Oculus Go Gives Us What We Need

24th July 2018

Oculus Go is about to go wireless to improve user experience

Despite many efforts, Virtual Reality has never really managed to hit the big leagues. Every year the interest grows and the number of options too. However it needs something to drag it over the line to the everyday mainstream. While it’s arguable that both the PlayStation VR and Samsung Gear VR helped it reach public consciousness in a way other headsets couldn’t manage, they still imposed restrictions on adoption. People don’t want the faff of setting up computers, trailing cables and installing trackers. If you are using a smartphone then they don’t want to be taking it in and out of the headset.

Oculus Go aims to solve this. It cuts away the cable and removes the smartphone from the equation by bundling everything into one device. Despite only offering three-degrees of freedom (DoF), compared with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR’s six, Oculus Go is easily the most compelling case for VR adoption yet. Go also give s a much higher resolution that many of the current devices available.

Go’s approach is nothing new, at least globally. The Chinese VR market is flooded with similar devices but Oculus Go is firmly focused on Western markets. Its marriage of Oculus’ mobile VR interface, expertise in games publishing and dedicated VR mobile hardware means it’s just as desirable to pick up as it is impossible to put down.
