Facebook's Oculus Go VR headset now shipping to Canada

Facebook's Oculus Go VR headset now shipping to Canada

Depending on how many units Amazon made available starting at midnight, selling out so quickly could indicate that the Oculus Go will be a big hit for Facebook. Nor does it require a separate smartphone to provide the screen and brains of the device. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that the Oculus Go headset is the "easiest way to get into VR". Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Oculus Go, but has not revealed a shipping date. There is also a companion app in the Play Store or app store (for iOS users) for downloading games and apps for the headset. The company has released plenty of details today during the Facebook Developers Conference, with Facebook VP of VR Hugo Barra taking to the stage as part of the keynote address. The Go can follow the movements of the wearer's head, and comes with a small handheld controller and trackpad. Apple is reportedlyworking on its own headset that can run both VR and AR technology.

Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching. Reddit users were posting photos of locked cabinets full of Oculus Go hardware, and signs at the F8 registration desk stating that attendees would be able to pick up their complementary Oculus Go hardware at 2 P.M. on May 2.

Getting along with Russian Federation not bad thing: says Trump
In a statement, Conaway said he was " extremely disappointed with the overzealous redactions" made by the intelligence agencies. The committee found that there was "no evidence" of coordination between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

It's not clear how numerous fully immersive Oculus Rift games will be playable on the Go, which runs on a processor meant for mobile phones (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821), rather than the powerful processors and graphics cards required to use the Rift.

"We think of VR as a spectrum", said Muthukumar, with the Rift at one end and the Gear VR at the other. Starting at $199 Dollars for 32 GB of storage (or $249 USD for the 64 GB model), Oculus Go was designed with comfort in mind. In general, VR games and apps designed for mobile phones are far more simplistic than the ones designed for computer-connected systems.
