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?
