The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA has showcased a lot of smartphone-based head-mounted displays (HMD) such as Samsung’s Gear VR. Another company at the event this year is ImmersiON-VRelia, which is exhibiting the recently-released The GO, another HMD that runs with a wider array of phones than what’s on offer with Samsung’s device.
The HMD works on a huge variety of different devices, claiming to be fully functional on most 4 to 6 inch smartphones and compatible for ‘millions of smartphone users’. It requires no glasses to use. Instead it will feature adjustable focusing for each eye, so you can make sure it matches your own prescription. Other than this The Go features a software development kit so that people can design community based VR videogames. It uses a app space called The Alterspace where you can acquire more VR content from games to created apps. Those featured include experiences from JauntVR.
Also at CES is The Pro Blue Sky. Though this was only shown to a small group of partners. This device will have a complete 120-degree field of view (FOV)with 1080×1920 displays. Different from other HMDs, The Pro is aiming to provide safe out of home use.
“We are empowering people to experience the digital world in a whole new way, blurring the line between real and virtual, and allowing people to be anywhere and do anything.” Said Manuel Gutierrez Novelo, CEO of ImmersiON-VRelia.
The Go will be released in January with the special edition featuring the Gamepad F2. VRFocus will keep you updated on ImmersiON-VRelia products.
