We saw Apple showcasing AR and VR through thier products since a couple of years but it seems like now they’re working on a standalone AR/VR Headset.

CNET is reporting that Apple may be taking this to the next level. In addition to AR, the company is said to be working on a virtual reality (VR) headset that combines both technologies for a singular immersive experience.

The product is Codenamed T288. The report states that Apple plans on building a headset with an 8K display in each eye, making it a whopping 16K display on the headset. But that’s not all, it also says that it’ll be a standalone device, not requiring a Mac or iPhone to power it. The projected release date is sometime in 2020.

At the same time, the company is also reportedly working on a pair of AR glasses and has already begun talking to component makers about the manufacturing of such a product. This should be taken with a grain of salt as Apple could potentially kill the project at any time. However, it is interesting to take a peek into what the company is doing behind closed doors, and potentially a future product that we can all get excited about.

VR is interesting too. Apple has in the past said that AR is the future, while not focusing much on VR. With that in mind, having a 16K display for your VR experience would truly bring the technology to the next level as most VR headsets hardly break the 1440p/2K resolution, and most of those require your smartphone or computer to operate.

Plex VR movie app, which has been exclusive to Google’s Daydream app platform till now, is now coming to Oculus and Gear VR devices. Plex has now covered three major VR platforms, Google Facebook and Samsung.

The app works same on all three platforms, however social features of the app have not been implemented yet on Gear VR. You can partner up with up to 4 of your friends and watch a movie together in a virtual apartment, drive-in movie theatre or just a blank screen.

The missing social features on Gear VR, Voice Chat and Watch together will be coming to the app in coming weeks.

Earlier this year, Plex jumped into VR with a Google Daydream app that puts you and up to four of your buddies into a virtual movie screening room. Now the media server company is bringing Plex VR to two more platforms: Gear VR and Oculus.

Like other similar offerings, the Plex VR media center puts you in the center of a virtual environment with a big, floating screen in the middle. Part of the fun, as usual, comes from the relatively high level of interactivity of each of the environments. Plex VR offers three such venues – a luxury apartment and a deep space scene known as “the void,” which are free, and a drive-in theatre, which you need to have a Plex subscription in order to use.

Watching content on your own is free, but if you want to enjoy videos in VR with your friends, you need a Plex Pass. The platform currently allows users to invite up to four other friends to catch a movie on Daydream, so it’s likely support the same number of guests on the Gear VR as well, The Verge reports.
 Just like on the Daydream version, Plex users on Samsung or Facebook’s VR platforms can watch videos in a virtual apartment, drive-in movie theater or just a blank void.
Watch together, including Voice Chat on Plex VR will be available on Gear VR within a few weeks. To know about hardware requirements and help with Plex VR go here.

Mozilla, the face behind Firefox, Firefox OS, Thunderbird and more are bringing in a new product, a web browser made for virtual and augmented reality headsets. Named Firefox Reality, this new browser was designed ground up to work as a standalone browser on mixed reality headsets.

Mozilla believes that future of the web will be largely based on VR and AR interactions, hence having a dedicated browser was necessary. Mozilla Firefox is a popular browser for PCs, second to Google Chrome in terms of usage share. Mozilla will be releasing a new browser under the same name but added “Reality” part. Firefox Reality is based on existing Firefox browser and their experimental web engine Servo.

Here’s Firefox Reality in action:

Mozilla claims Firefox Reality is:

  • This is the first cross-platform browser for mixed reality.
  • This is the only open source browser for mixed reality.
  • This is a browser that is built by a company that respects your privacy.
  • This is a browser that will be fast.
  • This is a browser that is built for the future.
  • Browsers are the future of mixed reality.

Mozilla will be releasing more updates on the project in the upcoming weeks. As of now, they’ve released the full source code, of which interested developers can take a look at this GitHub repository.

You can learn more about Firefox Reality in this announcement post here.

Usually, people use computer or smartphone to power their VR experience. But today for the first time ever, Oculus Go will be fully standalone VR headset. No need of connecting to PC, no need of inserting a smartphone. Just turn it on and you are ready to immerse yourself in the virtual world. It will cost you only $199, which is surely an eye candy. However, the pre-order is not up yet as the device is yet to go through FCC.

