VR.

"A lot of them seem maybe too insane or complex at the start", Zuckerberg said at the conference. Neither of my demos featured large or semi-photorealistic environments, so I'm not sure just how big the performance gap is. We all have limits to our reality.

Barra says that we'll be learning more about Santa Cruz in a few months, and developers ought to be using it soon after that.
