The new device, the developers are going to abandon the base stations.
Last week the ranks of Facebook left one of the founders of Oculus VR Brendan IRIB (Brendan Iribe), which provoked a lot of rumors and speculation about the future development of the segment of virtual reality. It was reported that one of the probable reasons for his departure was the curtailing of the development of a successor for VR headset Oculus Rift, the consumer version of which debuted in 2016.
However, according to foreign colleagues, this information is not true and next year the shops will do a new version of the Oculus Rift. However, it is not “revolutionary” Rift 2, but rather an improved version of the headset the first generation, known as Rift S.
The new device, the developers are going to abandon the base stations, placing all necessary for work of manipulators sensors “under the hood” of the headset, like the Oculus self-sufficient Quest. Resolution displays will be increased from 1080 x 1200 dpi up to, presumably, 1600 x 1440 pixels.
According to available information, the novelty will be aiming to compete with the rather expensive HTC Vive Pro and with Windows devices Mixed Reality. The recommended cost of the latter varies in the range from 300 to 500 dollars, while the decision HTC fully loaded is estimated to be several times more expensive.
