2016 was the year of virtual reality, but that doesn’t mean that we there isn’t anywhere to go with these devices.
We expect that there will be a lot of virtual reality announcements during this year’s CES event and Lenovo has kept to that expectation today, unveiling their own plans for virtual reality today.
This was with the announcement of a prototype VR headset that they aim to release later this year, however, they did not reveal a specific date as of yet.
We do know that the headset will be one of the Windows 10 headsets that are being created for Microsoft’s Holographic platform, meaning that it will be able to run every Windows Store application available. In terms of specs, the prototype headset features two front-facing cameras along with two 1,440 x 1,440 OLED panels on the display that means it provides a better resolution that VR devices like the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift.
Lenovo also said that the final headset will weigh in at 350 grams for increase comfort, while having the ability to change the way that the headset’s weight is distributed across the wearer’s face.
That all said, this prototype doesn’t work at the moment.
Lenovo said that they haven’t decided the final price just yet, however, they did say that it won’t cost more than $400.
