I’ve been thinking about how to classify VR and AR headsets and am starting to look at them along three dimensions (no pun intended):
- VR vs AR
- PC-powered vs. Phone-powered vs. Self-powered. This looks at where the processing and video generation is coming from. Is it connected to a PC? Is it using a standard phone? Or does it embed processing inside the headset
- Wide field of view vs. Narrow FOV
This generates a total of 2 x 3 x 2 = 12 options as follows
Looking forward to feedback and comments.
