John Kim/CNET Oculus ignited people’s interest in virtual reality when it announced a Kickstarter for the Rift headset in 2012, promising high quality VR for $300.  Fast-forward seven years, after a more than $2 billion acquisition by Facebook and the 2016 release of the Rift, and Oculus is preparing to launch its next-generation VR headsets.  They’re called the Oculus Quest and the Rift S, and both will cost $399 (£399 in the UK; Australian pricing is TBA but the UK price converts to about AU$740). But they’re rather different headsets.  The Oculus Quest is self-contained, working without a computer to power it or any extra sensors set up around a room to track where you’re moving. The Rift S, meanwhile, offers better visuals while still connected by wire to a computer, but it also ditches sensors around a room. “Now, getting into VR is as easy as gaming on a console,” Facebook said in a statement. The new headsets come as Valve, whose Steam store and Half-Life first-person shooter series have made it a household name among gamers, prepares to release its first headset, the $499 Valve Index. And that’s not including other competitors, such as Sony’s $299 PlayStation VR, HTC’s Vive and headsets from Lenovo, HP and Samsung that’re powered by Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality technology. 58-oculus-questEnlarge ImageThe Quest is a wireless self-contained headset, offering a middle ground between the low-power Oculus Go and high-power Rift S. Sarah Tew/CNET The Quest is a new device Whereas the Rift and Rift S rely on an outside computer connected by a wire to power the virtual world you see, and the $199 Oculus Go is designed to be a wire-free self-contained entry-level VR device, the Oculus Quest is meant to be somewhere in the middle.  At its heart, the Quest is meant to offer higher-end games designed to work with the Oculus hand controllers, like the music rhythm game Beat Saber and the boxing game Creed: Rise to Glory. But it’s also self-contained, running a powerful, yet small, computer in the headset. To pull off that trick, developers say, the Oculus Quest isn’t as capable as its beefier cousin, the Rift S. Its screen doesn’t show as many details, it’s not able to pack as many characters on the screen at a time, and apps made for it can’t assume they’ll always be connected to the internet. (Sometimes people might take this on a train or on vacation). The Quest still uses the same controllers as the Rift S Though the Quest and Rift S won’t always be able to play the same games, the Quest will have the same controllers. That’s a step up from the entry-level Oculus Go, which had a simpler, wandlike controller that wasn’t capable of doing as much as the more full-fledged hand controllers Oculus offers. Oculus Quest is fully mobile VR They’re both $399, go on preorder Tuesday and ship May 21 If you’re already convinced, you can preorder the devices on the Oculus website, at Amazon and elsewhere.

A recent survey from industry tracker IDC, which was sponsored by Sony, found that headset sales in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan rose 60% in 2018 to 3.9 million headsets, up from 2.4 million in 2017. But that’s still small compared with the hundreds of millions of video game consoles Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have sold since 2013. Here’s everything to know about the Quest and Rift S so far. The Rift S is a refinement  Oculus says the Rift S will offer more-detailed and sharper-looking visuals than the original Oculus Rift, which shipped in 2016. But the real change is to the cameras mounted on its sides. There are two in the front, one on each side, and one on the top, all designed to track the outside world using a technology called “Oculus Insight,” so that the headset knows when you’re leaning one direction or another or suddenly duck to avoid something. Those cameras work in concert with the company’s hand controllers too. See it CNET Review Oculus Quest The standalone VR headset earns our Editors’ Choice.

first_imgBollywood actors added a dash of glamour to a chilly afternoon in Delhi as an award-winning short film based on the theme of empowerment of victims of rape and molestation – ‘Ab Mujhe Udnaa Hai – Let me Soar High’ – was screened for a select audience amid rave reviews.Directed by Suujoy J Mukerji, son of legendary actor Late Joy Mukerji, the film is based on a story written by Delhi-based noted advocate-writer-actor Sunil Kapoor. Kapoor’s collection of 61 poems ‘Punam ka Chaand’ was also released at the event that also saw Joy Mukerji’s wife, Neelam, unveil a CD ‘Mein Pyar Ka Rahi Hun’, carrying songs of her superstar husband.

He told his fans not to mob him or treat him differently,” she said. Apart from the presence of the Mukerji family, that owns the iconic Filmalaya studio in Mumbai, actors like Shakti Kapoor, Kanwaljit Singh, actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari (Delhi Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party President) and the short film’s lead actress Jasmine Grover also attended the event at USI Residency in the Delhi Cantonment.

Sunil Kapoor and environmentalist Suresh Raheja sang popular Mohd Rafi, Kishore and Mukesh melodies of the 1960s and 70s at the event. “As the nation remembers Nirbhaya on her sixth death anniversary, it is time to help victims of sexual assaults and molestation and their families to emerge from trauma without stigmatization,” said Suujoy. The film features veteran actor Kanwaljit Singh who won the jury award for best actor at the Mumbai Film Festival. He won the award for essaying the role of a college professor and the molested girl’s father who believes in keeping pace with the changing times and encourages daughter to fulfill her dreams and potential. Mahaakshay, son of noted actor Mithun Chakraborty, has acted as the molested girl’s dance instructor; he motivated her to come out of depression and follow her passion to become a dancer. The short film’s story and screenplay have been written by Sunil Kapoor, a noted income-tax advocate from Delhi, who has also acted in a forthcoming film ‘The Tiger Trail’. Four stories from Kapoor’s bestselling book ‘A Peacock Feather’ have been picked by Bollywood producers for making feature films. He has authored this book with his twin chartered accountant brother Sudhir. The short film’s awards include the best film award at the UK’s Red Wood Film Festival, Top Shorts, Los Angeles, and Calcutta International Cult Film Festival, sensitively handles the complex issue of stigmatization of the victims of sexual offences and seeks to educate and empower society to make the nation a safe place for daughters.last_img read more
