It has a wide field of view (FOV) of 110 degrees, further enhancing the viewing experience by eliminating the so-called “screen door effect”. Lag or latency is almost nonexistent, with an ultra-low latency of just under 10 milliseconds. In terms of ergonomics and comfort, the pair of VR glasses uses a skin-friendly material to help with prolonged use while maintaining a comfortable VR experience. It can also be worn without prescription glasses, as the built-in optics are adjustable within a range of 58-70 millimeters towards the user’s eyes to aid in vision correction while enjoying VR.
