At the Tokyo Game Show 2016 in Japan last week there was a fair amount of virtual reality (VR) tech on display, with developers and manufacturers showcasing their latest products. Chinese company Dlodlo was there exhibiting the company’s first consumer VR product, the Dlodlo V1 glasses.
Dlodlo released the 3.1-ounce device last month in New York, US, designed to be compact, portable and easy-to-wear. Dlodlo V1 provides 2400×1200 resolution, 800+ PPI, 105 degree field of view (FOV), 90Hz refresh rate as well as minimized dynamic delay for a better user experience.
“We are excited to introduce our signature products to Japan at the Tokyo Game Show to deliver the brand new concept of VR,” said Li Gang, CEO of Dlodlo. “We’ve taken further steps in every aspect from optics to electronics, material to structure to bring the development of VR technology to the next level.”
Made out of carbon fibre the Dlodlo V1 glasses feature a 9-axis sensor for tracking of head movements. To view content users need to content the device to a PC or smartphone via cable.
The company is teaming up with Sojitz Corporation to launch Dlodlo V1 in Japan in 2017. “Glass V1 is highly welcomed at the Tokyo Game Show,” said Kaiu Ueda, Virtual Reality Project Leader, Sojitz Pla-Net Corporation. “We hope through the partnership with Dlodlo, Japanese customers will enjoy ultimate virtual reality experience in terms of 3D videos, VR panorama clips and action-packed games in the future. ”
This isn’t Dlodlo’s first VR headset, with the company also designing the Glass H1. Looking very similar to Samsung Gear VR the Dlodlo Glass H1 actually functions like some of the many versions of Google Cardboard, whereby accepting various smartphones in a stronger plastic housing with head straps.
