Oculus has released its new virtual reality (VR) headset, the Rift S, at GDC 2019 in San Francisco.
The Oculus Rift S—billed as a VR headset that combines the convenience of built-in Oculus Insight tracking technology with the full power of a PC—is launching soon, with a price tag of $399.
It’s compatible with the Rift platform and boasts improved optics and display technology that deliver a sharper picture with higher pixel density, according to Oculus.
Oculus has also partnered with Lenovo to design the new headset, which the Facebook-owned VR company says delivers increased comfort, better weight distribution and improved light blocking, as well as a simple, single-cable system for a clutter-free experience.
The headset features the same integrated audio system as Oculus Quest and Go, with a headphone jack allowing users to bring their own headphones to the experience.
The new headset includes Oculus Insight for inside-out tracking, which enables it to capture, trace and navigate physical spaces in real time.
