Virtual Reality is the future of interactive entertainment and this future has its roots in the year 2012 with Oculus VR. Enjoying a remarkably successful Kickstarter campaign, the young company set a VR renaissance in motion, gathering 2.437 million USD for the development of the first dev kits. This represents a full 974% above the target they initially set for the successful financing of the project. Supported by prominent video games developers and with the media abuzz with excitement, development proceeded at a remarkable pace, until Oculus VR was finally bought by Facebook in 2014 - for a grand total of 2 billion USD. Now the company has created the Oculus Go, a mobile version of their VR headset.

New Generation of Advanced VR TechnologyVR pioneer Oculus has integrated an OLED display with a resolution of 2.560 x 1.440 into the headset that offers a wide 100-degree field of view. Moreover, the Fresnel lenses are also utilised so as to minimise the visibility of the screen's pixel structure and screen door effect. Fixed Foveated Rendering is applied in the centre of the displays with 1.280 x 1.280 pixels, which is then reduced towards the edges by ¼ or 1/16th. The reduction in performance requirements result in a dramatic improvement to image and graphics quality. The refresh rate of both displays is set to either 60 Hz or 72 Hz. App developers decide which frequency their game uses. The distance of the headset's lenses to the eyes themselves (dioptre adjustment) is enabled via the included spacer, which also supports the use of spectacles.
In addition to the visual refinements, the 3D Audio drivers also serve to increase acoustic immersion to the next level. Alternatively, there is also a 3,5 mm jack for your own headphones or headsets. The headset itself includes an integrated loudspeaker and an on-/off switch. The integrated battery is charged over the Micro-B USB connector, a compatible cable is included, a charger is available for purchase separately. Two, AA batteries required for the controllers are included with the headset. Android 7.21 is updated using WiFi and Bluetooth. An android-powered smartphone or iOS phone is required for this.
