Unlike its predecessors, the Oculus Quest is a stand-alone virtual reality headset that uses motion controllers similar to the Rift’s Oculus Touch and features displays with resolution of 1600 x 1440 per eye with an option to adjust the lens spacing. The headset is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile chip, thus making it possible to move around without restrictions. It officially launches on May 21, priced at $399 USD.

“If VR is finally live up to its mainstream hopes, the Quest is going to be a key part of that transformation—assuming a hype-weary world is willing to give it a shot.

Just this past week, I literally tossed it in a carry-on suitcase on a recent visit to family,” said Forbes contributor Seth Porges.
