Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Debuts the Oculus Quest

Oculus Quest announced: a wireless VR headset for $399

"Finally, the Facebook CEO said, a successful VR device needs to support 6DoF, or six degrees of freedom, tracking", the Zuckbot added. Launched at Oculus Connect 5 keynote, the Quest is touted to be the most immersive VR gaming experience, thanks to some stellar breakthroughs in headset tech.

Oculus Quest will launch in Spring 2019 for $399 United States dollars. The supplied controllers look a lot like the Rift's controllers and have the same button layout - but with the loop positions above, rather than below your hands. The Go is meant to make good VR affordable, the Quest provides a standalone experience with high-quality Rift-like experiences and the Rift can connect to a PC for the highest-end experiences possible.

Facebook on Wednesday unveiled an upgraded Oculus virtual reality headset with the power to handle the intensive graphics of digital worlds in a wire-free experience.

Oculus will include two of the Rift's Touch controllers with the Quest in order to provide a consistent, yet familiar method of interacting with objects in virtual space. Insight gives you a greater sense of immersion, presence, and mobility, plus the ability to go beyond room-scale.

Slated to ship in the spring of next year, the headset combines some of the experiences and hardware of the flagship Oculus Rift, such as the Oculus Touch controllers, and the standalone nature of the Oculus Go.

Seeing as we have no real idea what date that actually translates to, it's hard to pinpoint exactly when to expect Oculus Quest to launch.

Just like the Oculus Go, the Quest has a display resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye. What Oculus hasn't quite detailed is how the scanning works, whether its completely automatic or if its manually operated.

Oculus also announced a new technology called Oculus Insight. This figure is well under what many VR fans expected the standalone HMD to cost, particularly in knowing that the headset is aiming for Rift-quality experiences.
