Meta has renamed the Quest's operating system to Meta Horizon OS and they are opening it up to third party VR headset makers.

Starting off they are partnering with Asus to make a Republic of Gamers performance VR headset, with Lenovo (who helped design and build the Rift-S) to make an entertainment/education/productivity mixed reality headset and with Microsoft to make a limited edition Xbox inspired Quest.

 

It would be nice if the Asus one had more of a PCVR focus than the Quests, having actual display port instead of Link.

Everything mentioned here looks really cool and interesting! I can't wait to see what devices come out of these partnerships and what their capabilities are.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The force shall free me.

It's interesting that Asus and Lenovo are getting back into VR after Windows Mixed Reality (forced to use MS' poorly designed software that was almost unsupported).

This was a super exciting and unexpected announcement but having now thought about it more, it makes sense.

Could we ever have the perfect all-in-one that is suitable for all activities?  I don't think so, so having separate headsets/glasses might just be the solution.

Big PC, all the headsets, now using Quest 3

Yeah, sounds like a good move, the non pro Quests probably come as close to pleasing everyone as any headset could, a few of the PCVR-only brigade don’t like it so maybe they’ll have something else to appreciate.

Edit: Although, if it’s Meta’s OS, that probably means we’re just talking about stand-alone or dual mode headsets here.

The Pimax Crystal Light looks promising but their history of delivering on promotional promises isn’t the best. The Rift-S is still the master of comfort so I’ll definitely be taking a close look at what Lenovo come out with.
