Rift Core 2.0 Adds Oculus Dash and Home Update in December

Rift is getting its biggest update so far, with Head of Rift Nate Mitchell coming to the Oculus Connect stage to reveal Rift Core 2.0. With this update, the Oculus home menu is getting a major upgrade for touch systems, leading to the reveal of Oculus Dash.

In addition to a whole new menu layout, Oculus users will also be able to use Dash to remotely access their PCs without exiting the Rift.

With the introduction of Oculus Dash, it leaves more room to play around with Oculus Home, allowing for customizable spaces. This means cosmetic home components that can be placed anywhere. These customized homes can also be shared with friends, though details on how to do so were not revealed.

A free beta version of Rift Core 2.0 will be available this December. More details can be found on the Oculus Blog.
