This alongside a brand new all-in-one headset.
VR motion tracking specialists Nolo VR revealed several new additions to its lineup of VR hardware during CES 2021 this week, including a brand new 6DoF cloud VR solution costing less than $200.
Composed of the Nolo N2 mobile VR headset, a Google Cardboard-style head-mounted display, and the Nolo CV1 Pro motion tracking kit, the platform utilizes smartphone technology and high-speed in-home broadband to stream cloud VR content over a 5G or WLAN connection. Developed in cooperation with China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom, the aforementioned bundle is aimed specifically at mobile network operators focused on cloud VR projects.
While the company stresses this is by no means a replacement for high-fidelity PC VR experiences, the 6DoF cloud VR solution could serve as a cost-effective alternative to higher-priced standalone VR headsets, such as the $299 Oculus Quest 2.
In addition to this money-saving cloud VR solution, Nolo used this years showcase to unveil a brand new standalone headset. This “plug-and-play” ODM solution uses the companies own SodarTraq® ultrasonic positioning technology and a dual-camera SLAM system to deliver 6DoF inside-out tracking without the need of additional external sensors. Instead of relying on manual downloads, users stream cloud VR content over a 5G or WLAN connection.
Users interact with cloud VR content using two motion controllers nearly identical to those of the Oculus Quest/Quest 2 and Oculus Rift S. Aimed for use by mobile networks and commercial brands, the X1 can also be customized to meet a variety of needs. This includes alterations such as regular and short-focus displays, differentiated configurations, and ID design just to name a few. Other than that little else is known about Nolo’s unnamed headset.
Then there’s the Nolo CV1 Air, a 6DoF motion tracking solution aimed specifically for use with short-focus “glasses-type” headsets such as HUAWEI VR Glass. Much like the Nolo CV1 pro, this motion tracking kit sits above the headset itself and comes with two motion controllers similar in shape to the PlayStation Move controllers.
And wrapping things up we have the Nolo X1, a 6DoF cloud-based standalone VR headset featuring PolarTraq® spatial positioning technology, a Qualcomm X1 chipset and 2.5K/4K screen resolution options.
“We hope to work together to provide a more innovative 5G Cloud VR experience for global users and drive the popularity of immersive VR through deep collaboration with telecom operators,” stated the company in an official release.
