Sunny weather for the weekend after a few showers Friday

If you've been keeping up the VRFocus' coverage then you'll know that Oculus Go is fairly big news, with the company looking to offer a higher quality virtual reality (VR) experience than smartphone compatible headsets with a dedicated device that's not only affordable but also easy to use.

The price for the 64GB Oculus Go is not known yet.

The Oculus Go is also designed with a lightweight, breathable fabric so that it can be worn for hours at a time.

Oculus Go uses internal cameras, sensors and software to track movements that are translated into corresponding motion in virtual worlds rendered in headsets.
