Meanwhile, several attendees at Facebook's big F8 developer conference happening this week have posted photos of a sign suggesting that everyone there will get free Oculus Go headsets tomorrow, May 2.
Several users noted that the 64gb would likely cost more than the $199 32gb version.
Just ahead of Facebook's F8 conference for developers today, photos and new details suggest that the company's low-priced standalone VR headset Oculus Go is close to an official launch. Oculus says that battery life should be up to 2.5 hours of streaming media and video.
Dominican Republic forges tie with China, breaks with Taiwan
Beijing announced on Tuesday morning that it would exchange ambassadors with the Dominican Republic "as soon as practicable". But Beijing considers Taiwan to be a province of China that will eventually be fully reunified.
"For the first time, Oculus brings you a truly standalone VR headset-with no additional hardware, computers, or devices required".
Another item that I love about this headset is the way they've built in-headset stereo audio into the design while still keeping the headset straps fabric and portable. Mainly, the Snapdragon 821 chipset that this device has definitely feels sluggish at times; while I haven't had any lagging with the Oculus UI elements on the home screen, some of the experiences I demoed on the Go took as long as 30 seconds to boot up. Who's picking one up, and which model are you going with?
The Oculus Go, which the company was billed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg as "the easiest way to get into VR", was launched at Facebook's F8 in San Jose, California.
That architecture has helped Facebook and Oculus keep the price down, of course, but it has also forced some compromises.
