What we’re watching for at the Oculus Connect VR conference

It will be fascinating to see Facebook’s plans now that Google has done their Fall product release with a new Daydream headset. We’ll be looking for the following:

  • What stats will Facebook release for hardware sales or VR software downloads?
  • Will Facebook release a new standalone VR headset?
  • Will Samsung’s Gear VR be further integrated into the Oculus ecosystem?
  • Will Oculus announce new partnerships?
  • Will we see any connection between Facebook’s VR and AR platforms?
  • What new developments are in store for Facebook Spaces and its social VR projects?
  • Will there be updates to the Oculus Avatars?
  • Will we hear anything about the company’s AR headset efforts?

It’s more than enough to keep us busy. Our reactions and commentary to follow.
