These wide view VR Glasses are a step forward in the evolution of virtual reality technology for consumers.
Background on Field of View
VR headsets have been plagued by small Field of View (FOV) for decades. There are various technical limits on having a high FOV. For example, rendering an acceptable image in high FOV requires much more computing power and better screens.
Perhaps the most notable breakthrough of Palmer Luckey’s Oculus Rift Prototype is its wide FOV of approximately 100 degrees. That was a great leap forward, but it still has somewhat of a feel of looking through binoculars.
Humans have a FOV of about 180 degrees. And no VR headset can match that yet.
Wearality Sky VR Glasses
But the Wearality Sky features an amazing 150 degree FOV. This is much higher than all of the upcoming consumer VR headsets which are expected to have about 100 FOV.
I was skeptical, but there are already reports coming from people who tried it and say that it really works.
Wearality has a Kickstarter which is doing good, but isn’t funded yet. Watch their video and think about backing them.
You can see all virtual reality Kickstarters at this list I maintain.
