Back in 2014, Facebook bought the start-up virtual reality company Oculus VR for $2 billion USD, and next year they plan to deliver the first standalone device. Called Oculus Go, Mark Zuckerberg says it’s ”the most accessible VR headset ever.”

The wireless headset does not utilize a smartphone as its display and instead features a fully-functional computer inside of it. Facebook says the headset is “super lightweight,” comes with a high-res-switch LCD screen and spatial audio via a built-in headset. Oculus Go costs $199 USD, slightly more expensive than the Samsung Gear VR ($129 USD), but much cheaper than the Oculus Rift currently at $399 USD.
