OCCULUS LEAPS CLOSER TO VIRTUAL REALITY
The company's third-generation prototype, Crescent Bay, is markedly better than the last two iterations and is the closest we are to the virtual reality experience, according to tech journalists who took the device for a spin.
Unveiled at the Occulus Connect conference, visitors were given a demo of the new headset which is remarkably lighter than its predecessors and, for the first time, comes with integrated audio. LEDs built into the headset's rear add 360-degree tracking to the device which comes with a higher frame rate and resolution. “This is still incredibly early hardware. There are plenty of technical challenges left to solve for the consumer Rift, but Crescent Bay is truly the best virtual reality headsets we've ever built,” the company has said.
