FACE­BOOK TO SELL POR­TA­BLE HEAD­SET FOR VIR­TUAL RE­AL­ITY

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - World -

SAN JOSE, CAL­I­FOR­NIA:

Face­book Inc is launch­ing a new vir­tual re­al­ity head­set that does not re­quire a sep­a­rate com­puter to op­er­ate, al­low­ing more mo­bile uses than the com­pany’s ex­ist­ing Ocu­lus Rift prod­uct, CEO Mark Zucker­berg said on Wed­nes­day. Zucker­berg, speak­ing at a con­fer­ence for vir­tual re­al­ity de­vel­op­ers, said the “Ocu­lus Go” de­vice would cost $199 and ship early next year, too late for this year’s hol­i­day shop­ping sea­son but likely ahead of ri­vals. Face­book has in­vested heav­ily in vir­tual re­al­ity hard­ware in hopes the tech­nol­ogy, which of­fers a 360-de­gree panoramic view of far­away or imag­i­nary spa­ces, will move from a niche in­ter­est to a widely used plat­form for gam­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions.
