Facebook Leaks Codename For ‘Del Mar’ Headset With ‘Jedi Controller’


Fb’s Oculus developer documentation web site leaked the code title for a future headset, with a brand new controller, and the existence of a ‘First Entry’ program for some builders.

The textual content confirmed up on a number of pages of the developer documentation, with the next message. It was first noticed in a screenshot posted to reddit. UploadVR verified the pages that contained this message and took screenshots:

Oculus Codenames

Oculus headsets in improvement have been given public code names since early 2014, when the corporate revealed Crystal Cove which might go on to develop into Growth Package 2.

The names are chosen from California coastal seashores and cities, or the ocean itself within the case of Go:

Crystal Cove turned the Oculus Rift Growth Package 2Crescent Bay turned the Oculus RiftHalf-Moon turned the Oculus Contact controllersPacific turned Oculus GoVenture Santa Cruz was the undertaking to deliver a Rift-like expertise to standaloneMonarch was the title for early Santa Cruz prototypes (earlier than even OC3)Monterey was the codename for the Oculus Quest

Del Mar: Oculus Quest’s Successor?

The documentation for the cellular enter API signifies (at current time of writing) that ‘Del Mar’ is actually a cellular (seemingly standalone) VR headset, with a brand new controller codenamed ‘Jedi’:

ovrControllerCaps_ModelOculusTouch = 0x00004000, //< Oculus Contact Controller For Oculus Quest

ovrControllerCaps_ModelOculusJedi = 0x0000C000, //< Oculus Jedi Controller For Oculus Del Mar

UploadVR discovered that Google Search had archived the Del Mar message on the documentation for Haptics, indicating that the Jedi controller has haptic suggestions, just like the Quest’s Contact controllers.

Since Fb indicated that an Oculus Go successor would seemingly use controller-free hand monitoring, this is able to counsel that that is an entry within the Oculus Quest line- a logical step given the success of the Quest platform relative to Rift and Go.

We reached out to Fb for remark, however a consultant would solely verify that Del Mar is certainly a seaside metropolis in California.
