A Bluetooth 3D V/R headset for the masses.
I’ve been waiting a long time for a wireless virtual reality 3D headset system with good quality imagery. Although I would not consider this high resolution, by my 360º standards, it’s good enough for what most people want. I think this is a practical tool for the real estate market now, due to the portability and price-point ($550 to $660).
I wish there was a way to show a demo in this post. The coolest 3D tour I have, is the Hotel Indigo I shot here in Nashville. When viewing the kuula.co version, there are “hot-spots” linking the tour points together. All you have to do is look at them (denoted by floating white circles) and it will transport you to the next location!
I love the safety features of this system. You set up what is called a “Guardian Play Area” before you start. If you get too close to the perimeter, it displays a grid on the boundary. If you walk thru the grid, you can actually see the real world!
V/R headsets are not for everyone. I large number of people get dizzy using them. Most people I have met, know who they are. Anyone with a history of epilepsy, should stay away. It could trigger a seizure. But for those that can, it’s an immersive experience that can’t be beat.
The Oculus Quest I just received was on backorder for almost two months. I believe this is due to the emerging market beyond the V/R gamers.
