Xiaomi recently announced its new VR headset and it has been on talks for a while now.Made out of Lycra and with a zipper to insert your phone, Xiaomi’s Mi VR headset looks like a modified version of Google Cardboard and coming from Xiaomi this headset is worth a try.It is made out of Lycra which implies must be pretty comfortable to wear.
The company has released it’s headset for the beta testers and claims that about a million people signed up in the first 8 hours after the registrations was opened for the beta testing, however they only chose a couple of tens of thousands enabling few people the hands on experience of the Xiaomi Mi VR headset.
The Xioami Mi VR headset is going to be pretty cheap once the consumer version comes out, however for the beta testers the price was just 20 cents and this price wont last long once the consumer version is out.It can easily accommodate any phone between 4.7 inches to 5 inches and is made with the intention to make it available to a larger section of people.
Many people claim that the Xioami MI VR headset can get into the competition of the VR headsets once it is out and in a few places had it compared with the Oculus Rift as well! I’m not sure about that comparison though until I get my hands on this VR headset and only with time we would all be able to see how good enough it is in the competition.
