The Acer OJO 500 Windows Mixed Reality Headset Preview

At IFA 2018, Acer revealed the Acer OJO 500 –  the world’s first VR headset to feature a detachable design, as well as sound pipe and inter-pupillary distance adjustment technologies. What does that mean to us – the users? Let’s find out!

 

The Acer OJO 500 Windows Mixed Reality Headset

The new Acer OJO 500 headset brings several new features to the Windows Mixed Reality platform. It now features a one-of-a-kind detachable design, as well as new patented audio and visual adjustment technologies.

The Acer OJO 500 Detachable Design

The Acer OJO 500 has a unique detachable design that enables the lens and head strap to be individually removed. This makes the headset easy to store and clean – especially beneficial for businesses who want to provide customers with clean headwear for each use.

Available with either a hard or soft head strap, both options provide a snug yet comfortable fit. The soft head strap is machine washable (for a limited number of times), and the extra-large padding on the hard head strap helps the headset fit securely and firmly in place.

In addition, the mask can be flipped up, eliminating the need to remove the entire headset to answer the phone or converse with people in the room.

Inter-Pupillary Distance Adjustment Wheel

For maximum clarity, the Acer OJO 500 includes a built-in inter-pupillary distance (IPD) wheel and a patented smartphone app to measure IPD distance (the gap between the eye’s pupil and the display).

The software-assisted IPD measurement app, Acer IPD Meter, along with Acer IPD Indicator software lets you modify this distance for sharper, clearer images and a more enjoyable experience.

High-Speed, High-Resolution Displays

Two front-hinged 2.89-inch high-resolution liquid crystal displays provide a wide 100 degree field of view and deliver a 2880 x 1440 resolution.

A fast refresh rate of up to 90 Hz delivers clear and realistic images for an immersive mixed reality experience.

Sound Pipe Design Eliminates Need For Earphones

In a first for VR headsets, the integrated audio system uses a patented sound pipe design that directs sound from the built-in speakers toward the wearer’s ears. The unique sound pipe design means you can hear audio without wearing earphones, allow you to remain aware of your surroundings while still enjoying an immersive experience.

This is ideal for use in public spaces where you may not want to be totally cut off from their surroundings. The integrated audio system consists of embedded speakers, a patented sound pipe, and a built-in mic array. If you require more privacy and deeper immersion, you can use the built-in earphonethat come with the hard head strap, or an earphone of their own choice with the soft head strap.

Easy Set Up with Inside-Out Tracking

[adrotate group=”2″]

Featuring inside-out tracking, the camera is on the headset so there is no need to drill holes in a wall or set up extraneous hardware. As soon as the headset connects to a Windows Mixed Reality-ready PC, it installs the required software. Setup is quick and easy taking about 10 minutes.

The 6 degrees of freedom positional tracking includes forward / back, up / down, and left / right as well as pitch, yaw and roll. The headset comes with a 4 meter (13 feet) cable allowing a wide range of movement, and connects to a PC via HDMI 2.0, while a USB 3.0 connector downloads data.

Optional Motion Controllers

The Acer OJO 500 comes in an optional configuration that includes two Bluetooth-enabled motion controllers that sync with the headset; a Windows 10 button, touchpad, and grab button to letusers interact with digital objects in mixed reality.

The Acer OJO 500 Price + Availability

The Acer OJO 500 will be available in North America in November, starting at $399; and in EMEA in November, starting at €499.

Cerberus Mech RGB also features handy, dedicated hotkeys for performing frequently used and complex commands quickly with a single button press. On-the-fly macro recording makes it easy to program new hotkey commands without leaving the game. Recorded macros are stored in the keyboard, so they are available when using it with multiple PCs.

New Logitech G Prodigy Series Introduced

19 September 2016Logitech today announced the Prodigy Series, a family of gaming gear that was designed to enhance the way you play. The new series, which includes two mice, a keyboard and a headset, all share the same attributes of high-performance technology, exceptional comfort, and a sleek and modern design.

The Logitech G Prodigy Series includes the Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse, Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard, and the Logitech G231 Prodigy Headset.

 

Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mice

The Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse and Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse deliver long-lasting comfort, thanks to their lightweight, ergonomic design. Rubber grips on the left and right sides give you added control, and the included 10g removable weight allows you to increase the weight if you prefer a heavier mouse.

Both mice are up to eight times faster than standard mice, which means when they are moved or clicked, the on-screen response is near-instantaneous. Each mouse has advanced button tensioning that helps keep the left and right mouse buttons primed to click, reducing the force required to click, delivering exceptional responsiveness.

These mice feature the PMW3366, the world’s most advanced gaming mouse sensor, preferred by eSports pros worldwide. Exceptionally precise and consistent, the PMW3366 gives you the confidence of quicker responses and more accurate targeting.

The mice can be used directly out-of-the-box, or with LGS you can fully configure the mouse to customize your lighting, buttons and DPI settings. Specifically, the G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse is equipped with the same energy efficient, high performance wireless technology as the award-winning Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum.

The highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection has 1ms report rate for incredible lag-free responsiveness that outperforms competitive solutions, including wired ones.

Change colors to match your setup, specific games, or showcase your favorite colors, and synchronize lighting effects with other Logitech G devices using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Low light leakage around each keycap means more light comes through the lettering and less spills out around the keycaps, making it easier to find your keys in the dark.

Additionally, the dedicated media controls allow you to play, pause, skip and adjust the volume of your music with a touch of a button, without having to switch out of the game.

 

Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset

Armaggeddon Molotov-5 Headset Launched

May 20, 2016 Singapore – Homegrown gaming gear brand Armaggeddon has launched the Molotov-5 collapsible gaming headset at the very attractive price of USD29.90/S$39.90/RM99.90.

 

Molotov-5 Comes In Three Striking Colours

Alpine Allies (Blue), Scarlet Soviets (Red) and Armaggeddon (Yellow), and is lightweight and compact, making it practical for indoor and outdoor use for both PC and mobile gaming.

“This headset is the result of Team Armaggeddon’s determination to create a mobile gaming headset that is durable, portable and yet produces powerful audio,” said Ms Wanda Hu, Head of Division, Armaggeddon. “We are confident that gamers will enjoy the experience of using this headset, especially when they are on-the-go.”

With the 40mm drivers tuned to their full potential, Armaggeddon promises to deliver full-range audio capable of rivalling headsets with larger drivers at a fraction of the size and weight.The Molotov-5 features braided cables for maximum durability.

The permanently attached cables ensure that the Molotov-5 cables can be wound and unwound around the headset without damaging the inner wires, making it easy to take care of and minimising possible damage. This is unlike headsets which use detachable cords, which increase the potential of damaging the headphone and headphone jack as the gamer frequently detaches and reattaches the cable.

Armaggeddon’s full range of mobile gaming audio prioritizes creating functional and flexible audio devices which allow for gamers to use them on-the-go and at home. A simple splitter cable is provided so that all their single-jack headsets are compatible with PCs and laptops, ensuring that gamers get maximum mileage out of their purchase.
