Oculus Builds VR Headset

Facebook’s VR arm, Oculus, is joining forces with Chinese device maker Xiaomi to build a standalone VR headset that will be targeted exclusively towards the Chinese market. The device, Mi VR Standalone, is an all-in-one headset. It does not need to be connected to a computer or paired with a smartphone to power the VR experience. This type of technology makes the VR experience far more accessible for the average consumer as it does not require specific hardware. Oculus hopes that Xiaomi’s excellent brand reputation will help the product take off and become a big hit in China.
