Acer OJO 500 Windows Mixed Reality Headset Now Available in Malaysia

Acer is mixing it up in the VR arena

The successor to the Mixed Reality headset, the Acer OJO 500, which features a one-of-a-kind detachable design that offers superior flexibility, comfort, and hygiene, is now available in Malaysia.

The lens of the Acer OJO 500 can be detached along with the choice of hard or washable soft head strap that comes with extra large padding for added comfort while guiding the lens to the correct position. This unique detachable design enables the lens and head strap to be individually removed, making the headset easy to store and clean. In addition to this convenience, the design also makes it easy to replace specific components while maintaining hygiene. This is especially beneficial when the device is used in a shared environment such as in a cyber café offering virtual reality (VR) gameplay,

The Acer OJO 500 is also the first VR headset to offer an integrated “sound pipe” and a smartphone app to measure pupil distance. The clarity of images is accorded by a built-in interpupillary distance (IPD) wheel and a smartphone app, Acer IPD Meter, to measure IPD distance (the gap between the eye’s pupil and the display), and lets the wearer modify this distance for sharper, clearer images and a more immersive experience.

 

The immersive experience is enhanced by the patented integrated audio system that directs sound from the built-in speakers towards the wearer’s ears. This means users can hear audio without wearing 2 earphones, thereby allowing them to maintain awareness of their surroundings while enjoying an immersive experience.

The Acer OJO 500 comes with two Bluetooth enabled motion controllers that sync with the headset. However, it is recommended to be paired with computers that meet the minimum requirements for the best gaming experience.Retailing at MYR 1,899, the Acer OJO 500 is available for immediately at Acer official online store or at Rextech in Puchong.
