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.
