the most advanced virtual reality headsets are available for sale

The company Meta relies heavily on virtual reality. The proof is with its new headset, the Oculus Meta Quest Pro, which is one of the most complete you can find today. It is now available for sale at Boulanger.

It was in early October that Meta (formerly Facebook) unveiled and released the Oculus Meta Quest Pro, a hormone-enhanced version of its popular virtual reality headset. A technically very impressive product, obviously designed to roam around different “metaverses”, but also to play the latest video games of the moment.

It must be said that the Pro qualifier attached to his name is not stolen. This new iteration is really tweaking the excellent Meta Quest 2 formula to deliver a virtual reality experience like we rarely see. From there to make it one of the best all-purpose VR headsets on the market?

Design and datasheet: significant improvements compared to Oculus Meta Quest 2

With the Oculus Meta Quest 2, Meta had taken a stab at the small world of virtual reality headsets. It must be said that this device (whose quality we praised), still offers today one of the best experiences in this field, at an extremely attractive price.

It is on this strong foundation that Meta has built the new VR headset. Be it in terms of design, comfort, functionality or technical data sheet, Meta Quest Pro surpasses its predecessor to deliver what is close to the ultimate VR experience. You only have to look at the helmet’s specs to discover that Meta has spared no expense.

At the display level, the Oculus Meta Quest Pro can rely on two IPS LCD screens at 1800 by 1920 pixels, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz to ensure the fluidity of content transmission. The overall screen quality has also been improved to deliver a sharp and accurate image. It’s all powered by a Snapdragon XR2-Plus that does wonders for VR and mixed reality. A storage space of 256 GB and 12 GB of RAM complete this strong spec sheet.

To accompany this technical improvement, Meta has also extensively reworked the design of its helmet for more comfort, including if you wear glasses. We especially welcome the ability to adjust the lens spacing on the helmet to match the user’s eye spacing. Another important point, the Oculus Meta Quest Pro has a wide field of view, which allows it not to neglect peripheral vision.

Oculus Meta Quest Pro: experience virtual reality like never before

With its Quest Pro, Meta aims to deliver one of the best virtual reality experiences out there, across the board. Understand that this helmet is not only intended for gaming, but from the beginning it is also intended as a work or creative tool to be used on a daily basis. To do this, Meta has bet on a multitude of sensors to offer a system of tracking precise and efficient.

With five sensors inside the helmet and another five outside, as well as cameras located on the controller, the Oculus Meta Quest Pro has a lot to do. Thus, it is able to follow your smallest gestures or movements, including the most subtle ones.

Among its most impressive feats is the ability to track the user’s eye movements to adjust the screen in real time. Or transcribing your avatar’s facial expressions when you’re chatting in the metaverse or in a VR chat room.

A lot of work has also been done on the Meta Quest Pro, Meta Quest Touch controllers. Haptic sensors on the trigger and thumb give a more realistic feel. The cameras located on each controller also allow very accurate recognition of movements, allowing, among other things, to draw or write.

Virtual or mixed reality, discover the full range of possibilities

The main advantage of this Oculus Meta Quest Pro, apart from its impressive technical data sheet, lies in its versatility. With this helmet, Meta offers us a comfortable product whatever use we want to make, relying on the entire arsenal offered by virtual reality and its derivatives.

  • Virtual reality : in a rather classic way, Meta Quest Pro offers easy access to the vast majority of VR experiences on the market. Thanks to its brilliant screens, it offers an unparalleled experience, with clear and precise, fluid images for a deeper than normal immersion. This headset is also suitable for exploring the metaverse or working in fully virtual spaces thanks to the facial recognition technology or the precision of its controllers.

  • Reality mixed : this technology – equivalent to augmented reality VR headsets on smartphones – makes it possible to mix real and virtual screens in the headset. A good way to enrich, for example, your work environment with a virtual office which is superimposed on your existing installation. Meta has also established numerous partnerships with companies such as Adobe, Autodesk and Windows to create enhanced applications for Meta Quest Pro.

In short, Meta deploys with this Quest Pro an extremely powerful tool capable of modifying the uses of virtual reality in our daily lives.
