Facebook announces Oculus Quest All-in-One VR System

Oculus' Santa Cruz standalone VR headset has been present at its Connect conference for the past couple of years, and the company has promised it was on the way soon.

With that being said, the $399 price tag gets you the Oculus Quest with 64GB of onboard storage and two Oculus Touch controllers. It includes four ultra wide-angle sensors and computer vision algorithms to track your position in the real world without any need of external sensors. At Oculus Connect 5 (OC5), the new all-in-one Oculus Quest headset debuted with the advertising copy: "This is the VR experience everyone's been waiting for".

Oculus Quest (previously codenamed Santa Cruz) is similar to the Oculus Go launched a year ago in that it's an entirely self-contained solution, with no need for an external device like a PC or phone.

Oculus Quest will launch in Spring 2019 for $399 United States dollars.

Oculus Quest builds on what the Go offers in several significant ways.

Called the Oculus Quest, this VR headset will provide six degrees of freedom and will come with Oculus Touch wireless controllers.

Oculus today took the wraps off its brand new VR headset, the Oculus Quest.

But what's unclear is whether enterprise developers will be looking at Oculus headsets for corporate use cases. And presumably we'll see an upgraded Rift-if that's what they're calling headsets that connect to PCs-at some point after the Quest launches.

Right now, it's a little unclear what the future of VR looks like in the PC space.

Since the advent of virtual reality hardware, there's been a drive toward wireless. Shipping is slated to begin next spring, and we're certain to hear more about the latest tweaks and titles in the months leading up to its release. The problem is that current VR headsets still have a lot of rough edges. At the very least, it offers a simpler, faster way to jump into gaming.
