Xiaomi’s VR headset may be launched on the 4th of this month


Xiaomi’s VR headset has been in the works for a while now, and it looks like the company is finally going to take the wraps off of the device on the 4th of August, also known as this month.

This news comes from Xiaomi’s latest bunch of teasers for the device, which don’t really show much about the device. While there aren’t many details about the headset, we do know it exists thanks to Xiaomi general manager Tang Mu.

Tang goes on to tell us that Xiaomi’s VR headset will be compatible with Google’s Daydream VR platform. What this means is that Xiaomi can optimize MIUI for VR, something they’ve complained about in the past.

With this, Xiaomi is now set to join the mobile VR headset wars along with Lenovo, Samsung and Huawei. Whether they succeed or not however is a completely different story, and one that we can’t wait to cover in the future.

What do you think about Xiaomi’s upcoming VR headset? Will it offer enough to compete with it’s rival products? Tell us in the comments below.

      For the people who like to walk around with that thing strapped to their face, flailing their arms in the air while they bump into everything in site. Quite hilarious to watch how ridiculous people look when they wear those things.

        The most hilarious part is when they get the thing off their face after 30mn of intense “virtual reality”, walk a few steps then run to the toilets and puke.

        But hey, if anyone wanna play a 3D game from the 90’s with a screen stuck in front of their face because Marketing says it’s the future, can’t fight with that.

        I think the most immersive games are the one that make you feel emotions (curiosity, excitment, fear, etc…) and/or provide strong identification with the main character. That surely isn’t relative to the distance between our eyes and the screen, but to a state of art many companies can’t deliver, too busy looking for the best ROI when developing their new “cultural product”. But i may be wrong.
