Oculus VR today introduced its new products. The first is the successor to the famous Rift , called Oculus Rift S. It is more comfortable than its predecessor. It has a resolution of 1280×1440 pixels. Also, it no longer needs external cameras and incorporates built-in tracking. To improve product design and improve production, the company has developed it in an unprecedented partnership with China’s Lenovo .
The second Oculus VR is another headset, the Quest. It should be launched alongside Rift S in the second quarter of 2019. According to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, who owns Oculus VR, Quest will incorporate all the most important elements in virtual reality glasses. This product will complete the company’s product generation.
Rift S vs. the Quest
The main difference between the two products is that Rift S is connected to a computer and Quest works independently using only its own hardware.
The two headsets will have the same price: $ 399, about $ 1,500 in direct conversion. And they have the same tracking system, called Oculus Insight. This tracking system does not require external cameras to detect user movements.
The main difference between the two products is that Rift S is connected to a computer. While Quest works independently using only its own hardware. According to Oculus VR, users of Quest should be more casual. On the other hand, Rift S is for those who take games and other applications into virtual reality more seriously. Also for those who can invest a little more in a PC capable of processing these programs.
