During their Oculus Connect event yesterday, Oculus revealed a few new things to expect.
Probably the most interesting announcement during the show was the announcement of a wireless Oculus Rift by the CEO of Facebook (owners of Oculus), Mark Zuckerberg.
At the show, he unveiled a new Oculus branded virtual reality headset, which has been built to take on some of the other mobile VR headset out there, such as the Gear VR, or Google Cardboard.
Zuckerberg not only wants this to be a portable VR solution, but also a more affordable option.
At the show, he showed off a prototype version of the wireless Rift, on the back of which is a circular hub that houses all of the electronics, with ports on the side for connectivity, and a similar front and side design to the wired version of the Oculus Rift.
However, aside from that, Zuck didn’t reveal much more. Thankfully, Oculus did release the following video to show off the prototype.
As soon as we do hear more, we will let you know about what you can expect from this wireless version.
