Facebook has unveiled the Oculus Rift S, a new virtual reality headset for the PC that represents a major upgrade to its 2016 product, the Oculus Rift.
Nate Mitchell, head of virtual reality products and cofounder of Facebook’s Oculus division, said in an interview with GamesBeat that the company will launch the Rift S soon for $400.
In the meantime, the company is on track to launch its Oculus Quest wireless VR headset this spring.
It has higher resolution, with better lenses, and a redesigned, more ergonomic head strap created in partnership with Lenovo, Mitchell said.
It has a higher resolution, redesigned controllers, improved lenses, better ergonomics, and an easier setup process with “passthrough” vision, which lets you see the environment around you without requiring you to take off a headset.
