Virtual reality (VR) is set to finally hit the consumer market towards the end of the year, but not as a pair of stylish sunglasses. Instead, the VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) that will be introduced to the masses resemble something much bulkier. This is forgiveable in the technology’s early stages, of course, but not to Dlodlo VR. This new VR kit claims to be achieving the dream of a light, stylish HMD right now. VRFocus recently spoke to the developer behind the kit about how it was achieving this.
