The Oculus Go device has been out for a few months now and critics are overwhelmingly positive. From games, to music, to movies, people are suing their Oculus Go Headset for everything. How could you not? The device itself supports HD videos and nice crisp sound while at the same time allowing you to live in a fantastical world from the future. It is like an extension to television.
Some people have been taking their Oculus Go time to extremes by watching 360 degree YouTube videos on their device. The Oculus allows you to experience some videos in a completely different way. Watching a space exploration video is very different when experienced through a VR headset?
