At the 2016 Game Developer Conference last week, Sulon Technologies revealed their upcoming Sulon Q headset. They claim that it is the world’s first and only all-in-one, tether-free, “wear and play” headset for virtual reality, augmented reality, and spatial computing. Yes, it supports both VR and AR. And best of all, it is powered by Windows 10.
Enjoy holographic computing interfaces once reserved for science fiction by placing applications in space in your own living room with a large, immersive 110-degree field-of-view. Multi-task like a professional putting transparent or opaque windows where you want using gestures or the wireless keyboard and mouse provided in the box to do things like surf the web in the Microsoft Edge browser or watch videos using Windows Media Player.
It offers console-quality graphics and powerful processing, thanks to the AMD FX-8800P processor at up to 35W with Radeon R7 Graphics leveraging AMD’s Graphics Core Next architecture. It supports latest graphics APIs including DirectX 12 and Vulkan, and can render stunning videogame console-quality visuals on a beautiful 2560×1440 OLED display.
“Virtual and augmented reality is clearly moving beyond near-future novelty to a useful computing reality with new VR and AR hardware that brings to life the best of Windows 10,” said Peter Han, vice president, Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp. “Windows 10 is the best platform for VR and AR innovation, and the Sulon Q™ headset is a great example of how immersive computing can bring a fresh perspective to the familiar Windows 10 productivity that customers trust and depend on in work and in play.”
More details on the Sulon Q headset will be revealed in the coming months and the release is expected late Spring. Watch a demo of Sulon Q below.
