Oculus Crescent Bay: Next gen VR headset immerses you in augmented reality
Oculus Rift virtual reality headset has been around for couple of years now and it has really impressed the proponents of augmented reality hardware. So much that a company like Facebook couldn’t resist to buy Oculus VR for a staggering amount. Now to step up the game even further, Oculus VR has come up with the next improved prototype version of the headset dubbed as Crescent Bay at the Oculus Connect conference in Los Angeles. The new VR headset will have an improved display, better head tracking capability and audio aesthetics for an immersive experience.
Crescent Bay prototype will have six degrees of freedom, 1k x 1k resolution per eye (projected to 960×1080 pixels), persistence of less than 3 milliseconds and 360 degree tracking ability with 20 millisecond of latency. Meaning that you’ll feel a much more reality based input while intense gaming and other virtual reality applications. There are LEDs on the back side of this headset for accurate head tracking and state-of-the-art audio unit to compliment the augmented reality experience.
Although Oculus VR has no plans to release the commercial version of this headset and it is just for the development of other immersive virtual reality gear. Those who tested the Oculus Crescent Bay prototype at Oculus Connect conference were quite impressed by this virtual reality headset.
