Former HTC CEO Peter Chou has launched a new virtual reality company based around a Sims-like social network to make VR feel less "gimmicky" and 'lonely'.
The headset will uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 mobile computing system with 6GB of RAM, along with a 90Hz 2,880 x 1,440 resolution display. Beyond that, the Mova specs we got in advance of today's official announcement are extremely vague. The Mona VR headset, which will be available in the third quarter of this year, will have a price tag of $ 599. There are also links to third-party games and apps.
The platform is made up of XRSpace Mova, a 5G-capable, standalone VR headset and XRSpace Manova a social world where users can connect, work together, find entertainment, create and more. XRSpace is also supposed to have its own accessory ecosystem, including optional hand controllers and tracking sensors, which are described as much smaller versions of HTC's Vive Tracker. The standalone Oculus Quest can turn into a PC-tethered headset, while SteamVR supports almost any wired headset. It's a short list that includes apps like Getty Images' VR viewer alongside games like Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs.
The MOVA not only translates hand gestures into virtual world interactions, but also utilizes space scanning applications to seamlessly recreate real physical locations inside VR, the company said. The product will be launched first in Taiwan and then across Europe, China and the U.S., respectively. XRSpace has cut partnership deals with Germany's Deutsche Telecom and Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom, which could help subsidize the cost for users. XRSpace obviously postponed the launch 2 months as a result of the coronaviruspandemic, yet Chou states automation began this month for a first rollout inTaiwan Launches are meant to adhere to throughout Europe, China, and the UnitedStates The Oculus Quest is still just intermittently offered, so the Mova launch in fact occurs as prepared, it would not be hard for XRSpace to locate a room out there- yet just with even more proof of great equipment and a software application community. So, aside from a more powerful processor, what does the Mova offer that's new?
