Hands-on with Oculus Quest (video by Tested)

One of the biggest announcements at Oculus Connect 5 was the Oculus Quest, the new 6DOF standalone VR headset with two motion controllers, which will be released Spring of 2019 for just $399.  Here is a hands-on report on Oculus Quest by Tested!

I thought it looked very fun.  Just as I thought, the graphics aren’t spectacular — that’s because the headset is running only on a mobile processor.  So it looks like around the same level of graphics as Lenovo Mirage.

But the wireless 6DOF experience makes it a lot of fun, as do the fully tracked twin motion controllers (the Mirage has only one motion controller, and the tracking is much more primitive — similar to a Nintendo Wiimote).

Meanwhile I’m working on the next video, which I plan to post tomorrow — it will be fun and informative!

  • It’s interesting to see the new developments with 6DOF. But isn’t this all mainly for gaming ?

    I always prefer to sit down when looking through a headset as I know if I start walking around I’ll invariably bump into things.

    Anyhow, the only 6DOF camera around so far looks like it costs about a million dollars…
