Xiaomi Virtual Reality Affordable Headset!

Xiaomi VR 3D are a pair of new virtual reality headset glasses that you now could get! This is great if you want to try out VR with your phone. Especially good if you can’t afford HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. The size this headset works with are smartphones that are 4.7-5.7 inch in size.

Specs: Zipper design, Lycra material, Novelty design, Immersive, Hollowed-out design for heat dissipation, Thread metal button, Anti-dazzle lens, Anti-skit design to avoid home button and Meristic Reticle to easy put phone in the middle.

Some people have complained that Xiaomi didn’t add padding to the place where headset rests against your forehead and that it can become uncomfortable. It’s great how it has a button on top side so you don’t have to take out and put in the phone again when a movie end for example.

They should also be a bit better than just cardboard VR glasses. Most people seems to agree that the build quality is excellent and it’s the best money can buy. The headset comes fully in black colour with a touch of orange for the Mi Logo.

It supports viewing panorama videos and images. It has a strap that goes above your head that make it sit comfortable. Some have complained that using it for a long time is not all that great. Another good thing is that the sharpness is great. I think most people will buy this one for watching movies with.

Another great thing is you might be able to use this headset even when having a large phone with a case. Light from surrounding can leak especially from below so I guess a dark room is best area to use this one in. Do you know any other great VR headsets out there you want me to check out?

Xiaomi Have Released a Mi VR Headset!

Xiaomi got a low-cost affordable MI VR headset! This is way cheaper and more affordable than for example HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Gear VR or PlayStation VR.

Specs: 9-Axis Inertial Motion Controller, Type-C Interface, FOV103 Focus, Supports Mi5/Mi5S/5s Plus/Mi6/Xiaomi Note 2, Hardware-level motion sensor 16x sensitive, 16ms ultra-low latency, Custom-made 38mm PMMA lens and 103 degrees Field of View.

That is some of the main specs on MI VR! This is perfect for phones with VR-oriented processors like Snapdragon 820/821 and Adreno 530 GPU. The materials they are created in are velvet and plastic. The refresh rate is 1600Hz. You seem to get a controller and touch control support.

Inside of the MIUI VR experience you get access to 30+ apps and 500+ panoramic videos. There is also over 200+ registered developers working on new things for the platform!

To use MI VR of course you would need a smart phone. And you can only use a modern Xiaomi smartphone to get this up and running. It’s great how the VR is around half the price of what you would pay to get Gear VR Samsung headset. The headset is adjustable between 525mm-630mm.

The VR headset itself is using a bosch 6 axis IMU sensor. You can also adjust the Focus inside the VR headset just as with other variants. The controller is being run by 2x AAA batteries that can last up to 60 hours. And it’s using bluetooth 4.0.

The VR headset has a weight of 408 grams. I’m curious if we one day will get more light weight VR tech. Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality seems to be a little bit slimmer. Google Glass seems to have failed. We still got a long way to go before technology like VR will be easier to carry around. At least these phone VR headsets doesn’t have wires as for example HTC Vive.

Look at This Cool PlayStation VR Bundle!

In the last blog post I showed you an epic Oculus Rift bundle starter pack. Well there is also another VR pack that you can argue is even more insane. This pack comes with 8 VR discs! It’s called the PlayStation VR Deluxe Bundle!

First it comes packed with Sony’s latest console PlayStation 4 Pro, 1TB storage, VR headset, processor unit, VR connection cable, HDMI cable, USB cable, stereo headphones, AC power cord, AC adapter, VR demo disc, PlayStation Camera, Two PlayStation Move motion controllers and 8 different VR discs!

The games in this VR Deluxe Bundle package are: PSVR Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, PSVR EVE: Valkyrie, PSVR Battlezone, Batman: Arkham VR, PSVR DriveClub, RIGS Mechanized Combat League with VR support and Resident Evil 7: Bioshazard with VR support. I guess that’s 7 games and one VR demo disc!

Both the VR headset and the PlayStation Camera needs to get plugged into the PS4. The VR headset uses an OLED 1080p 5.7″ display running at 120 frames per second.

I really enjoy the creativity they have done with the PlayStation Move controllers. They have round balls on them at the top. It’s a different design to the design you get on HTC Vive controllers. I am curious which one that feels the best. I may buy the Sony VR headset because clearly VR is the future of gaming!

It will also be interesting to see if VR will become popular in other areas than just gaming. The problem these days is that VR headsets are pretty bulky and you need to set it up for some time before you can use it.

I’m curious if the time will come when it’s super easy and light weight to use. Kind of like Google Glass. We all know Google Glass failed for the moment. But maybe with VR advancement we can see some exciting new development in the future.

Microsoft is also trying with their HoloLens technology to create a mixed reality technology. It will be interesting to see the future in this niche! What do you think about this VR Deluxe PlayStation Bundle?

Oculus Rift Wild VR Easy Starter Pack!

Ever been too lazy and don’t know where to start in this new Virtual Reality world? I had the same feel last year. I researched and found the best VR headset was HTC Vive at that time. I bought it and a VR ready laptop! Worked great!

There is also another company that is producing VR headsets. They are called Oculus. And now a starter pack has been created with the Rift VR headset. It’s available where you get the Virtual-Reality headset, Earphone, Oculus Touch and Alienware X51 R3 powerful PC all in one package!

The PC in the package solution is running with Windows 10, Intel Core i5 6400 2.7GHz processor, 16GB DDR4, 256GB SSD, GTX 970 (that is using 4GB dedicated video memory!). The good thing here is that you don’t have to worry if the headset will work with your station. Here you know from the start it’s VR ready to go computer!

If you have never tried VR before than it will be a cool first hand experience. I really love my HTC Vive VR headset and can tell you it’s only going to be more amazing in the future!

What it does is it creates a realistic world in front of you that can make you forget the “real world”. Especially when you put on the earphones! With the sensors you place in your home the headset always know where you are at. So you don’t walk into something!

PlayStation VR is another VR system you might want to check out. There are also a ton of cheaper VR solutions out there that doesn’t cost a fortune. Even though this package can be expensive you have to remember that this is not just another boring game experience. This is the future the world will be moving more into. What do you think about this package for VR? Everyone that have tried VR experience get’s addicted too it!
