Hands-on with Acer's OJO 500 detachable Windows Mixed Reality headset (video)

Amidst a slew of new laptops Acer showed off at IFA 2018, the company also unveiled its latest Windows Mixed Reality headset: The OJO 500. Setting itself apart from other headsets on the market, the highlight of the OJO 500 is its detachable design, allowing for easier cleaning by separating the lens housing from the head strap.

The headset packs some other interesting bits as well, including an intriguing "soundpipe audio design," along with features that help you more accurately adjust the gap between your pupils and the display to get the clearest picture possible.

We had a chance to go hands-on with the OJO 500 on the show floor at IFA 2018, and you can check out our initial impressions above.

  • But you can already adjust the inter-ocular gap in the system.
  • Only the Odyssey had hardware IPD adjustment. The software adjusted IPD does not work well.
  • OJO means "eye" in Spanish, they might have named it for that. It's pronounced with a strong "J" sound.
  • Wow, what's that bicycle software on 1:00? I want that.
  • It's called VirZoom.
