There is very little effort required to set up the device. Like the Gear VR for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, buyers just need to slide their cell phone into the headset, which has openings for the G3’s back cam and volume controls. It likewise offers the same neodymium ring magnet displayed by Google Cardboard, which enables the gadget to employ the smartphone’s whirligig sensor. This in turn lets the users choose menus without needing to touch the screen.
The VR for G3 additionally exploits smartphones 1W speaker with Boost AMP and can be linked with a Bluetooth speaker to give a better virtual reality experience. The VR device is also accompanies by a free virtual reality game dubbed Robobliteration, which can be acquired through an in-box QR code.
Chris Yie, VP and head of advertising at LG, says the organization plans to make its first stride into the virtual reality industry as it intends to give general shoppers more access to a developing tech. Truth being said, VR technology is not really cheap or easy to get by most mainstream buyers. The Oculus Rift that the Oculus VR is chipping away at is still some months away from a full customer dispatch, while Samsung’s Gear VR costs $310 on Amazon.
Chris Yie noted:
“By leveraging Google Cardboard, not only are regular consumers able to participate in the VR experience, we’ll be able to introduce this technology to future developers who may one day show us how VR can be used to improve our lives.”
LG has did not reveal any price for the VR for G3 headset. However, the organization has guaranteed to make the gadget free for all new buyers of its leader smartphone. Apart from that, the release date of the device is also unknown, despite the fact that the company says it will reveal the VR for G3 in “select markets” in the next 30 days or so.
Google completely back the LG’s attack into virtual reality and trusts that its economy-sized framework, rather than Oculus VR’s carefully enhanced approach, will contribute fuel the demand for different organizations to begin placing their bets on this industry.
