KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Facebook has launched the Oculus Go, a standalone virtual reality headset that works without being linked to a smartphone or a computer.

The Oculus Go features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and reportedly boasts a full resolution of 2,560 x 1,440, which puts it right in between the HTC Vive Pro with its max resolution of 2,880 x 1,600, and the Oculus Rift with its resolution of 2,160 x 1,200. Amazon says that it "does not know when or if this item will be back in stock".

The listing also says the device is only eligible for shipping to USA addresses.

As well as the standard 32GB version for $199, there is also a 64GB model available for $249. The reveal could come as soon as Mark Zuckerberg's keynote at 10 a.m.

The Oculus Go is expected to be released around December 2018, and will be able to run existing applications which have been released for Samsung's Gear VR headset.

The price for the 64GB Oculus Go is not known yet. As reported earlier today, the $199 Oculus Go VR headset is now available for pre-order on amazon.com. The experience using the Oculus Go is like watching video on a 30-foot screen.

The Oculus Go is also designed with a lightweight, breathable fabric so that it can be worn for hours at a time. More longer-term, though, is Oculus' decision to use 3DoF - or "three degrees of freedom" - tracking.

Facebook has invested heavily in virtual reality hardware, expecting that the technology could one day move from a niche interest to a widely used platform for gaming, communication and business applications.
