The producer of travel cases for professional use the VRgineers and a manufacturer of VR gear and NovBox have teamed up to build a portable virtual reality solution. The ruggedized XTAL NovBox carries the VRgineers XTAL 8K 180° VR HMD (head-mounted display) and a PC based on NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX or Quadro RTX GPU that can handle VR workloads. The VR kit is aimed at those who need to use virtual reality outside of their offices or homes. VRrgineers’ enterprise-grade XTAL 8K 180° virtual reality headset comes equipped with two 3 LCD screens. Each screen offers a per-eye resolution of 3840×2160 (7680×2160 combined resolution) and a 180-degree field of view.
Point to be noted that the HMD uses proprietary patented aspherical non-Fresnel lenses features integrated hand tracking. The high resolution along with a 180-degree field of view makes the XTAL 8K 180° a performance-demanding tool. So, VRgineers bundle it with a portable IP67-certified PC powered by Intel’s Core i7-9700K or Core i9-9900K PC that is accompanied by an NVIDIA GeForce RTX (up to 2080 Ti) or Quadro RTX (up to RTX 8000) graphics card including up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and an up to 4 TB SSD. The PC is outfitted with a small Full-HD monitor as well as a keyboard with a track-pad for easier setup.
The major feature regarding the XTAL NovBox is that the entire VR setup consists of an HMD and a PC comes in a ruggedized convenient-to-travel case. It is protected against bumps of life, water, and dust. Both companies position their fully equipped high-end virtual reality station for those who need to use VR headsets outside of the room. So, think about software developers, content creators, VR presenters, and also soldiers training in rural areas. The VRgineers and Novbox didn’t disclose the price of XTAL NovBox. But, most people are talking about a unique VR headset, a high-end PC housed in a portable made-to-order case, and a specially-designed enclosure from a company that makes carrying gear for the movie industry.
