Facebook VR – Oculus Go

Facebook on 11th October 2017 announced Oculus Go, a standalone headset that doesn’t require a PC or a phone to get you into VR, at the company’s Oculus Connect developer conference.

It’s coming in early 2018 for $199, or roughly £150 or AU$255 converted.

“We want to get a billion people in virtual reality,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, shortly before the reveal.

Oculus exec Nate Mitchell suggests we’re on the right track there “We can make the experience even better than anything you’ve seen on Gear VR today because it’s fully integrated, so we’ll be able to do a lot more [with Oculus Go],” he tells CNET.

It also sounds like Oculus Go won’t be Facebook’s only standalone VR headset. Last year, Facebook announced it was exploring the space with its Santa Cruz standalone VR headset, and it turns out that device is still on track: the totally wireless, base-station-free headset, which now has revamped controllers, was shown again in the conference.

How It Works

You’re falling and the world is whipping before you. You’re petrified. But you also feel alive. The second right before you hit the ground is the worst – your brain is actually prepared for the moment by dumping adrenaline into your system as a mild painkiller.

But while all this is happening, you haven’t actually moved. You’ve been sitting in a chair in your own home, staring into a screen. Your biometrics have changed, but, geographically speaking, you’re exactly where you were 10 minutes ago.

This is what it’s like to use virtual reality, to get the experience of being somewhere else in a different time, a different place, sometimes as far as an alien world, all without ever leaving your home.

This is what it’s like to use virtual reality, to get the experience of being somewhere else in a different time, a different place, sometimes as far as an alien world, all without ever leaving your home.

Like other virtual reality headsets, the Oculus RIft has the arduous task of completely immersing you in a video game by producing two images simultaneously. It does this by hooking into the back of your graphics card’s HDMI port and using a camera to track your head movement. You can either sit or stand while wearing the headset, whichever you find more comfortable. But, unlike the HTC Vive, you won’t be able to use the hardware inside the box to actually walk around at all (what we commonly refer to as “room-scale VR”).

What you’ll get inside every Oculus Rift box, however, is the headset itself, the Oculus Sensor, a small Oculus Remote that can be used to control videos and change the volume on the headset, a Xbox One Wireless Controller with 2 AA batteries, an Xbox One controller adapter and extender and Lucky’s Tale, a platforming game that is best compared to a 360-degree version of Super Mario Bros. If you pre-ordered the Rift, it also came with EVE: Valkyrie Founder’s Pack.

What you’ll find when you’re done is a library of about 100 titles that are longer than anything found on the HTC Vive. I’ve played a good deal of them, and while some were better than others, there weren’t any that I felt were a waste of time or money.

4 Most Popular Ways To Get Your Startup Raise Fund

startup funding

A start up is a dream actualized into reality with sincere efforts and valuable resources. One may have great ideas and strategies but lack the capital needed to make them happen. Of course, that doesn’t mean you will drop your entrepreneurial goals altogether. What you need is the necessary funding so you can take your business endeavours to the next level. It is widely believed that funding can be an overwhelming experience but acquiring capital for a business has become easier with times.

To help you gain useful insight on the entire funding process, we’ve brought you 4 ways to raise capital so that you can turn your ideas into real products for the market:

1. Loan

A loan is probably the first option that must have come across your mind and therefore we have also put it on the top of our list. You can consider getting loans in two ways:

i. Family and Friends

Convincing people known to you is easier amongst all of the options. You can borrow from your family and friends who support your business goals and have the required resources. This can be great because there is no series of formal paperwork to be done while getting funded.

Since these people have known you for a long time, you don’t have to pull strings to earn their trust regarding the money they lend you. Borrowing from your relatives or friends might be easier but money is usually a critical subject for relationships. So bear this mind whenever you are getting loans from your loved ones.

ii. Small Business Loans

There are Small Business Associations in most cities that can aid your startup for a loan at a fixed interest rate.  A bank gives clear conditions of payment requirements and interest rates related to a loan. In addition to this, banks usually provide useful resources for information, mentorship and networking to help your start up. However, acquiring loans from a bank require a lot of paperwork and proof of profitability of a business.  They would require you to show how you will utilise the capital provided from their bank. Make sure, you have a proper strategy and reliable ways to put the acquired money for optimum usage.

2. Angel Investors

Angel Investor is a person, usually an experienced market professional, who is interested in funding new and authentic business ventures. The investment from these ‘funding Angels’ is carried out for a profitable ROI on their capital provision to a business.  Usually, they fund a start up with an exchange for a percentage of equity in the company.

Not only as investors, these individuals could be a great addition to your team because they come with a lot of experience and business networks. They can also serve as your mentors in your team as they financially contribute to the business. Angels understand the probability of risk and failure in a business venture, but they expect higher efficiency on the part of your efforts to make it profitable.  So make sure, you work best to deliver what you promised in the beginning of your collaboration with an investor.

3. Venture Capitalists

Venture Capitalists are generally a group of professional investors who look for most profitable business ideas and ventures which can potentially generate large ROI for them. All you need is to pitch your start up perfectly in front of these VCs to gain valuable funds for your business plans.  

VCs come with well-established connections and networking background so you can have them as your industry mentors to sharpen your own entrepreneurial skills.

In exchange for their investment and time on your start up, you would have to give up a certain percentage of equity of your company.  Besides all of this, Venture Capitalist seek active engagement in a company’s decision making processes since they are expecting something relevant from their provided capital.

4. Crowd Funding

Crowdfunding is a practice of acquiring funds by directly approaching your customers while raising awareness about your services. These days Crowd funding ventures are run through social media and crowdfunding websites to garner the attention of investors and entrepreneurs. Sometimes, entrepreneurs use crowd funding before pitching their business plans to venture capitalists, Angel investors or even banks while aiming at a larger capital amount.

This mode of funding allows reaching out to the audience and have honest opinions about your products. It also gives you great opportunities to directly connect with potential investors who might be interested in your start-up venture.  But you have to be aware of the fact that Crowd funding takes time and effort. So, you should always be ready with a plan, an outreaching strategy and patience.

We hope these 4 ways of raising money will help you in accumulating capital to get your business thriving in the market.
