The Oculus Go standalone virtual reality headset has finally reached the first developers. According to the retail box, the Oculus Go comes with “1,000+ apps, games and movies” including Netflix, The New York Times, Hulu, Jurassic World, Discovery, Fox Sports VR, and Facebook.

The box says it to feature 32GB storage space, but the possibility of multiple storage variations being released can’t be ignored as well.

Oculus Go Retail BoxThe device was announced at the Oculus Connect, back in last October. Equipped with its own processor & display, it’s been captioned “hands-down the easiest way to get into VR” by Oculus. The display is of fast-switch LCD type & boasts a massive 2560 x 1440 resolution. It contains brand new lenses too. The built-in spatial audio makes sure that you don’t need any additional headphones. Cameras have been installed on the front of the headset by using computer vision tech. It’s expected to help with positional tracking. The usage of mesh fabric and an elastic strap make the device look quite distinguishable.

It is expected to be available to the masses by the “early 2018” though no specific date has officially been announced. The Oculus Go will compete with the Rift headset and the Samsung Gear VR, once it reaches the market.

Oculus is also working on a high-end prototype VR codenamed as Santa Cruz. It won’t require any sort of PC support to operate. Santa Cruz features inside out tracking as well. It arrives with the first developers by the end of 2018.
