PC-based virtual reality headsets nay annoy you because of the wires and this is normally where smartphone-based VR headsets are such a good option because they remove the PC and the wires by using the smartphone that you already have in your pocket.
Today the virtual reality headset firm Pico Interactive, debuted another option for using a VR headset without the wires.
Called the Pico Goblin, it is a new all-in-one that the company revealed they will be unveiling at the E3 2017 conference this year.
This headset is similar to the smartphone-based VR headsets such as the Daydream or the Samsung Gear VR but without the smartphone.
It can do this because the Pico Goblin comes with its own processing, display, storage and Android operating system, allowing it to be an all-in-one system that you can pick up and go with.
This includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Android 7.0 Nougat, and two 70Hz displays that can provide a 2.5K resolution when combined. It also uses Pico’s three-degrees-of-freedom (3DoF) head tracking along with their 3DoF tracking controller to use to interact with virtual reality experiences.
And that’s not all, Pico will also show another headset at E3 next month, called the Pico Neo CV, which is another wireless headset that improves upon the Goblin with 3K AMOLED displays and 4GB of RAM.
