VoodooRanger: TheNextStepInVRVirtual Reality, a.k.a.
VoodooVR, a virtual reality platform from the makers of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, has announced the arrival of its first major new accessory, the VoodooOne, which will be available for pre-order from November 1st.
Voodoo is aiming to deliver an affordable VR headset for consumers and businesses that offers a high-quality and comfortable experience, while at the same time being able to work seamlessly in any VR environment.
Voolos new headset, called Voodoo One, will feature a premium rubber-and-silicone base, a high quality foam core and a dual-dome earpiece.
This will allow users to enjoy the benefits of an in-ear earpiece without the earphones.
The new Voodoo headset is also designed to work with the Voolopedia, an inversion device that’s a VR companion for Voodoo.
“In a way, we’re building the virtual environment, not just the headsets,” Voodoos co-founder and CEO Chris Pang told me.
“The first VR headset has to be designed with VR in mind, so that you can get comfortable in the environment and feel like you’re there.”
It is not known when Voodos will launch this new VR headset, but it is expected to be available in time for the launch of the next version of the Vive, the $500 headset.
The Voodoo’s base is also being redesigned for an ergonomic feel, and the headband is made out of soft, flexible polypropylene and features an internal mic for microphone and headset use.
The headset is not compatible with the Vive’s existing wireless earbuds, however.
While not as affordable as the Vive-compatible headphones, the VR headset’s design will make it an attractive option for many.
Pang said that this new headset will be compatible with all current and future VR headsets.
“We’ve got to make sure that we’re going to make a good headset for VR, and we’re working on that,” he said.
The company has also announced the VoodoOne as an option for preorders on its website, with an expected delivery date of November 15th.
Pangs new headset features an invertible earpiece that allows for users to feel like they’re sitting on the back of a Voodoo while using the Vive headset.
While it may not be the most comfortable earbud, the inversion design of the Voomod will allow the head to move around a VR environment, making it more comfortable.
While the Voseone is a virtual world headset, it is not meant to be used for gameplay.
The VR headset will feature an integrated motion controller that users can use to navigate the VR environment and use other apps, such as VoodooTracker and Voodoo Music.
PANG said that he believes that VR has the potential to be a great technology for the future, and that VR is poised to become a powerful way to interact with people.
“When you’re sitting in front of the TV, you can use your eyes, and you can see, but when you’re using your VR headset you can’t see anything at all,” Pang explained.
“This is the next step in virtual reality.”
