Dlodlo V1 VR Headset with 2K Display Launched at $559, Looks like Real Sunglasses



Virtual Reality headsets are becoming more and more mainstream now, but the question is, how many are actually using them? Well, the answer is, not many. The main reason here could be the price. All the VR headsets available right now in the market costs upwards of $600. Hence, consumers are going for the regular smartphone VR headsets to fulfil their VR urge.

Another reason here to consider here is the size. These VR headsets are big bulky boxes; that fits on your head. Most of them are often heavy or have multiple wires running around. So maybe if these two problems are resolved, then we might actually see consumers going for the professional VR headsets. Not sure about the price, but a Chinese firm has already figured out a way to get to rid of the box design of the VR Headset.

A Chinese VR startup called the Dlodlo, has developed a VR Headset that looks like a real sunglass. This is as good as it gets now for a VR Headset. This VR headset or sunglass as you might call it costs $559 & it more or less looks like welding goggles. The best part is, it weighs only 88 grams, which is insanely light for a VR headset considering the fact that HTC Vive weighs about 500 grams.

So essentially how this works is, it connects to either a PC or a phone-sized device called the D1. The company compares this D1 device to an iPod touch and says that the whole setup could fit in a small purse. Also, the display is of 2K resolution, which puts it right above the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive. But there’s nothing much can do without a separate device powering this headset. Also, the Dlodlo has to be purchased separately for which the price is unknown. We have other inexpensive VR like the one Carl Zeiss optics launched.

As far as the interaction goes, you can control the games, etc. using a gamepad. The first version of the VR Headset will go on sale this fall, and it will be a development edition. It is also stated that users will be able to connect the headset to iOS and Android devices. It is unclear as to how this will be received in the market because VR as technology has not seen much other than the basic smartphone headsets. Stay tuned for more info on this.
