Latest Innovations in Wearable Technology – Oculus Go
Oculus Go is an excellent ‘all-in-one’ VR headset that delivers both, quality and comfort and doesn’t cost a fortune. This smartphone-free headset is similar to the more expensive Oculus Rift – which does rely on a computer to work.
The value of Oculus Go VR headset lies in its lack of need for a smartphone. The device has a 5.5-inch display and comes with two storage options of 32GB and 64GB respectively. Oculus Go VR runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that’s found in many high-end smartphones.
Latest Innovations in Wearable Technology – Samsung Entrim 4D headphones
Staying in the realm of virtual reality, the Entrim 4D headphones from Samsung are designed to simulate movement to any VR headset by tricking your inner ear. Electrical signals, similar to those used to help restore balance in stroke patients, are delivered via the headphone’s electrodes.
These electrodes ‘create’ movement data which allow users to feel as if they are a part of the on-screen action, by creating a deep sensation of direction and speed of movement.
