The first Oculus Connect conference was held late last week. There, Oculus VR unveiled its latest prototype VR headset, code-named Crescent Bay.
Crescent Bay, Oculus says, includes "new display technology, 360° head tracking, expanded positional tracking volume, dramatically improved weight and ergonomics, and high-quality integrated audio." The headset enables a "level of presence" that's said to be "impossible to achieve" with the previous-gen DK2 prototype.
The PC World guys were at the show, and they were moved to expletives by the new prototype. Paraphrasing Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, the site says Crescent Bay represents as big a step up from DK2 as DK2 did from the first-gen DK1 prototype.
Sadly, unlike the DK2, Crescent Bay apparently won't be available to order via the Oculus VR website. According to PC World, the new headset is an "internal prototype"—much like the Crystal Cove headset we sampled at CES earlier this year.
