The commercial launch begins for the virtual reality helmets of Oculus, which belongs to Facebook. Oculus Rift S and Quest VR have been around for quite some time, but now it seems that the time has come for their commercial launch.
Oculus Quest is a complete virtual reality system that can run independently of a computer with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It has an OLED technology screen with a resolution of 2880 × 1600 pixels, which means that each eye can see resolution images of 1440 × 1600 pixels. The display refresh rate is 72 Hz.
The helmet will be available in two versions, one of which will have an internal storage space of 64 GB, while the other will have a 128 GB internal memory. In the US, the market price will be $399 and $499, respectively.
Oculus Rift S is more powerful than Quest. The basic use for which this helmet is intended is Virtual Reality gaming. It has been developed jointly with Lenovo, while the manufacturer notes that it has been designed with the greatest possible experience of immersion. For this, emphasis has been placed on the screen part, which has a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels, an analysis that actually promises very positive images.
Fresnel lenses with the LCD monitor help to fight blur, according to what Oculus‘ parent Facebook has announced, noting that in this case, the Rift S screens offer 42% more pixels from the helmet it replaces. This fact shows the clear gaming orientation of Oculus Rift S as it wants to offer the most vibrant visual representation of the virtual world.
