Oculus Rift's Latest Prototype Shown Off at 2014 Web Summit

VRFocus - Many have wondered what would become of the Oculus Rift's head-mounted display's (HMD) latest prototype, named Crescent Bay, since it was first revealed at the Oculus Connect developer conference in September 2014. Creator Oculus VR debuted the virtual reality (VR) kit by stating that it represented a significant stride towards the eventual consumer version of the device. Since that time the company has gone back to showing its second development kit (DK2) at industry events. That said, Crescent Bay has been exhibited once more at the Web Summit in Dublin, Ireland last week.

The story is too old to be commented.

"The kit improves upon the Oculus Rift DK2 with a higher resolution OLED display."

This article should state what the actual resolution difference is. I mean, is the Crescent Bay a game changer or a slight increase?

I'm not aware it was ever officially confirmed what resolution Crescent Bay runs at. Most likely 1440p though.

"Or, as Iribe puts it, the technological leap between the Oculus Rift DK2 headset and Crescent Bay is as great as the leap between the DK1 version of the headset and DK2."

Consumer version is supposed to be even better.
