If you don’t have hun­dreds to spend on a com­pre­hen­sive VR kit, chances are your ex­pe­ri­ence of af­ford­able vir­tual re­al­ity runs to the charm­ing Google Card­board. Oculus wants to change that with the Oculus Go, an all-in-one wire­less VR de­vice that doesn’t need to be hooked up to a smart­phone or ex­pen­sive PC.

Oculus reck­ons the Go is so light and com­fort­able, thanks to breath­able mesh fab­ric and fa­cial pad­ding, that you’ll hardly no­tice you’re wear­ing it. We’re keen to throw one on, espe­cially to see if the new glare-re­duc­tion lenses and fast-switch LCD dis­play (2560x1440 res­o­lu­tion) are as crisp and clear as we’re hop­ing.

The Go also comes with a re­mote con­troller, but don’t ex­pect it to fully track your mo­tions. Hey, what do you ex­pect for a small price tag? T3 SAYS: A tan­ta­lis­ing mid­dle ground be­tween bar­gain VR and the pre­mium set­ups.
