Oculus is already working on what will be its next virtual reality device Oculus Rift, a major improvement of the new device will be to expand the field of view from 100 º of the current model to 140 º, something that will help achieve even greater immersion.
The new Oculus Rift will offer a field of view of 140°
Two pending issues in virtual reality are resolution and field of view, two aspects that are fundamental to providing the user with the best possible experience. These two aspects will be improved in the new Oculus Rift, as will the focus, as the company will introduce new technology to help the user focus their vision on what really interests them, something that will greatly improve the clarity of the image.
This new focusing system will move the screens of the new Oculus Rift depending on where the user is looking. It is an ingenious system that is simple to implement, which is important so that the manufacturing cost of the new Oculus Rift is not too high because one of the drawbacks of virtual reality is that its price is already quite high.
For now, these new Oculus Rifts are still a prototype, but no mention has yet been made of a possible date of arrival on the market. Remember that the main rival of Oculus, HTC, announced a few weeks ago the HTC Vive Pro, a device with a significant increase in resolution compared to the original model.
The new Oculus Rift will be delayed much longer, although it looks like the improvements will be much more substantial so it will be worth the wait.
