Acer launches OJO 500 Windows mixed reality headset in India

By Anuj Sharma - November 26, 2018
As a Windows Mixed Reality headset, there are currently more than 2,500 compatible games and applications for the Acer OJO 500, between the Steam VR and the Microsoft Store platforms. ....

Tech giant Acer has launched OJO 500 – a Windows Mixed Reality headset featuring one-of-a-kind detachable design that enables the lens and head-strap to be individually removed, making the headset easy to store and clean.

The Acer OJO 500 includes a built-in interpupillary distance (IPD) wheel and a patented smartphone app to measure IPD distance (the gap between the eye’s pupil and the display). The software-assisted IPD measurement app, Acer IPD Meter, along with Acer IPD Indicator software, lets the wearer modify this distance for sharper, clearer images and a more enjoyable experience.

There are two front-hinged, 2.89-inch high-resolution liquid crystal displays that provide a wide 100-degree field of view and deliver a 2880 x 1440 resolution.

Featuring inside-out tracking, the camera sits on the headset. As soon as the headset connects to a Windows Mixed Reality-ready PC, it installs the required software. The 6 degrees of freedom positional tracking includes forward/back, up/down and left/right, as well as pitch, yaw and roll.

The headset comes with a 4-meter (13 feet) cable, allowing a wide range of movement, and connects to a PC via HDMI 2.0, while a USB 3.0 connector downloads data.

The Acer OJO 500 also comes in an optional configuration that includes two Bluetooth enabled motion controllers that sync with the headset. It features a Windows 10 button, touchpad and a grab button to let users interact with digital objects in mixed reality.

The Acer OJO 500 will be available at Rs 39,999, starting from the first quarter of 2019.
