Unboxing Preview – Groove Jones Gets Early Hands On With Oculus Go
At Oculus Connect 4, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Oculus was working a new headset that sits in a “sweet spot” somewhere between Gear VR and Rift. Today the Groove Jones team received their early shipment of the new HMD (Head Mounted Device).
Officially called Oculus Go, this headset requires no phone and no cables running to the PC. It is a single unit that will be going on sale for $195, according to early reports. This is good news for brands and agencies that are looking for a cost effective VR headset that performs just as good or even better than a Gear VR, which can retail about $895 – $795 when you buy the headset and a phone.
- Oculus Go – Snapdragon 821 processor
- Samsung Gear VR with S7 – Snapdragon 820 processor
- Samsung Gear VR with S8 – Snapdragon 835 processor
The Oculus Go is a fully standalone “all-in-one” device.
Not only does the device come with builtin display and processor, it also comes with builtin headphones! While not as great as an over the ear headphone, these internal headphones work great and actually are handy for events and activations. We help manage and run multiple events every year and having a built in headphone means brand ambassadors spend less time onboarding guests and less time dealing with wires. Plus, one less peripheral that can go bad. So we are pleased to see this.
- Oculus Go – LCD 2560 x 1440 resolution
- Samsung Gear VR with S7 – AMOLED 2560 x 1440 resolution
- Samsung Gear VR with S8- AMOLED 2560 x 1440 resolution
