Oculus VR unveils new headset called Crescent Bay

Shiny new prototype is new, shiny

This weekend at the Oculus Connect virtual reality conference in Los Angeles, CA, Oculus VR announced Crescent Bay, the next prototype on the path to the consumer version of the Rift.

The Crescent Bay is described as a massive leap forward compared to its predecessors. The new hardware reportedly features 360° head tracking, expanded positional tracking volume, improved weight and ergonomics, and high-quality integrated audio.

The headset is said to allow for a level of presence impossible to achieve with DK2, a statement Oculus backed up with a series of original demos available for attendees to try on the day.
