Oculus Rift Teardown: Repairability Score (7/10)


The consumer version of Oculus Rift has started shipping to those who pre-ordered one a while back. Have you ever wondered what it takes to build such a headset? iFixit has released a teardown report that shows what the Rift has inside. It comes with two OLED displays (combined resolution of 2160 x 1200), 90 FPS refresh rate, sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer), and Constellation IR camera for 360-degree tracking.

The headset gets a repairability of 7 out of 10. As it turns out, the Oculus Rift has delicate ribbon cables and parts that make it difficult to remove the lenses, display, and motherboard. You can see the whole report here.
