DJI has just announced a virtual reality headset called Goggles, which provides users with one first-person view of what exactly your drone is recording. At first glance it may seem almost identical to the Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR earphones (except for the color), but make no mistakes, the DJI Goggles will not provide a 360-degree video feed and this is exactly why we call it VR-like . Having said that, the company claims that the headset displays the same 1080p footage on each eye, which makes you feel like you're watching a 216-inch TV from a distance of about 10 feet.
The first-person view is not the only feature that the company boasts of. DJI Goggles also offers head localization features. The headset will allow pilots to control i drone camera movements by simply moving your head in the desired direction. In addition to this, a touchpad integrated directly into the glasses that will allow you to access some key smart functions as requested by DJI.
The company promises a low latency transmission of just 110 ms and Goggles offers 720p visibility at 60 fps if you don't want to lose frame rate and 1080p 30 fps visibility if you want a higher resolution. DJI Goggles sar compatible with Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 series and Inspire 2 . However, only Mavic Pro will be able to take advantage of the OcuSync transmission system and synchronize with the headset wirelessly. The drones of the Inspire 2 and Phantom 4 series will be able to connect via the controller's USB port.
The headset is currently available for presale and will begin shipping in late May for an asking price of $ 449. If the Goggles is a worthy addition to your DJI drone, something you can only answer for, as it will depend on your personal preferences.
