So, to get there, Zuckerberg announced the Oculus Quest, a new $399 VR headset coming in the spring that's created to answer numerous complaints people have about VR technology. As we previously reported, the device will ship with Touch Controllers like the ones found on the Oculus Rift, and it features all of the necessary sensors in the headset itself, completely ditching the need for cables (aside from charging, of course). This uses a combination of four ultra-wide-angle cameras in the headset and computer vision algorithms for tracking the user's exact position in real time without the need for external sensors. At Oculus Connect 5 (OC5), the new all-in-one Oculus Quest headset debuted with the advertising copy: "This is the VR experience everyone's been waiting for".

Just like the Oculus Go, the Quest has a display resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye.

Oculus Quest will launch in Spring 2019 for $399 Dollars.

Called the Oculus Quest, this VR headset will provide six degrees of freedom and will come with Oculus Touch wireless controllers. Naturally this has been taken further to offer a "Multi-Room Guardian" which remembers the layout of rooms for quick and easy use when taking round a friends then coming back home.

Attorney General Rod Rosenstein resigns before Trump can fire him
He reportedly also whispered to Cabinet officials about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office. A new report suggests that President Trump is going to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein .

Zuckerberg said that the new Quest device represents the completion of Facebook's family of VR headsets, which includes the Rift and Go headsets. However, we aren't exactly sure what hardware is powering the Oculus Quest to accomplish this.

Right now, it's a little unclear what the future of VR looks like in the PC space.

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding Project Santa Cruz, the upcoming standalone VR HMD from the crew at Oculus. On the one hand, it's not hard to see why - I own an Oculus Rift, and setting up the system and getting it running can be tedious at best. "I'm confident we'll get there". Zuckerberg says that many PC VR games and apps will be ported to the headset.
