The Sulon Q delivers immersive augmented and virtual reality, no PC required

Sulon is offering a sneak peek of the Q, the company's virtual and augmented reality headset. Unlike the Oculus Rift, which is a VR headset, or the Microsoft HoloLens, which focuses on AR, the Sulon Q incorporates both, and is being billed as an "all-in-one, tether-free, 'wear and play'" headset, which also incorporates spacial computing features that work with Windows 10. Powered by an AMD processor, Sulon says the Q boasts "console-quality" graphics, without needing to be attached to a computer or console.

From Sulon:

The Sulon Q™ headset harnesses the latest in processor technology using the recently launched AMD FX-8800P processor at up to 35W with Radeon™ R7 Graphics leveraging AMD's Graphics Core Next architecture. The full performance of 4 compute cores and 8 GPU cores are unlocked through a revolutionary Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA), enabling the cores to share memory to work together for dramatic performance and efficiency

Sulon is showing off the Q at GDC 2016. Pricing and release information for the headset has not yet been announced.
