Lenovo showcases its Windows Holographic VR headset

Posted on Tuesday, January 03 2017 @ 15:29:07 CET by


One of the new things from Lenovo at CES 2017 is the company's first VR headset. The Verge got to see a prototype and reports the device is noticeable smaller and lighter than other tethered VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

The goal of Lenovo is to make its VR headset conform to a target of around 350g for the final product, versus the Vive's 555g weight. Lenovo's headset works with the Windows Holographic platform and features two 1440 x 1440 pixels OLED panels, which gives it a higher resolution than the Rift and Vive.

Unfortunately, the prototype at CES is little more than a mockup. It wasn't functional so the reporter from The Verge wasn't able to try it out.
Another question is how well its tracking works; it uses inside-out, six degrees-of-freedom tracking, which means there’s no external camera necessary, but the tech is yet to ship in a product and we’re not sure how Windows Holographic’s implementation will work out. Lenovo also isn’t producing any motion controllers for the headset, instead relying on third-party options that will be manufactured to the Windows Holographic specification.
The Chinese PC builder claims its VR headset will ship sometime later this year. The estimated retail price is said to be $300 to $400 but Lenovo is doing its best to get it as close to $300 as possible.
