LOS ANGELES (AP) Oculus has unveiled a new prototype of its virtual reality headset. However, the VR company still isn't ready to release a consumer edition.

The hew headset features a higher resolution and refresh rate, 360-degree head tracking and integrated headphones.

Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe says the new prototype is not perfect, but it's closer to the consumer version.

The Irvine, California-based VR company revealed the new headset nicknamed Crescent Bay on Saturday at its first conference for developers.

Oculus' headset covers a user's eyes and can create immersive worlds that react to head movement.

The original prototype of the Oculus Rift headset was unveiled in 2012 and has received attention from video game and film makers.

Oculus VR Inc. was acquired by Facebook earlier this year for $2 billion.
