The device packs plenty of power for a standalone system, making full use of its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip set, and is more than capable of running popular VR titles previously only available on wired headsets flawlessly and with high resolution graphics. You get a choice of either 64GB or 128GB of storage space and for sound, there’s positional audio equipment built in, so it can be used without headphones.
It comes equipped with a pair of Touch controllers with designed to deliver ‘hand presence’ – the sensation that the hands you see in the virtual world are fully in tune with your own. With tracking strips placed above the hands – rather than below, like on the Rift – movements are more easily picked up by the head-mounted cameras, leading to high levels of accuracy.
This is the first VR headset that allows users to stream what they are viewing to another device, such as a smartphone or TV, through its innovative ‘casting’ feature. With the Quest, it is now easier to share VR experiences with others than ever before.
Oculus products are known for being among the most comfortable on the market, and the Quest is no different with it three snugly-fitting head straps. Despite being heavier that than both the Go and the Rift, this new addition to the brand’s line-up can be played for long periods without becoming cumbersome. A battery life of two to three hours also helps prevent any unwanted charging interruptions.
This user-friendly device is perfect for people seeking a simple VR experience, customers that are less confident with tech, or those who have portability as one of their main virtual reality hire needs.
Oculus Quest was released in May 2019 on the same day as the company’s other new headset, Rift S, with more than 50 launch titles to choose from.
