Last year, Facebook announced that Oculus was working on a higher-fidelity experience that would let the Rift headset be untethered from the PC. The display is a fast-switch LCD screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, and it comes with integrated headphones.

Oculus Go is intended for those that do not have a Samsung smartphone. The auto company is using Oculus for Business to build VR showrooms to allow customers to walk around the place and configure the vehicle themselves before they make the purchasing decision.
