Czech-based virtual reality startup VRgineers is building a reputation as the manufacturer for top-end virtual reality headsets. The company’s earlier VRHero headset hosted an eye-popping 5K resolution, probably one of the best in the entire gamut of VR headsets available today.
The impressive and immersive-rich visual clarity with wide viewing angles was certainly a treat for its users. However, these goodies came along with some bulky and not-so ergonomic designs. With further refinement on the size and design, VRgineers has recently unveiled its new XTAL VR Headset which is more compact and lighter. It also integrates new features like AutoEye and Leap Motion Hand Tracking.
VRgineers XTAL VR Headset
The all-new VRgineers XTAL VR Headset weighs nearly 12% less than its predecessor and, as you can see in the side-by-side comparison in the image below, the XTAL headset clearly looks to be more compact and offer better housing.
With the new VR headset, VRgineers still carries its legacy forward of hosting a razor-sharp display featuring a pair of 2,560 × 1,440 OLED displays with a 170-degree field of view. This is one of the most intuitive features for VR Porn lovers like me as it lets me enjoy all my VR Porn ultra-high quality premium content on-the-go. Moreover, the reduced weight of the XTAL headset will certainly add to my long hours of intimate VR Porn viewing sessions with absolute convenience.
Two more interesting built-in features that the XTAL headset offers are AutoEye and LeapMotion. AutoEye is the company’s self-baked inter-pupillary distance (IPD) technology wherein the headset itself calibrates the width between the user’s eyes and simultaneously adjusts the distance between the lenses. This adds more convenience while swapping your VR headsets with friends/family since it overcomes the clumsy manual adjustments that were traditionally needed.
An earlier report of VRgineers working with Leap-Motion for integrated hand-tracking is finally confirmed. In the last few years, Leap Motion emerged as the pioneers for hand-tracking solutions in virtual reality. To implement this hand-tracking feature, XTAL VR headset hosts a pair of cameras along with IR emitters, thereby enabling hand-tracking in a 180 x 180 degree area.
Commenting on the launch, Marek Polcak, VRgineers CEO said: “Over the last year, we’ve invested hundreds of hours talking to our enterprise users across industries, gathering feedback and learning what makes VR usage in professional applications difficult. Then we put all our passion into creating the next generation VR headset that addresses these issues.”
