Product information

The Oculus Go is an all-in-one virtual reality glass that is extremely suitable for presentations at trade shows and events. The Oculus Go is very comfortable with a relatively low purchase price, making it the most popular all-in-one VR headset at the moment.

 

The Oculus Go works in combination with the Oculus platform, giving you immediate access to a large amount of content. A disadvantage of the Oculus Go is that you need a smartphone to configure it. Furthermore, the Oculus Go must always be used in combination with the controller.

Oculus Go

Oculus Go in short

The Oculus Go is the second VR glasses from Oculus VR and was launched in 2018. It is a standalone headset, no PC or laptop is needed to control the system. The operation is via the supplied VR controller, which can register movement in addition to buttons. The Oculus App Store has 1000+ titles. This system stems from the collaboration with Samsung, the software is almost identical to the Samsung Gear VR glasses. This time, no smartphone is required, all hardware is built-in. The system was designed by Oculus VR and is being built by Mii, who sells the same headset with a local App Store in China under their own brand name.

About Oculus

Oculus VR was founded in 2012 and has been part of the Facebook concern since 2014. The Oculus VR DK1 is the first “modern” VR headset that started as a Kickstarter campaign. After the launch of the Rift in 2016, the Go followed in 2018. In May 2019, their third VR glasses came out; the Quest.

What makes the Oculus Go special?

 

  • Standalone VR headset: The Go is one of the first VR headsets that works completely self-sufficient. No PC or laptop is required as is the case with the more luxurious Rift, nor is a smartphone required as with the Google Cardboard or Gear VR.

  • Little space needed: The 3DoF system limits the user to one fixed position. Free walking is not possible, which makes the system suitable for sitting or standing applications. This can be advantageous in locations with limited freedom of movement.

  • VR controller: The controller cannot detect depth, but movement across all axes is recorded. This increases the user experience and makes highly interactive applications possible.

  • Sharp image: With a 2560 x 1440 image resolution, the Oculus Go screen is among the best in its class. Video is razor sharp if the source is of good quality. The case can be used with the most spectacle frames.

  • Wide range of apps: With 1000+ titles, the Go offers something for everyone. Most titles are also available for the Gear VR, but only the Go has support for 72 Hz images, which can significantly reduce nausea in some users.

  • Android operating system: The interface is a “shell” over a standard Android OS. This simplifies the development of customized applications and offers space to developers for extra possibilities.

  • Competitively priced: Facebook does not get rich from this product, the purchase price barely covers the costs for hardware and system development. This VR Glasses is “priced to sell”.

 

Restrictions to take into account

Put simply, this headset is equipped with smartphone technology, which limits the graphic quality. With video you don’t notice this, with games there is a difference with the VR headsets for PC. The movement registration is limited to three axes, so you cannot move in space. With sitting or standing experiences, that is not really a substantial limitation, with apps where the user has to move physically, 3DoF offers a less convincing effect. The battery lasts between two and three hours, but it is possible to connect the device to the mains with a USB cable. For heavy users, the maximum memory of 64 GB can be an obstacle. It is not possible to expand the memory.

 

VR for business use

Between the 1000+ apps there are plenty of titles that can be used for business purposes. The educational titles in particular are sometimes very impressive to see. For 360 degree video the standard gallery can be used, or the free YouTube app. It is of course possible to develop custom titles that are published via the App Store. Because the Go works on the basis of the Android operating system, it is possible to install your own applications via sideloading. It is also possible to use the glasses in “kiosk” mode with which the standard interactive functions are limited, which makes the device suitable for the exhibition floor. The limited movement (3DoF) in combination with a wireless design makes the Oculus Go a good choice for business applications.

Conclusion

The Oculus Go is the second product of Oculus VR, and was counted on a large number of positive reactions from the press and users. The App Store is richly filled, the wireless system is very user-friendly and the image quality is at a very high level. In combination with a competitive price, this is an interesting Virtual Reality pair of glasses that is particularly suitable for 360 video. If you really need 6DoF spatial VR, these glasses are too limited, for casual use and business applications this is rightly a popular product.
