Along with the latest batch of photos for the Oculus Rift consumer headset, we get a high resolution look under the shell of the hotly anticipated device.
Oculus has never been shy about showing what’s under the hood. When they revealed the Rift DK2 development kit back in March, 2014, they showed bare photos of the unit’s circuit board, proudly stamped with the company logo.
Last year at their inaugural developer conference, Oculus Connect, the company open-sourced the Oculus Rift DK1 development kit by putting the entirety of its design, from the shell to the circuity to the firmware, online for anyone to use.
Also back in 2014, when iFixit got their hands on the DK2, they pried it open and uncovered that hidden inside the headset was the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, apparently plucked right from the production line as the device’s touchscreen was still attached. This interesting foreshadowing heralded the work between Oculus and Samsung on the Gear VR headset that was revealed later that year.
The consumer Oculus Rift is confirmed to be using dual 1080×1200 OLED displays. It hasn’t been confirmed, but we’d guess that Samsung remains the manufacturer.
