Oculus Quest Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook continues to bet big on VR. At Oculus Connect 5 (OC5) the company introduced Oculus Quest – its first all-in-one VR system with six degrees of freedom. It lets you walk through virtual space, much like you would in the real, physical world.

The Oculus Quest system comprises an all-in-one VR headset and a pair of Touch controllers. It lets you interact with people and objects in a natural way.

Facebook says there will be more than 50 games and experiences for its new VR system at launch including favourite Oculus Rift games like Robo Recall, The Climb, and Moss. Expect even more games to come later. Speaking of which, the first episode of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR series will debut on Oculus Quest.

The ground-breaking Oculus Quest requires no PC, no wires, and no external sensors.

Facebooks says the Oculus Quest includes the same best-in-class optics found on the uber affordable Oculus Go, with a display resolution of 1600×1440 per eye. It incorporates a lens spacing adjustment to help maximise visual comfort.

Built-in audio has also been improved, promising high-quality immersive sound with deeper bass.

Oculus QuestTogether with Oculus Quest, the company also revealed Oculus Insight, a breakthrough technology that powers inside-out tracking, Guardian, and Touch Controller tracking. The system uses four ultra-wide sensors and computer vision algorithms to track you exact position in real time, without any external sensors.

Insight gives you a “greater sense of immersion, presence, and mobility, plus the ability to go beyond room-scale.”

Guardian, meanwhile, keeps you safe when you’re in VR.
