To view your favorite movie or play your choice video games in VR without spending a ton on a VR headset, opt for the Oculus Go. The premium Oculus VR models are beyond the reach of most VR aficionados and enthusiasts. Luckily for such VR buffs, the Oculus Go comes pretty cheap in stark contrast to the high-end models like Rift, Rift S, and Quest.
Though the Oculus Go offers you a unique VR experience while viewing a movie or playing video games, it has some serious limitations. For a start, it does not sit comfortably on your face and light filters in from underneath. Additionally, Go’s battery life is poor; it’s not compatible with Bluetooth headphones, has low storage space, and is delicate.
These drawbacks can come in the way of your making most out of your VR apps. However, you can get around these limitations by using some accessories that get with the Oculus Go. You do not need a PC or a smartphone or power cables for operating it, thanks to the Oculus Go’s headset being thoroughly autonomous.
Check out the following accessories for making the most of your Oculus Go.
