Ant vr (designed for lenovo) price in india


One of the interesting things about virtual reality is how it has enabled new ways to consume regular truyền thông media content. Although there is a lot to lớn be said for being immersed in a virtual world where you"re walking around on the surface of the moon or the bottom of the ocean, for many people, the fact that the virtual screen simulates the sensation of looking at a giant screen across the room instead of a tiny one in your hands can be a big selling point too.

That"s why there are so many VR cinema applications - for Google Cardboard và for more high-end headsets such as Samsung"s Gear VR. A virtual screen on which you can watch your regular content can make binge watching your favourite shows, even on your phone, an engaging experience that is a lot more fun than watching it on a relatively tiny handset.

That"s the idea behind TheaterMax technology included in some of Lenovo"s phones. We tested this out with the Lenovo Vibe X3, which comes with a full-HD display. That means the per-eye resolution (more on this later) is 960x1080 pixels, incidentally the same resolution that you will get with the PlayStation VR headset. It"s pretty reasonable, though our experience with Cardboard shows that a QHD display is a better bet for this level of magnification.

What is TheaterMax?The way TheaterMax works is pretty simple - just hold down the nguồn button on your phone, and in the menu, you"ll see a number of options, such as nguồn off, airplane mode, and importantly for us, VR Mode. Tapping this button splits the display into two equal halves - rotate the screen to landscape mode, và the screen is divided into left and right (splitting 1920x1080 down the middle); stick it into Lenovo"s AntVR headset (or actually any Cardboard headset) và the image blends into a single one that you can view clearly.


This is exciting because Google"s Cardboard is limited khổng lồ just a few applications - you have a number of specialised VR applications, but the number is still very limited. TheaterMax on the other hand lets you experience a large screen experience on any application you want, whether it"s a standard đoạn phim player such as MX Player, or even if you just want khổng lồ browse through your Twitter timeline - though actually interacting with the phone when it"s in the headset is not ideal, so really, this is best for watching videos on the big screen.

DesignThe AntVR headset looks pretty big, but thanks to a folding design actually takes up less space than a cardboard Google Cardboard headset. Still, it"s not exactly something that you can slip into your pocket, though an included pouch means that you should feel okay about keeping it in your bag.

The design is familiar enough if you"ve used other Cardboard headsets - there"s a clasp on the front for your phone, lenses in the back, và a nose rest. This particular headset uses a hinged thiết kế for the front, that folds up when not in use. The đứng top hinge is spring-loaded, which means that it will hold your phone securely in place when in use, but this also means that it is extremely difficult lớn attach the phone to the headset. It would take multiple attempts & a full minute lớn get the phone khổng lồ sit securely in place even after a whole week of using the headset.

There is also an elastic strap attached to lớn the back of the headset - slip this around your head and you get a true handsfree experience. That"s pretty good actually, và the overall build quality is also a lot better than most similarly priced headsets we"ve seen, so you should feel comfortable using it without holding the AntVR headset up. However, this feels a little tight against the head, và loosening the straps made the headset start to slip, so you"re better off with the mild discomfort.

The back, where you put your face into the headset, is also really well padded - this is a huge plus, considering how tightly you wear the headset.

Unlike most Google Cardboard headsets that have round lenses, the AntVR set uses square lenses - according khổng lồ the company, this gives it a 100-degree field of view, & it is also comfortable enough to wear with your glasses on, another definite plus. It"s also worth pointing out that the huge lenses are also a dust and fingerprint magnet. Luckily, the headset doesn"t just come with a case, but also a microfibre cloth to help you keep the headset (and your phone"s screen) clean.


PerformanceThere are two things lớn consider when you think of the AntVR headset"s performance. First - how does it work as a Google Cardboard headset; that is to say, how good is it for the Google Cardboard applications, the VR part of the experience.

The strap và padding means that it is a well made headset that you can use fully hands-free - it was great for watching 360-degree videos on YouTube, and for playing VR games, because you don"t have to lớn keep holding your hands up.

It"s painful to get your phone in there, but once you"re clasped in place, the fact that the sides are open makes it easy for you lớn reach in with a finger and touch the screen, so you can launch apps without having to take the headset off. The downside is that if you"re using the headset in a lit up environment, the ambient light will always be present, which can lessen the sense of immersion, & also negatively impact the visuals. The other issue is that the kích cỡ of the lenses is a little different from most Cardboard sets, và this means that you might have khổng lồ fiddle with the positioning of the phone a little from time to time for the optimum image.


Aside from its performance as a Cardboard headset though, you also need to lớn consider Lenovo"s own TheaterMax software. This is fairly unique as far as we are aware - it allows you khổng lồ experience all of apk through the headset. As we mentioned earlier, this, obviously isn"t very practical for something lượt thích browsing through Twitter, but if you just want to watch a movie in your usual video player or through the Netflix app, then TheaterMax is an easy way to lớn get a big screen experience. In practice, the simulated screen is huge - it felt like we were sitting right in front of a big screen TV. It might be more comfortable to watch a đoạn phim on your tablet"s screen, but we found ourselves using the headset most nights anyway.

The only thing lớn remember is that when you"re using TheaterMax, there is no VR - there is no motion tracking, so you can"t look around và get a view of different parts of the "screen". With VR Cinema on Cardboard, or Oculus Cinema on the Gear VR, you can look around the virtual "hall" that you"re watching the movie in, & this further makes the experience feel real, and the screen bigger. With TheatreMax, it still beats a big screen, but you never feel lượt thích you"ve been transported into a cinema.


VerdictThe AntVR is a somewhat oversized piece of hardware that is nonetheless easy to use, và well built. While we have a few concerns about the design, overall, it works really well, & if you can get it bundled with one of Lenovo"s phones, then it usually ships for just Rs. 500. If you don"t get it with a phone, you"ll need to pay Rs. 1,299 for the headset.At the bundle price, it"s a great buy, and while Lenovo"s TheaterMax isn"t VR, it"s an excellent addition for those times when you just want to watch a đoạn clip on the "big" screen. Even at the full retail price, there aren"t too many competing products, so the headset is certainly worth considering.
