Oculus Rift DK2


Oculus Rift DK2 is the newest development kit for Rift, that tweaks the original’s design, yet significantly increases its performance, display, and motion tracking with even higher resolution, lower latency, and a separate camera that is included in the package. It is a pretty impressive upgrade, costing only fifty bucks more than the previous model, but showing a lot more potential. DK2 actually looks sleeker and more streamlined than the original one, with its slightly curved design. It is only about an inch wider and deeper compared to its predecessor, and weighs just 14.7-ounces. The power adapter is not required in order to charge the headset, since it receives enough electricity from the USB connection. Moreover, it powers up your accessories, instead of using more USB ports. It has a sleek Power button, and a single power light to the right of where you connect the cables to the display. All you have to do, is just simply plug the USB and HDMI connectors in, and you are good to go. It is equipped with internal motion sensors that handle head-tracking. The motion-tracking camera needs an extra USB connection to the source, and also a 3.5-mm connection to the in-line connector on the headset cable. The camera is pretty fine, coming with a stand that is attachable to monitors and laptops, as well as tripod mounts. The abovementioned camera is equipped with mini USB and 3.5mm ports. Oculus Rift DK2 features 1080p OLED screen, which delivers a superb quality. It uses a single display to create a picture, and splits it up with lenses for each eye. The display has a promising 960x1080-pixel quality for each eye, resulting in a very sharp picture. Its screen also delivers lower persistence than the original’s LCD, which results in reduced motion blur, which will eliminate the users getting sick and disoriented. Oculus Rift DK2 fits extremely well on your head, and the picture looks crisp. However, if you are wearing glasses, you will have to take them off, and use lenses in turn. The cable runs over the back of your head, which is a thing to have in mind to improve for manufacturers while coming up with a next version of it, because it might slide off your head and touch your shoulder or back, and it might feel awkward. It is easily notable when you are sitting in a chair, that pushes the cable against you if you do not place it over your shoulder. If you are looking for a decent quality virtual reality headset, be sure that you have found one. It has a huge library of Rift games, so you will never get bored with it. The improvements are even more promising, that are yet to come in the next version. Oculus have made significant improvements over the last couple of years, and people claim that they created a piece of art, that is ready to excite you after the first use. You are recommended to buy this product, even though it is a development kit, and is yet to be improved in the near future.
