Today DJI announced the launch of a new VR headset called the DJI Googles.
They have been designed to work alongside DJI’s Mavic Pro, Phantom 4, and Inspire series drones and allow you to view the feed from your drone as if you were sitting in it.
This creates a first-person flying experience that is sure to impress.
The Googles will also allow you to control the camera gimbal with head movements and even fly the drone while immersed.
However, you won’t have full control over the drone’s path while in this head-tracking mode but you will be able to move forward and turn both left and right.
You can also have someone else control the gimbal while you fly the drone.
DJI’s Googles also feature two viewing modes to keep you in that immersion, one of which is at a 720p resolution at 60fps and another at a 1080p resolution at 30fps.
Both of these are shown at a 110ms resolution, with a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution per eye.
The Googles also feature a navigation touchpad, a headphone jack, a microSD card slot, a microUSB port, and an HDMI input. It’s also very portable with a six-hour battery life.
You can pre-order the DJI Googles in the US for $449 today, it is expected to start shipping in late May.
We don’t yet know about UK pricing or availability.
