Oculus Working On Standalone VR Headset

Oculus Working On Standalone VR Headset

Mark Zuckerburg CEO & Founder, Facebook, revealed at yesterday’s Oculus Conn3ct event in California that Oculus are working on a standalone VR headset. He described mobile VR as, “A great and affordable product,” while PR VR offers, “The highest quality of VR experience you can get today,” before going on to say, “We believe there’s a sweet spot between those.”

Demo, No Product. Yet.

Well, colour us surprised, but is Zuckerburg pitching the best of both worlds, or a Jack of all trades? He describes this sweet spot as, “A standalone VR product that is high quality and affordable and you can bring with you into the world.” Work is already well underway on the prototype, but “It’s still early – we have a demo, but not a product yet.”

Look Ma - no wires: The Oculus standalone headset prototype.

Update: It's called the Santa Cruz.
