Facebook’s VR brand oculus launched quest VR all-in-one last year. Recently, it is rumored that it will be updated in September. Twitter user @ walkingcat even shared a picture of the new machine and pointed out that they would hold a new product launch on September 15. This rendering is very similar to the original pictures exposed by the reddit community.
in terms of display hardware, it has been reported that the new quest VR all-in-one machine will not have two independent display screens, but a whole large screen instead of the previous design. Of course, there is no function of adjusting the eye distance. At the same time, in order to get a more smooth experience, the quest VR all-in-one machine may also switch to LCD screen, so that the refresh rate can reach 90hz or even 120Hz.
in other aspects, the design of this operating handle is a bit like the old rift CV1, which can be felt better. The belt for adjusting the tightness often seen in head mounted VR devices has disappeared. Maybe quest has adopted a new design.
the active quest VR all-in-one machine has a long way to go in product release and sale. In August 2018, oculus finally officially released quest, which had been predicted for one year. It adopts a VR configuration of 6 DOF (degree of freedom), and can be used alone without external positioning device. It has a built-in memory of 64GB, and a 1600 x 1440 resolution screen is set in each eye. It’s priced at $399 and is expected to open in the spring of 2019.
the release speed of this new product is much longer than that of mobile phones. Usually, we can only play some old games on VR devices. After the industry is in a cold situation, VR manufacturers who are still insisting on it have to refuel.
