Attempts to gain ground in the segment of virtual reality are numerous, and the two top contenders in the high-end HTC – Oculus Rift and lives – are added competitors with less ambition but with bold proposals.
One of the last to try is the Chinese manufacturer Pico, who wants to launch its own proposal, called Pico VR. What is unique about these glasses Virtual reality is that neither need a mobile for attachment to them or a PC that offers all the power needed for those experiences. The secret of everything is in control, with a design reminiscent of the lines would probably use Nintendo.
A command that is more than it seems
That command control with a simplistic exterior design extreme encloses a small but powerful miniPC. In it we find a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage capacity – with a microSD- slot and are based on a version of Android specially adapted to this device.
The control has conventional controls such peripherals, but also has a touchpad and motion sensors working with a pair of external monitoring cameras -similar to the HTC lives – that allow immersion experience that content virtual reality is optimal.

The glasses work in conjunction with the control and offer two screens of 1200 x 1080 pixels, a refresh rate of 90Hz and a viewing angle of 102 degrees. Its weight of 320 grams makes them comfortable and light for all kinds of areas. This product is expected to be available in June for a price that will be around $550, but Pico also offers another option: buy only the glasses for $300 and use connected to a PC.
