The device is essentially a Gear VR without the smartphone, there’s no other hardware needed to get started. Everything you need is already built into the headset. It tracks head rotation, but not full motion, and it uses a remote control with limited pointing abilities.

Its content library consists of the same games and apps as Gear and the two are binary compatible, meaning any developer working on Gear content can release on Go too.

The hardware looks like a slimmed down version of the PC-based Oculus headset. The Oculus Go will not use an OLED panel like many VR headsets. Instead, it has a 2560x1440 fast-switch LCD.
