Oculus have surprisingly announced a follow-up to their Oculus Rift platform with better resolution, tracking, and at a low cost.
The new headset comes with a huge list of improvements and changes including:
- Higher resolution display with improved optics and increased pixel density for reduced screen door effect
- Oculus Insight inside-out tracking technology for precise, accurate roomscale tracking—no external sensors required
- Oculus Touch controllers, for authentic hand presence and input
- Passthrough+, which gives you a glimpse of the real world around you without ever taking off the headset.
The new headset features a screen of 2560×1440 with 3 subpixels per pixel, up from 2 and a resolution of 2160×1200 on the original Rift
The headset also features 5 cameras for inside out tracking, removing the webcam and stands needed for the original Rift.
Oculus Rift S launches this Spring and is currently priced at just $399
