Oculus unveiled at GDC the Oculus Rift S, its new VR headset co-designed with Lenovo. The device works with compatible PCs and is built on the Rift platform. The headset comes with improved optics and display technology that provide end-users with a sharper picture with higher pixel density for an even more immersive gaming experience. It also has a new true stereo-correct passthrough feature, Passthrough+. Like Quest, Rift S features Oculus Insight, Oculus' inside-out tracking technology. Rift S will become available in stores this spring for USD 399.
