Facebook‘s virtual reality subsidiary Oculus has just debuted its Quest 2 VR headset, equipped with a range of welcome upgrades.

Much like its predecessor, the new headset is equipped with the Oculus Insight tracking system, allowing you to immerse yourself in any VR experience without tethers or external trackers. Its processing power is greatly increased thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform optimized for higher artificial intelligence capabilities, paired 6GB of onboard RAM, but the highlight of the new device is no doubt the enhanced display, boasting 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye — 50 percent more pixels than the original Quest — making it the highest resolution display ever made by Oculus. It also supports a refresh rate of 90 Hz, making sure gameplay is smooth as silk. Rounding off the immersive experience are two Touch controllers, reimagined with better ergonomics and four times the amount of battery life as the first-gen controllers.

Elsewhere in tech, the GoPro Hero 9 has just released.
