Oculus Rift's Teardown Exposes An Easy To Fix VR Headset

By 01:59 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments

The Oculus Rift orders are shipping now, and the long awaited VR headset is already in utilize by the most eager fans around the world. As it happens these days, the guys over iFixit were in a rush to tear down the thing and check out its internals.

So, the first and most vital conclusion iFixit has drawn is that the Rift is quite easy to repair of something happens to it.

Unlike the developer's version, which used a 1080p Galaxy Note 3 display, the retail one uses two separate Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) 90mm pieces behind the two lenses, each with a display of 456ppi.

Thanks to those gigantic lenses you are seeing, the display looks further away when compared to the Oculus-powered Gear VR headset (with any compatible Galaxy smartphone).

You can also learn about its chip, boards, among other things over the iFixit post.
