He also stated that it combines "the key attributes of the ideal VR system", meaning wireless design, virtual hand controllers, and full positional tracking.

This Insight technology relies on four ultra wide-angle sensors to track your position using computer vision algorithms and supports Guardian, to keep you safe while wearing the headset.

Though Zuckerberg notes that they were considering creating new controllers for the Quest, feedback from VR users led the company to instead bundle the new headset with the Oculus Touch controllers.

While some call virtual reality the future of gaming, computing, and so much more, the only way to get the most premium experience is by having the VR headset wired to a computer. With that said, we do know that the Quest will feature a new display that is capable of displaying a resolution of 1600x1440 per eye, which is considerably higher than the Go's resolution of 1280x1440 per eye.

If Quest can offer a similar lineup of applications and games as Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, it would be the most affordable and accessible headset on market.

This new feature can be accessed from the YouTube VR App by clicking on "watch together" icon which is beneath the play controls from your daydream view or your gear view. Titles that will be available include the popular Rift games like Robo Recall, The Climb, and Moss. Build-in audio has been improved too, and Oculus is promising "high-quality, immersive sound with even deeper bass".

Oculus has also announced that Oculus Go owners will be able to view National Basketball Association games via Oculus Venues.

The Quest's visuals will be on par with the Rift headset, but will not require tracking sensors that people must set up in their homes to capture their movements. We'll believe it when we see it. Rift games won't be automatically coming to Oculus, but supposedly porting Quest games to Rift will be as simple as a one-touch button press, with no need for ports or other optimization.
