Millet VR one machine has been in the process, millet exploration laboratory / millet intelligent product marketing director Li Qi in Jiangsu first virtual reality development forum "announced that millet will be at the end of the joint Facebook's Oculus launched VR one machine. And promised, millet will continue to invest in the VR 3 to 5 years time. We all know that millet launched a variety of low-end adaptation of millet mobile phone VR mobile phone box, the one machine has been planned.
One machine will replace the phone box?
HTC announced that it will cooperate with Google in the end of 2017 release VR one machine. This is the VR industry trend of the big news. Although there are already many VR manufacturers to do one machine, such as the storm in early 2017 launched a machine Matrix, but HTC's entry is still not the same.
Has been located in the high-end PC VR HTC is in the fine grinding hardware experience and quality content, then enter the mobile VR, indicating that the current hardware and software has been relatively mature.
The beginning of the Cardboard, Storm Mirror, cottage glasses these low-end boxes are in the training market. At this stage, mobile phone manufacturers clearly in the production of VR mobile phone box has obvious advantages. Millet 2016 launch price of 49 millet VR glasses toy version, launched in October the official version, millet VR team has more than 30 members.
Millet VR partner technology Li Shuxin once told Lei Feng network: In 2014, 2015, VR with the phone with the depth of optimization is the most suitable product form, is associated with the phone strong accessories.
"We did a lot of pre-research projects last year, like SDK, but lack the carrier." At the beginning of this time, one machine is too early. Then tangled in the end do not want to do one machine, if you can master, you can do one machine. But one machine on the market is clearly too early To do a qualified one machine, basically the retail price of 3000 or so. This is a fixed asset for the user, is a very serious thing. & rdquo;
And after 2016 capital hot, VR winter, the current consumer has a general understanding of the VR, the industry is gradually mature, it is clear that the VR machine has a suitable time.
Build the MI industry of MIUI
Hardware, the millet into the VR more important is the software.
Millet from the beginning when the phone box to focus on the phone for VR hardware and software optimization. The reason why do the MI industry MIUI, and do mobile phone industry MIUI logic is the same. Because we all understand the reasons, Android is not in the mainland to do the contents of the operation, which gave a lot of third-party ROM opportunities. To Daydream is the same.
MIVR in the phone will have an app, when the phone into the helmet when the app will open, the phone into the VR mode. Users wearing a helmet to see is a set of MIVR desktop. Of course, millet certainly not only do the desktop, the desktop will have VR applications such as the necessary app app.
The current mobile VR platform is widely used Google Daydream. Google released the new DaydreamVR platform at the I / O 2016 conference, which includes three parts: the smartphone standard, the helmet & amp; handle, App. Daydream developed a unified set of standards to optimize the experience of mobile VR, the major mobile phone manufacturers are also actively introduce the appropriate mobile phone. Huawei Mate 9 (OLED version) and ASUS Zenfone 3 currently support Daydream. But Daydream can only be used overseas, HTC China version of the one machine will not use GoogleDaydream but use its own content platform Viveport, the country will inevitably need their own system.
Millet before there have been revealed to do Daydream adaptation of the phone, but now there is no news.
Earlier this year, former millet vice president Hugo & Middot; Barra joined Facebook, responsible for Oculus's VR business, the cooperation with Oculus may also be related to Hugo & middot; The best-selling mobile VR products Gear VR is Samsung and Oculus co-launched, with Oculus support, millet VR one machine is likely to achieve the same experience with Gear VR.
