The folks at Oculus VR have had a busy year. Their hard work culminates in an amazing bit of technology, the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2. Features include:
- Accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer with an update rate of 1,000 Hz
- Positional tracking via external camera with near-infrared CMOS sensor
- Low-persistence 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 960 x 1,080 per eye
- Built-In latency tester
- 100 degree field of view (a much discussed change from DK1)
All well and good, but DK1 ran away with an impressive 9/10 repairability score when it hit our teardown table in the Spring of 2013. Here's hoping that score holds as the Rift evolves to its newest incarnation. Let's see what's what!
