Sulon Q is a device that will be placed on the market by the end of this year, but it has a tremendous potential. This is a headset that can work alone, without a computer support to run properly. It is a model closer to HoloLens because the setup introduces facilities of augmented reality besides the virtual reality.
Sulon Technologies decided to equip this device with an OLED QHD display, along with hardware provided by AMD. AMD FX-8800P processor and graphic card AMD Radeon R7 are designed to implement all functions of this device: graphical and physical functions, spatial positioning, sound playback and many others. This model will also have a 3D camera to enable augmented reality applications in real time.
The price has not been announced, but we expect a fairly high one due to the features offered. Follow the latest news on the official site.
Meta 2 Development Kit
Meta 2 Development Kit is an augmented reality device that will be launched in the third quarter of this year. For patenting this project, developers led research to another level: they tried to fully understand the correlation between a man’s mind and body to create a more natural and fascinating experience for its users.
Where can you use it? Basically in any area where you work thanks to the the big number of features of this device which makes it particularly useful in any situation.
The device will have a generous resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, so the user’s visual field will not be limited and a 3D audio system consists of four speakers with the purpose of realizing a more authentic transposition of the wearer in the virtual environment. Calibration will be provided by a 6 axis inertial measurement unit system which will establish an excellent coordination between the device and the user’s actions. Connectivity between the headset and other devices will be achieved through a HDMI 1.4b port.
All these features are embedded by the developers under the slogan “The most immersive augmented reality” which aims to highlight the finished product obtained after more than three years of research.
You can preorder Meta 2 Development Kit from the official website for 949$.
