Oculus Go will also come with integrated speakers along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. While the headset is a standalone product, developers who are making apps and games for the Samsung Gear VR will be able to port those apps to the Oculus Go. Moreover, Oculus Go comes with lenses that will offer owners “a wide field of view with significantly reduced glare”.

“We believe that the future can be a lot better,”

Zuckerberg said in a 15-minute presentation on the first day of the Oculus Connect developer conference in San Jose, California.

“It’s not about escaping reality, it’s about making it better.”

Oculus also revealed information about another next-generation standalone VR hardware product, namely “Santa Cruz”. It showed off two positionally tracked controllers, with infrared LEDs, that will work with the inside-out tracking on the headset. This will reportedly allow the “Santa Cruz” hardware to offer owners “natural and unrestricted movement” while playing VR games. However, it will take some time to go on sale.
