Mark Zucker­berg, owner of Ocu­lus’ par­ent com­pany Face­book, has made no se­cret of his am­bi­tion to bring vir­tual re­al­ity to the masses. And, af­ter a slow-ish start, that vi­sion is pick­ing up mo­men­tum. This year’s Ocu­lus Go showed that it was pos­si­ble to en­joy de­cent-qual­ity VR gam­ing with­out a PC or smart­phone, and the Ocu­lus Quest – due in spring 2019 – should of­fer more flex­i­bil­ity. As well as trump­ing the Go’s stor­age ca­pa­bil­i­ties, pro­vid­ing 64GB, it’ll of­fer six de­grees of free­dom (mean­ing you can walk around your phys­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment). But un­like the Rift, it won’t need ex­ter­nal sen­sors to fa­cil­i­tate this, as four built-in sen­sors will en­sure that you don’t bump into any­thing. With 50 app games ex­pected to ac­com­pany the launch, Ocu­lus has next sum­mer vir­tu­ally sewn up.

T3S AYS: Ocu­lus’ new head­set gives you more free­dom than ever to ex­plore new worlds.
