Oculus to Release VR Wireless Headset 2018

By 2018 Oculus plans to release virtual reality (VR) wireless headsets. Headsets called Pacific are similar to Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View. The difference, Pacific will not need a smartphone.

Pacific will be armed with Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipset. The plan of this wireless headset will be sold more expensive than VR headset usually. Oculus will sell it for $ 200.

But as the impact of carrying wireless design, tracking ability will be lost. To cope, Oculus also developed another wireless headset that is Santa Cruz. This headset will bring the onboard camera for tracking feature.

Santa Cruz is promised to be as tough as Rift, but does not need an external computer. Although still in development stage, Oculus plans to allow users to do VR streaming.

As quoted by Tech Spot, one of Oculus's representative Alan Cooper said it believes the investment made Oculus will make VR headset increasingly exist.

This is expected to help the development of VR. Because the sales of VR headset in the first quarter of 2017 less satisfactory. Of the total 2.3 million headsets on the market, only 766 thousand units were sold. There are still many players who prefer not to use VR for more practical reasons.
