Sulon presents a peek at a real all-in-one VR headset
The perfect digital actuality headset does not want anything to work its magic: no wires, no monitoring sensors, no smartphones. That is been largely elusive, however Sulon Applied sciences thinks it is on the cusp of creating this work. It simply offered a sneak peek on the Sulon Q, a VR and augmented actuality headset that operates totally by itself. It combines a quad HD OLED show with AMD computing hardware (an FX-8800P chip with Radeon R7 graphics), audio and spatial processing to do the whole lot you want in your noggin. In principle, you solely need to don this Home windows-based mostly gadget to start out wandering digital worlds — and you will not get caught up in cabling when you’re at it.
Sulon is not discussing pricing for the Q simply but, however it must be out there in late spring. Whether or not or not it really works in addition to promised is one other matter. How nicely it really works will depend upon the software program you should use with it. And whereas the Q is pitched as “light-weight,” strapping a pc to your head is more likely to be extra burdensome than sporting a targeted system just like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. If Sulon pulls this off, although, it’s going to be a lot simpler to know for VR newcomers who might not relish the considered shopping for an costly PC (or connecting to any gadget) simply to get began.
