On the documentation website developer Oculus Facebook appeared the code name for a future headset with the new controller and the availability of the program “First access” to some developers.
The text appears on multiple pages of developer documentation with the following message. It was first seen in the screenshot, posted to Reddit.
Code names Oculus
In the development of headsets Oculus has publicly available code names since the beginning of 2014, when the company introduced Crystal Cove that would become a Development Kit 2.
Names are selected from the coastal beaches and towns of California or the ocean in the case of Go:
- Crystal Cove has become a development kit of the Oculus Rift 2
- Crescent Bay Oculus Rift has become
- Half-Moon became a Oculus Touch controller
- Pacific became Oculus Go
- Santa Cruz was a project to bring similar Oculus Rift experience Autonomous
- Monarch was the name for early prototypes of Santa Cruz (to OC3)
- Monterey was the code name Oculus Quest
Del Mar: the successor to the Oculus Quest?
Documentation for the mobile API entry points out that “Del Mar” is actually mobile (probably offline) VR headset with the new controller, codenamed “Jedi”:
ovrControllerCaps_ModelOculusTouch = 0x00004000, //< Touch Controller For Oculus Oculus Quest
ovrControllerCaps_ModelOculusJedi = 0x0000C000, //< Jedi Controller For Oculus Oculus Del Mar
UploadVR found that in the cache of Google Search remains the indication “Del Mar” in the documentation for Haptics, indicating that the Jedi controller has haptic feedback, as controllers Quest Touch.
As Facebook pointed out that the successor to the Oculus Go will likely be to use hand tracking without a controller, it implies that after all we are talking about the successor to the Oculus Quest — it would be a logical step, given the success of the platform relative to the Rift Quest and Go.
UploadVR turned to Facebook for comment, but a spokesman only confirmed that the Del Mar — do beach city in California.
