VR: Oculus Announces New Standalone Headset & 3D Objects in Facebook News Feed
From Facebook Newsroom:
Today at its fourth developer conference in San Jose, Oculus announced its newest and most affordable VR headset, called Oculus Go. The standalone device will ship in early 2018 starting at $199.
- We introduced a new native 3D media type in Facebook News Feed. You can now post 3D objects from Oculus Medium and marker drawings from Spaces directly to Facebook as fully interactive 3D objects. Your friends can engage with your creations from their desktops and mobile phones. You can even bring 3D objects from News Feed into Spaces, so you can continue the fun in VR. Soon, we’ll open up support for even more VR content types, so stay tuned for future updates.
- Live 360° Video Later this year, you’ll be able to stream full 360° video directly in Spaces in real time. Share cultural moments and explore the library of Facebook Live 360° content together with friends.
