CES 2020 Interview: Nolo VR’s 6DoF, 5G Vision
It’s almost the end of VRFocus’ selection of CES 2020 interviews which have been running for the past few weeks. The massive tech event which starts early every January in Las Vegas had quite the selection of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) products available. From new hardware like the Pimax 8K headsets to software solutions such as Spatial’s collaborative tool, there were lots going on. Chinese manufacturer Nolo VR was on hand to showcase its latest products, with Senior Sales Director Xi Chen available to explain more about them.
One of Nolo VR’s major show announcements was its 6-degrees of freedom (6DoF) solution for Huawei VR Glass. Called Nolo CV1 Air, the kit is comprised of a sensor bar which attaches to the top of Huawei’s glasses, an additional sensor which is placed in front of the user (on a shelf for example) and two wireless controllers.
The whole system is designed to support SteamVR and mobile 6DoF gameplay, with the show demo using BoxVR to demonstrate the tracking. From initial inspection, VRFocus found that it worked fluidly enough, even on faster-paced sections.
CES 2020 was filled with 5G talk and the Nolo VR stand was no different. The company also showcased its Nolo N2 VR headset and Nolo CV1 Pro tracking kit. A smartphone VR gaming solution with 6DoF control, it’s designed to provide PC VR quality inside low-cost solution, all thanks to 5G and Cloud VR services. Nolo VR has started cooperation with China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom on these services.
The Nolo CV1 Pro improves upon the previous Nolo CV1 in a number of ways, providing higher positioning precision, refresh rate, and lower latency for a smoother gameplay experience. In the interview below Chen goes into further detail regarding the new products and what they’re capable of.
