Oculus Rift DK2 Virtual Reality Headset
The Oculus Rift has an OLED display with 1080×1200 pixels per eye. A 90 Hz refresh rate and a 110° field of view provides an absolutely realistic feeling. It has integrated headphones which provide a 3D audio effect, rotational and positional tracking. The positional tracking system, called “Constellation”, is performed by a USB stationary IR LED sensor, which normally sits on the user’s desk, and pinpoints the entire room with infrared and LED lights, which creates 3D space, allowing for the user to use the Rift while sitting, standing, or walking around the same room.
