Oculus Rift Constellation Teardown
These are some common tools used to work on this device. You might not need every tool for every procedure.
Background and Identification ¶
The Rift CV1 (consumer version) by Oculus follows the release of the Crescent Bay prototype in September 2014, and is the first consumer-targeted version of the VR headset. The Rift features two 1080p displays that support a > 100º horizontal field-of-view. Motion tracking is powered by Constellation, a desk-mounted IR camera that can track the headset's position and orientation with little lag and high accuracy.
The Rift CV1 initially ships with an Xbox One controller, but will work with custom Oculus Touch controllers, expected to ship in mid-2016.
