The LG 360 VR has been announced and unlike other smartphone VR devices, consists of a pair of goggles that links to the new LG G5 phone via a cable. This means it’s much smaller and lighter than many other VR devices, but it does have it’s drawbacks.
“This was more like wearing a pair of opaque eyeglasses; allowing light to gush in from the top and bottom of the device,” report ARSTechnica. “For the most part, the headset didn’t work yet, but it did briefly mirror the G5’s home screen when we plugged in the USB cable. The display area is about what you would expect from looking at the outside of the device. It’s a long, thin screen the fills maybe half your vertical vision. It won’t be a device for immersion, but LG says it will ‘simulate a 130-inch TV viewed from two meters.'”
