Oculus unveiled its Rift virtual reality headset back in May with few details on its specifications and features, but that is slowly changing as the company continues to reveal more information about what the Rift will offer to consumers when it goes on sale in the first quarter of 2016. Just in time for the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles from June 16 to 18, the Oculus team announced that the Rift will include dual AMOLED displays that are designed specifically for VR to provide users with incredible visual clarity as they explore virtual worlds with the device. Also revealed is that the Rift headset will use an infrared LED constellation tracking system that provides precise, low-latency 360-degree orientation and position tracking for users for accurate and fluid control and operation when playing games and simulations. For gaming fans, Oculus has also announced that each Rift will ship with a wireless Microsoft Xbox One controller so that users can play next-generation games and experiences with the device right out of the box.
