If you've ever bumped into objects while moving around in VR, the Oculus Rift S has a solution for you.
The flagship Oculus Rift headset is getting a bit of an upgrade, and it will be at a price most players can afford. Apart from internal sensors, the HMD has five inside-out tracking sensors to track the new Touch controllers and let users observe their surroundings without taking off the HMD. As a comparison, the display on the original Rift headset has a resolution of 1080 x 1200 per eye. And thanks to some help from Lenovo, Oculus claims the Rift S will be more comfortable as well, due to improved weight distribution, better light blocking, and a redesigned Halo headband similar to what you get on the PSVR and HP Reverb. While the displays have been updated in these two areas, the refresh rate drops from 90Hz to 80Hz, which wont make a significant difference to the overall playing experience. And while the Rift S is slightly heavier than the original Rift, the new Lenovo design is reportedly easier to wear for longer periods. The viewing angle is a little wider, but the Rift S switches to LCD instead of OLED, which should reduce the screen door effect (the Oculus Rift used a PenTile OLED, while the LCDs are RGB). Oculus Insight will also be included in the company's upcoming Quest virtual reality headset.
