We already have the “Oculus Rift” by Facebook which costs $400 and it also requires an expensive desktop computer to operate. So, it is not possible for everyone to have this VR headset. This is the reason Facebook has announced back in 2017 that it will soon release its new Cheap Virtual Reality Headset “Oculus Go”. This Headset will cost around $199 said by Mark Zuckerberg in its Oculus connect event.
“Oculus Go” is a standalone device which means it does not require any PC or smartphone to operate. This cheapest headset does not require any cables, so a user can pack it up and take it with them.
