Oculus Rift Review
Smartphones are passé; virtual reality is the new reality we are being slowly introduced to. Till a few years back virtual reality was something we never thought will be accessible to us; it was limited to science fiction movies and books. The market of virtual reality is expanding and the all new Oculus Rift prove just that.
The Oculus Rift has enough elements in it to become the next big thing in the world of virtual reality. The built-up of the rift is strong and can be easily organized. The item is carefully packed in the amusing soft rubberized carrying case. It has one of the most advanced software which is fully compatible with third-parties like SteamVR. One of the attractive parts of the rift is its headset- it is simple and is adequately adjusted to suit all the functions.
The rectangular visor with rounded edges fit perfectly on your ears. The Oculus logo id marked on the front flat panel, so that you don’t doubt about the product’s authenticity. The sides are flat and are carefully connected to the arms of the visor. The three-strap, two on the sides and one on the top harnesses are carefully attached to the arms which helps the device to fit on your head. The sides are covered in coarse cloth and the lenses are coated by a net of lycra. The rift weighs just 0.8 pounds and is super light.
The OLED display of the lenses are 1200/1800 pixels at 90Hz. They are integrated by gyroscope and accelerometer. The headset has an in-built IR sensor for head tracking at a 360 degree angle. You also get a built-in microphone. It works smoothly with the Oculus and StreamVR platforms. The main cable which is leading from the headset tears up into USB 3.0 and HDMI cables.
Although built with advanced technology, there are some drawbacks which we can’t ignore. It is expensive, without any doubt. There areno motion control or whole-room VR embedded in it. But inspite of that, it delivers a world class virtual experience which we cannot overlook.
