Oculus is launching a low-cost, all-in-one VR headset next year

Oculus will launch a new low-cost, standalone VR headset early next year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at today's Oculus Connect event in San Jose.

Oculus Go, as the new "super lightweight" headset is known, is designed to be as affordable and accessible as possible, positioned somewhere between the Oculus Rift and Gear VR.
