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.