Today we shared two significant milestones in one of our largest areas of development. Standalone is new category designed to bring more freedom and accessibility to VR. Without a cable or the need for a mobile phone, standalone headsets represent a totally new phase of VR hardware.

Introducing Oculus Go*

Our first standalone product is Oculus Go—the easiest way to jump into VR. It ships early next year, starting at $199 USD. It’s awesome for watching movies or concerts, playing games, or just hanging out with your friends in VR.

This all-in-one device makes VR more accessible than ever and represents a huge leap forward in comfort, visual clarity, and ease-of-use.

The headset is super lightweight, and the new fabric used for the facial interface is soft and breathable.

The high-resolution fast-switch LCD screen dramatically improves visual clarity and reduces screen door effect. And the next-generation lenses are our best ever—offering a wide field of view with significantly reduced glare.

Oculus Go also ships with integrated spatial audio. The speakers are built right into the headset, transporting you straight into VR and making the headset easy to share with someone else. If you need it, there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening.

Gear VR and Oculus Go apps are binary compatible, and they share the same controller input set—that means developers building for Gear VR are already building for Oculus Go. As an added plus, the best of our mobile VR content library will be available to everyone on day one.

Oculus Go pushes the envelope of what’s possible at such an accessible price point, and we can’t wait to share more early next year.

The new motion controllers are designed to work with a coming range of headsets from companies like Acer, who will bundle with Windows 10 to launch the headset at $399 this holiday. Microsoft unveiled this today at the Build which is one of the main feature of the ‘Mixed Reality’.

Each controller features a thumbstick, a touch pad, trigger and grip buttons. One key selling point for the controllers is that they don’t rely on external sensors apart from a Windows 10 mixed reality headset. As long as the controllers are within the headset’s field of vision, they should be precisely tracked. Microsoft is hoping that makes for a simpler set-up process than existing VR headsets, but it raises questions about how well developers would be able to track hand motions outside the player’s view.

We now need to see how this headsets pave the path to the future that includes the Mixed Reality. Lets hope to get some proper headsets by OEMs at a decent price, unlike the Hololens.

OnePlus finally announces when we can expect their long-awaited flagship successor

It’s been about a week, give or take, since OnePlus began teasing the upcoming OnePlus 2. Since then we’ve learned about the new Snapdragon 810 v2.1 that will be powering the device, as well as the new USB Type-C connector that will be included. Amongst all the hype surrounding the phone, we’ve yet to see much in the way of a launch date, until today that is. Mark your calendars, people: July 27.
That’s right, we will finally get to see the device a month from now at a launch event taking place at 7pm PST. But the manner in which this will take place is quite different, if not a little unorthodox. OnePlus is planning to launch the phone completely using virtual reality, letting users stream the event live around the world with their own VR viewer based on Google Cardboard 2.0. The company states, “A VR launch lets you stand right next to our team and our fans as we unveil our new flagship/ You’ll be able to look around as you check out the phone in a new way and maybe even find a few hidden Easter eggs.” It’s definitely quite an interesting feat, especially since they’re offering the OnePlus Cardboard for free (just pay for shipping).
oneplus-cardboard-vr-1024x520According to OnePlus, the Cardboard has been designed with quality in mind, offering a stronger, more compact, and cleaner product. It was built with thick cardboard coated with a special film that repels dirt and oils. It is also 20% smaller than other Cardboard variations, and can perfectly hold devices up to 6″ in size. OnePlus put a lot into its production, and even though they’re technically losing money on it, the investment is apparently worth it. “There will come a day in which we will be able to travel the world and experience amazing things without ever leaving the comfort of our homes. OnePlus Cardboard exists to drive this idea forward.”

We’re definitely excited to get more details on the launch of the OnePlus 2 and this new VR experience. The company is already preparing another announcement on the 29th which could possibly give us those details, or provide us with another OnePlus 2 spec. Either way, we’ll be on the lookout for what’s to come!
