The Vrvana Totem VR Headset: A New Way To See The World
This futuristic VR headset is taking the technology world by storm. While traditional headsets only allow you to see the worlds designed by software teams, the Vrvana Totem VR Headset allows you to see the real world around you, switching back and forth between interior screens and exterior cameras.
To understand more about this ambitious piece of tech, let’s look at the specs and features:
The impressive cameras boast 130 degrees of horizontal FOV M12 lenses for maximum field of view, which expands to 90 degrees.
The screen features 1080p with a RGB color scheme. In addition, the lens for each eye can be individually focused for maximum clarity and customization. To top it off, the lenses are extra large to make up for human sight deficincies.
The Vrvana Totem VR Headset features an input for HDMI, output for USB, and works with a variety of platforms seamlessly, such as: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC, and more.
It also supports Unreal Engine and Havoc Vision Engine, among others. The ability to plug and play on almost any device is a major advantage.
Not only does it feature two jacks of the standard 3.5mm measurement, but it also works with surround sound, giving you a true cinematic and immersive experience.
Controls of various platforms can be emulated, including PC mouse, Xbox, and PS3 functions. The accelerometer provides physical space detection for maximum game enjoyment.
Size and Weight
At around 6.5″ x 4.5″ by 5.5″, this device is small enough to carry around and large enough to provide incredible experiences. In addition, it only weights an estimated 390g, so taking it with you in a backpack or gaming bag is easy and quick.
Vrvana has been praised for their very active involvement in the VR community. By making such a splash in the industry, they look to disrupt a lot of the major players in the space, such as Occulus Rift. By combining the best features of other devices and improving on their deficiencies, it will be exciting to see what kind of experience Vrvana can provide.
