After their experience, the guests and pros spoke highly of its performance. They believed that it was an extraordinary breakthrough for Idealens II to be comparable with the experience offered by the top-level PC grade VR machines given the device's achievement of overcoming the environmental limitations for use.
Technological advantages are a main reason for the Idealens II all-in-one VR to gain good recognition from the professionals. Though a cool exterior and a smart and compact body the device has, the hardware strength cannot be downplayed. Through a vivid speech, Brent Jentzsch unveiled the advanced technologies adopted by Idealens II one by one.
Among the technical features, the most attractive one is its unique innovations on exterior design and wearable technology. Unlike PC grade VR devices, it is an important technical challenge for the all-in-one devices to meet the requirements for use in mobility conditions, while the wearable solution demonstrated by Idealens II is a very excellent one in this regard.
According to Brent Jentzsch, Idealens II is the first across the globe to have employed a solution of rear battery pack for balance weight for the all-in-one VR headset. With a weight of 320g for the main body and a mounting way featuring a steel structure with a spring mechanism, the Idealens II provides excellent comfort for wearing, and the device provides the most reasonable design for wearable solution in the industry.
According to user feedback, Idealens II is the best VR product in terms of comfort among all its VR counterparts. The users do not need any manual adjustment, and they can enter the breathtaking virtual world instantly. Considering different uses, Idealens II provides multiple methods for wearing, such as game mode and cinema mode.
Comparatively, professionals from the United States are more concerned with the optical performance of Idealens II. This area has always been the expertise of Idealens. The FOV (field of view) of Idealens II has reached 120 degrees, which is the maximum value among those of all types of VR devices currently available on the market.
Supporting the 120-degree FOV are two AMOLED screens of low persistence, with a refresh rate at 90Hz. Thanks to the base algorithm development competence accumulated perennially by the Idealens team, the device is supplied with the advanced technologies of low lapse and the ATW (Asynchronous Time Warp), which can effectively reduce the dizziness during use due to display delay. The overall delay can be controlled within 17ms. With top-speed response, you may experience a virtual world with greater smoothness and immersion.
The professionals interviewed at the site after using the device all said that Idealens II provided great immersion. One of the experts remarked, "The super-wide field of view and splendid image quality instantly took me into an unknown world, in which I felt as if I were personally on the scene. After I removed the glasses, I was in a trance for a few seconds as I had returned to the world of reality. It was truly amazing!"
