1. Why can't I use phone-based VR like Google Cardboard or Gear VR for my spa?
In a commercial environment, phone-based VR systems pose a number of problems:
• Overheating: Phone based systems overheat after 15-20min of continuous usage. This causes the experience to stutter, degrade in performance, and can lead to user discomfort from the heat itself.
• Low performance: The vast majority of phone-based systems have lower resolution, refresh rate and processing power than standalone headsets. This means users are more likely to experience low quality visuals, performance lag and nausea.
• Less hygienic: Most phone based headsets come with soft cushioning which easily absorbs sweat and is hard to wipe down. Phone based headsets have more moving parts and small nooks that make them harder to clean properly.
• Cumbersome: Starting up and shutting down a phone based headset takes more time and is more complicated than a standalone headset. This results in lost time for the customer, and confused employees.
2. Why shouldn't I use an Oculus Go for my spa?
In a commercial environment the Oculus Go poses several problems:
• Lower resolution: The Oculus Go has a resolution of 2.5K (2560 x 1440), while the headsets we use are 4K (3840 x 2160). This means pixels on the Oculus Go screen are more visible, leading to a lower sense of immersion.
• Slower processing speed: The Oculus Go uses the Snapdragon 821 CPU, while our headset uses the Snapdragon 835. As such, our headset's processor is 27% faster than the Oculus Go.
• Heavier: The Oculus Go weighs 468g, while our headset weighs 278g. This means our headset is 40% lighter, making it significantly more comfortable to wear.
• Less hygienic: Oculus Go comes with soft cushioning that easily absorbs sweat, skin debris and dirt and is difficult to wipe down properly.
• Smaller battery life: The Oculus Go has a 2hr battery life, and requires 3hrs to fully recharge. This can be a problem serving multiple clients on the same day. Our headsets have 50% more battery life than the Oculus Go.
• Lower immersion/wired audio: The Oculus Go does not support Bluetooth headphones. This means you either have to use the low-immersion in-built speakers, or use wired headphones. Our package comes with wireless noise cancelling headphones for the easiest, highest quality audio immersion.
• Unrestricted open store: The Oculus Go can't be locked into a single application and its home screen is the Oculus app store. This means customers can exit the app/experience and get lost in the app store or even download other apps/content.
• Cumbersome: The Oculus Go requires the synchronisation and use of a controller. This adds additional setup time, can confuse new users, is easily misplaced, requires additional batteries while not being necessary for a relaxation experience.
