Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement about the upcoming VR headset on Wednesday. Moreover, it doesn't need any expensive, powerful pc like its elder cousin the Oculus Rift PC to function as its a standalone VR headset, with nothing extra wires, graphics attachments are required here.

The stand-alone headset doesn't require plugging in a smartphone or a cord tethering it to a personal computer like other VR, or virtual reality, headsets. The social media giant recently launched a bundled VR package that includes an Oculus Rift headset, 3 room sensors for tracking motion and two controllers.

Since it bought Oculus VR in 2014, FB stock hasn't seen many positives from the acquisition.

Facebook has unveiled a new VR system called Oculus Go, which is set to be released early next year.

Facebook vice president for VR Hugo Barra said it is "the easiest way for developers to get involved with VR". Expected to ship early next year, it will be priced at $199 (approx Rs 13,000).

The Oculus Go is Oculus' phone-free vision of the future: a US$200 headset with a "fast-switch LCD" screen and 2560 x 1440 resolution. Here, we present the latest news and everything you need to know about the Oculus Go, including release date rumours, United Kingdom pricing, design and features. However, this isn't any new platform because this is based on Samsung's Gear VR. That naturally leads to more mobility and freedom while allowing users to soak into the content with all the liberty that they can dream of. Spatial audio is built directly into the headset with the hopes of providing an immersive experience as you move around without the need for separate headphones.

Facebook has not yet revealed the technical specifications of theOculus Gb, but promises an enhanced visual experience (reflections reduced, wider angle of view) and a greater comfort for the wearer, which passes by the use of the best materials for the manufacture of the helmet and especially by a reduced body weight.

Meanwhile, Facebook is also planning to convince the corporate world to jump into VR by introducing a new way through which companies can take advantage of this technology.
