GDC News: Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 announced

As expected Oculus announced their Development Kit 2 today. More than likely it is a coincidence that Sony announced theirs yesterday as it might be a little too soon prepare for an announcement in less than 24 hours.

Along with the Headset there is also now a camera to track movement. The new dev kits will release in July and will be $350. I will be trying to get my hands on the new kit. Here are some of the specs:

  • Resolution: 960×1080 per eye
  • Refresh Rate: 75 Hz, 72 Hz, 60 Hz
  • Persistence: 2 ms, 3 ms, full
  • 100 FOV
  • HDMI 1.4b
  • Sensors: Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer
  • Update Rate: 1000 Hz
  • Sensor: Near Infrared CMOS Sensor
