Dell Visor Black Friday Review:
It is a good-looking piece of apparel and the design puts the focus on both inside-out tracking cameras built into the faces of the headphone. This promising tech tracks the area around you and monitors how it changes as you move rather than tracking the position of the headset in regard to external detectors like the majority of the HMD contest does.
It must be noted however that the IPD isn’t flexible in hardware. It’s a software control, but this was hard to decode and no directions were given during setup.
Now afterward, focusing especially on the Dell from this point on, the Visor came in a very sturdy box topped with a lid which was nearly too well-fitting. Trying to start the box was a small pain due to the friction between the sides of the top and the sides of the underside. Once the box has been opened everything was pretty much just sitting; there were very few frills on the inside of the box. Everything sat in its appointed position in indentions from the add that sat in the bottom of the box. Every one of the 2 controls was in a foam bag, like the kind that wires sometimes come in.
Dell’s PAX demo had me playing through Superhot VR, which is a somewhat active game. I had been ducking, kneeling, squatting, leaning, and so to evade enemy snakes, but the lenses never fogged up, nor was my face covered in perspiration afterward. It gets hot, but air stations close to the nose and in the center of the forehead help keep you slightly cooler than the competition does.
Speaking of the controllers, from a general design perspective they more closely prefer the HTC Vive’s controllers than those of the Rift. I must admit that I am not a fan of this and kind of controller. The beauty behind the Rift’s knuckle-band layout is that there is a cozy feeling to how the controller sits at the hand despite the palms facing downward and the hand completely open. Trying to achieve this with all the wand controllers results is simply dropping them. Some kind of after-market control holding glove (I envision it to be like a pair of fingerless gloves) would do well for this controller style.
Regardless, the controllers have all two appropriate buttons on them, activate (index finger) and traction (middle finger). Besides that, each controller also has a depressible analog stick along with a trackpad, with the latter using the equivalent of five additional buttons under it depending on where the trackpad was pressed down.
The picture quality wasn’t actually a clear advance over the contest I’ve tried but was very comfortable to use and that I had no eye strain or dizziness after a very long session. When the next gen of much higher resolution, fast-refreshing displays become accessible, immersive experiences are really going to create an impact on the public who quite rightly are somewhat underwhelmed by what is on offer today. No matter how good the game or the surroundings you are immersed in, poor screen quality retains the consumer back from buying into the entire thing. The Visor has good screens and among the most comfortable to use for long periods I have tested so no real complaints, for after!
Sadly, the variation of the Visor I utilized was not hooked up to whatever. However, Dell says that the headset is designed to work with Windows 10 and can operate virtual and mixed-reality programs. While the 1440 x 1440 lenses at the device are actually greater than what you’ll find in either the Rift or the Vive (1080 x 1200 per eye), in case you are using the Visor using a platform with integrated graphics, it’s not going to be as clear as the former systems. Which means that for the best experience, you’ll need a laptop or desktop computer with discrete graphics, which kind of defeats the purpose of Dell’s low-cost VR/MR option.
