Affordable PC VR Headsets

The Oculus Rift S Boasts Five Separate and Integrated Sensors

— March 22, 2019 — Tech
Oculus announced its newest PC VR headset that is designed to bring a seamless virtual reality entertainment experience to your home. The Oculus Rift S boasts a fast-switch LCD display, an adjustable head strap, as well as a 3.5-millimeter audio jack for headphones.

One of the more exciting features of the PC VR headset, however, is the five built-in sensors that render the set-up of external sensors obsolete. As a result, the device will introduce the "capability of free-roaming, room-scale VR gaming."

The Oculus Rift S is also made available at a "relatively affordable price." Set to be made available to consumers sometime in Spring 2019, the virtual reality-enabling device will retail for $399 USD.
Trend Themes
1. Seamless Virtual Reality - The Oculus Rift S offers a seamless virtual reality entertainment experience in the comfort of one's home, opening up opportunities for immersive and interactive applications in gaming, education, and training.
2. Integrated Sensor Technology - The built-in sensors on the Oculus Rift S provide a superior tracking experience, eliminating the need for external sensors and enabling free-roaming, room-scale VR gaming. This creates potential for enhanced VR experiences in entertainment, tourism, and architecture.
3. Affordable PC VR Headsets - The affordable price point of $399 USD for the Oculus Rift S makes high-quality PC VR accessible to a wider audience, presenting opportunities in the healthcare, real estate, and retail industries for virtual simulations, remote collaboration, and product visualization.
Industry Implications
1. Gaming - The seamless virtual reality experience and room-scale capabilities of PC VR headsets like the Oculus Rift S offer disruptive innovation opportunities for immersive gaming experiences, attracting both gamers and game developers.
2. Education - Integrated sensor technology in PC VR headsets introduces new possibilities for interactive and immersive educational experiences, enabling learners to explore virtual environments, conduct experiments, and engage in virtual field trips.
3. Retail - Affordable PC VR headsets like the Oculus Rift S can revolutionize the retail industry by providing customers with virtual try-on experiences, interactive product demonstrations, and virtual storefronts, enhancing the shopping experience and increasing sales.
