With all the recent releases of the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift, the market for virtual reality is getting more crowded than ever. And so it is a perfect time for Google to come up with its April Fools’ Day product, which is “the world’s first actual reality headset”.
VR has enabled us to experience many things, starting from the bottom of the ocean to the surface of other planets. However, virtual reality can never equate with the things we experience in real life. So, Google came up with the idea of Cardboard Plastic, which is about to overcome the flaws of VR.
Cardboard Plastic really lives up to the expectations by providing 360-degree spatially accurate sound, 4D integrated perspective, advanced haptics for realistic touch sensations, and 20/20 resolution. It will let you notice what you see, do, and feel more than ever before.
The headset is made of polymethyl methacrylate, which makes it waterproof, lightweight, and works wirelessly without any batteries. It works with every single app and with every single device, without even requiring an internet connection.
It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it is, because it’s a clear block of plastic! The technology of actual reality is as powerful as humans, but surely not more than that. It seamlessly fits in all the aspects of your life. You can zoom in to get a bigger view just by going closer to the object, use it with a camera to take pictures, and also switch between portrait modes, just by tilting your head.
One of the most significant improvements that Plastic has got over Cardboard VR headset is adding the head strap for a more convenient use. The strap allows the users to use Plastic during real reality experiences, without any hassle.
Google may also come up other tints and accessories to add to its newly launched actual reality headset. With this headset, you will never miss a moment unless you blink!
