  • Over 100 China makers rushing into VR device market
    Max Wang, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 20 April 2016]
    More than 100 companies in China have stepped into the development of virtual reality (VR) devices, focusing on entry-level products initially, according to trade sources.

    A number of vendors showcased their VR products at the recently concluded Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2016 (Spring Edition), with FOB prices of entry-level models ranging from US$2-3 per unit and mid-range ones at US$25-80, the sources indicated.

    China-based makers are taking Google's CardBoard as reference design and turning out their VR devices using a plastic helmet attached with a pair of lenticular sheets for the low-end market, indicated the sources.

    Some vendors were showcasing VR products for the mid-range market, allowing their devices to connect handsets with an USB interface or enabling to view VR content via a built-in memory slot. Some mid-range helmets also have an LCD display designed for use with headphones.

    However, no China-based firms have rolled out VR devices comparable to HTC's recently released HTC Vive, which features external laser sensors and hand-held controllers, the sources commented.
