We have recently reported on an interesting rise of VR-based enthusiasm on the Eastern market. Last week we covered Xiaomi’s recent mobile VR headset that will be taking on GearVR and today we bring you another brand, whose name has popped up over various social media channels these past few months.

That player eyeForce – the outcome of a group of Chineese engineers and their years-deep study into virtual reality. Together, the team has published several papers on the subject and are keen to get their hands dirty with an actual product.

Today their Kickstarter campaign for their angle-focused HMD went live with this interesting video:

210° Field of View

EyeForce brands itself on its wide 210° field of view which allows the user to experience a more accurate and immersive representation of what actual sight looks like. While other brands have weighed in on this part of the experience (StarVR, we’re looking at you), eyeForce shows us that the Chinese market might be up for the challenge.

Roadmap

Before we press on, we better highlight that the production of eyeForce is in it’s early stages. At the moment, the final mechanical an electronics are being handled, and as we move towards the end of the year, tests and component sourcing will be on their agenda.

According to the team’s Kickstarter page, an ambitious path lies ahead, and shipping might begin as early as February 2017. If the team manages to stick to the timeframe, we will be covering more of them as their project reaches its production phase. Until that time, it’s exciting to have another player in the game, and we’re glad to see the Chinese market expand the way it is.
