The new Oculus Rift S finally kills external beacons, for only $399

At the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019 Facebook’s Oculus announced their latest VR headset, the Oculus Rift S.

The headset is a significant improvement over the previous generation, with a new high resolution 2560×1440 screen with improved optics, face slider IPD adjustment, improved ergonomics, and most importantly Inside Out Tracking, like Windows Mixed Reality headsets, meaning you now no longer need beacons and lighthouses. The headset features a full 5 cameras for as large and reliable tracking as possible.

The headset uses the same controllers as the Oculus Quest, but would not be compatible with the original Touch Controllers.

The tethered headset is launching in Spring 2019 for $399. See their launch video below.
