The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset has been described to be unreal, transformative and amazing by different people at different times. Of course, we have also taken the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset for a ride at CES earlier this year, but apart from the highly immersive way that VR headsets of yore could not deliver, the relatively low resolution display continues to be a bane, as it happens to lessen the virtual reality experience by a mile. Right now, existing developer kits rely on a 720p resolution display, with an Oculus Rift with an 1080p HD display being in development to boot. Needless to say, the higher resolution Oculus Rift would be better, but there are still distracting pixels around.
Polygon claims that Brandon Iribe, CEO of Oculus VR, has shared of a spanking new version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset that will arrive with a 4K display, or at least this particular idea has already made its way to the drawing board and should be fleshed out in due time. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the retail version that ships will eventually be this 4K model or not, but one can always hold out in hope and anticipation, can one not?
