Oculus Rift Crescent Bay Prototype At CES

Oculus Rift Crescent Bay

Oculus Rift has created a major buzz in the sim racing community with the DK-1 and then DK-2 VR Head Mounted Displays. The Oculus Rift Crescent Bay Prototype was demoed at CES this week. Both the DK1 & DK-2 have been development kits and not meant for consumer use but consumers have their hands on them and have been playing in the virtual space for more than a year now. The consumer version, or CV-1 is rumored to come out this year and it looks like the folks at Oculus Rift are one step closer.

The Crescent Bay prototype, which is supposed to be “a massive leap” over the currently available Oculus Rift DK2.¬†Crescent Bay includes 360-degree head tracking , higher resolution, a lighter body, integrated audio (using RealSpace 3D tech), and more.

A few different outlets did some hands on videos from CES and I have them here for you to check out.

I did my own hands on about the DK2 and will be posting my video on it this evening. Based on the above articles, looks like I’ll be changing my tune about the Oculus once the CV-1 is released.

Have you tried the Rift yet and if so, what do you think ?
