Facebook unveils Oculus Go VR headset

There are two types of headsets available on the market: those like Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View, which require a smartphone to operate, or rigs like Oculus Rift that work with expensive PCs. The Rift also remains a wired unit that requires a connection with your PC, which makes it a disappointing alternative to Oculus's PC-free 'Santa Cruz' headset that's now in development. The headset alone creates the VR experience.

With the Rift bundle, users will get the Oculus Rift itself, touch controllers, sensors, and a set of free VR apps to start one's own collection.

Zuckerberg touted an 80-year-old British grandmother who uses virtual reality because she's too old now to go "on holiday", and talked about how the technology would let his daughters experience being on the International Space Station.

This price reduction is good news for gamers wanting to join the VR action, it's still a high price to play, but it makes it more affordable. Now, Oculus is preparing its first all-in-one VR headset known as the Oculus Go. You can essentially pause your VR game, for example, and then open, overlay, and pin the desktop experience.

The company is also permanently cutting the price of the current Oculus Rift; get it and a Touch controller for $399.

While Zuckerberg still believes in the promise of Oculus, the VR unit has struggled with setbacks over the past year.

Oculus has also reworked Home as part of Rift Core 2.0.

Facebook bought Oculus in 2014 for $2 billion and paid another $1 billion for employee retention bonuses and other deals. Also below, is a newly released video further highlighting Audi's use of Oculus for Business by allowing customers to customize and get a better feel of "their dream vehicle". It will ship with integrated audio so you don't have to use headphones with the device.

Users can put various in-game achievements on display, and see their library come to life as a collection of retro cartridges that you can actually use to launch apps.
