Oculus Working On New "Affordable" Wireless Headset

by Javy Gwaltney on Oct 06, 2016 at 07:55 AM

During the Oculus Connect 3 keynote, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talked about a new wireless VR headset that the company is working on. Zuckerberg didn't reveal any details beyond that the headset was meant to exist as an option between low-budget headsets like Gear VR and computer-based headsets like the Oculus Rift, and that it's intended to be a mid-tier, affordable option.

A short video showcased someone wearing the headset, which looked a good bit like the Gear VR headset, but we didn't see what they were seeing. We'll have to wait to get more details about this headset, which is currently being prototyped, but few would argue against the notion that more affordable options is something that virtual reality needs to get a stronger foothold with consumers.
