The CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada, is the biggest technology show on the planet and it’ll be opening its doors for another week of high tech debuts in a few weeks time. While some companies like to leave their announcements to the last minute, others are more than happy to reveal an early preview. Just like Croatian hardware manufacturer Orqa, which will be using CES 2019 to showcase its latest headset, the FPV.One.
The FPV.One headset isn’t the normal virtual reality (VR) device you’d find on VRFocus, it’s a first-person viewing platform designed for remote reality applications, like the increasingly popular drone racing sport or other remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).
Orqa is currently building its design around premium MOLED panels by Sony Semiconductor Solutions Group. The FPV.One features a 44-degree field-of-view (FOV), a resolution of 1280 x 960, MicroSD card slot to store footage, IPD and lens to eye distance adjustment, and a switchable de-fogging fan.
“The Orqa technology roadmap is a game-changer across the entire existing FPV technology stack, enabling more immersive experiences and more advanced FPV/RR applications the world has never seen before,” said Srdjan Kovacevic, CEO, Orqa in a statement. “Orqa will be a top-tier technology brand, targeting the most demanding applications in drone racing and competitive freestyle acro-flying. This second-to-none FPV technology portfolio will propel Orqa to the top of the emerging Remote Reality market.”
Details including the actual price of the FPV.One and its launch date have yet to be revealed. VRFocus will be at CES 2019 to get a closer look at the headset, a side of the market that gaining more fans who want to race as well as spectate.
