Virtual Reality


Oculus Quest 2 VR Facebook
The virtual Facebook Connect livestream is set to air live on Wednesday, September 16th, but the company’s upcoming Oculus Quest 2 VR headset has leaked ahead of that event. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 platform, an almost 4K display that offers 50 percent more pixels than its predecessor, 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, 3D positional audio, and controller-free hand tracking.

Apple NextVR
Apple is set to acquire VirtualVR, a virtual reality video streaming service, for $100-million. NextVR has over a decade of experience in broadcasting live events in virtual reality to various headsets, thus revolutionizing the way fans watch sports as well as entertainment. What may have caught Apple’s eyes are its patents to video upscaling technology used in high quality streaming to headsets.
