Oculus Quest

Oculus's first all-in-one, standalone 6DOF VR headset with positional tracking and Touch controllers. Oculus Quest will be available in Spring 2019 starting at $399 USD for 64GB. With 50+ titles available at launch, and the best of Rift like Robo Recall, Moss, and The Climb, Oculus Quest is built for immersive gaming and represents a new class of VR experience.

Oculus Insight

Oculus Quest features Oculus Insight, our breakthrough technology that powers inside-out tracking, Guardian, and Touch controller tracking. This innovative system uses four ultra wide-angle sensors and computer vision algorithms to track your 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. And we've brought over Guardian to help keep you safer while in VR. It's easy to setup and experience whenever you want.

Vader Immortal : A Star Wars VR Series for Oculus Quest

ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm's immersive entertainment division, announced a three-part Star Wars experience titled Vader Immortal : A Star Wars VR Series. Written by David S. Goyer, the first episode launches with Oculus Quest in 2019. The series takes place between Star Wars - Episode III : Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One : A Star Wars Story, and is connected to ILMxLAB and The Void's location-based hyper-reality experience Star Wars : Secrets of the Empire.

Rift Platform

Rift Core 2.0 Exits Beta. Rift's Core 2.0 software is exiting beta, and starting to roll out to users today. The new Rift platform includes Home, a customizable space to share with friends, and Dash, a new UI that brings your VR apps and PC displays with you across VR. More personalized and powerful, Rift's updated platform also offers new developer tools and social features to more easily connect users with games and each other :

  • Expressive Oculus Avatars : Oculus Avatars form the backbone of social presence in Home and across the platform. In today's keynote, we showcased new Expressive Avatars, which feature simulated eye and mouth movement and subtle micro-expressions. The end result is a blend of behavioral science and animation that lets you feel like you're really there with others. Expressive Avatars will be available to all developers via the Avatar SDK later this year.
  • Custom Developer Items : Items from your favorite games and apps are coming to Home ! Later this year, developers will be able to create Custom Developer Items, like animated objects, sculptures, trophies, and avatar clothing. Display these new items proudly and share them with friends. The Custom Developer Item pipeline will open to all developers later this Fall.

Oculus Mobile App Now with Rift Support

Starting today, Rift users can use the Oculus mobile app to discover events, connect with friends, browse the Store, and remote install new games directly to your PC. The Oculus mobile app is available on iOS and Android.

Hybrid Apps

An entirely new way to bring 2D experiences into VR, hybrid apps allow desktop software developers to add a VR mode to enhance productivity in existing workflows without the need for a native VR app or a full software rewrite. Currently being explored with limited partners.
