New Oculus Rift dev Kit with OLED display

20 Mar 2014 | Rasmus Larsen |

Oculus has announced its second developer version of the VR headset. The new Oculus Rift DK2 will be available to buy from July 2014. It uses an OLED display with Full HD resolution.

Second Oculus Rift dev kit

Oculus has risen to fame very quickly and is already admired in the business despite having no real products available to buy. They have even recruited a legend. However, it seems that we have to wait a bit longer for the real consumer product, as Oculus has just announced a new dev kit.

The Oculus Rift DK2 (Development Kit 2) will see a bump in resolution to 1920x1080 pixels (960x1080 per eye) and it now uses an OLED display with very fast response time (or low persistence). Head tracking has been markedly improved and it is now possible to lean forward over edges inside the virtual world. The DK2 also increases the frame rate to 75 Hz from the previous 60 Hz. The field-of-view is now 100 degrees.




The new version demonstrates that Oculus has come a long way since its inception, but it also indicates that Oculus probably needs more time before they are ready to ship a commercial product. The new dev kit looks almost identical the Crystal Cove prototype tgat Oculus showcased at CES 2014. Oculus has also talked about moving to a 4K display for the final product, and Palmer Luckey says that the final product will be very different from the DK2.

Still, Oculus refuses to talk about a possible launch date, but you can pre-order DK2 for $350 here. It will ship in July. Also, read our review of the Oculus Rift DK1 here.

Sony has just announced a competitor to the Oculus Rift under the code name Project Morpheus.
