Nolo VR, a Chinese virtual reality (VR) company, is set to launch a new ODM standalone VR headset at the CES 2021. The device has been designed for customers across various segments including mobile networks, brands, and also for new entrants to the VR market.
With the progression of the pandemic and further expected lockdowns, Zoom is still going to be the platform for workplace collaboration for the majority of businesses. Nolo VR is planning to capitalize on this continuity of the remote work culture by launching several new products with their new headset set to debut in just a few days at the event.
The device is being referred to as a 6DoF Inside-Out All-in-One VR headset and will continue to be unless the official name for the product is disclosed.
The headset will put Nolo VR’s SodarTraq ultrasonic positioning technology to use and the device’s 6DoF tracking will use a dual-camera SLAM solution. The product also draws inspiration from the Vive Cosmos and Oculus Touch designs as its accompanying controllers come with similar button configurations.
Not much has been disclosed about the device yet and aspects like the screen resolution or battery life are still a mystery. However, Nolo VR clarified that its ODM solution will allow for customization options such as differentiated configuration and regular/short-focus display among others. It is also expected to be launched in several color options and bundled with some sort of phone contracts.
Nolo VR pioneered the development of 6DoF tracking technology for mobile VR headsets such as Daydream View and Samsung Gear VR. The company has been on a roll since 2016 and has added multiple products to its portfolio.
Back at CES 2020, the Nolo N2, the 6DoF tracking solution, and Nolo CV1 Pro debuted as a bundle of a smartphone-based virtual reality headset and a cloud VR solution costing $200. The devices were designed to stream VR content onto VR headsets over a 5G or WLAN connection. Nolo receives support from several Chinese telecommunications companies to allow for 5G streaming.
In addition to the launch of this headset, the Nolo CV1 Air which is a 6DoF tracking kit for the Huawei VR Glass, and the Nolo X1 standalone VR headset, a VR device that enables wireless streaming for SteamVR, are also expected to be unveiled. The Nolo X1 sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 CPU and comes with a 96-degree FoV, 3GB RAM, 75Hz refresh rate along with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
