Virtual reality (VR) has never gone mainstream and there are few obvious reasons. For one, price is a barrier to entry as most VR headsets are expensive. But lack of depth in content and what VR users call the “screen door” effect is another. Fortunately, there could now be a solution for that last part.
In case you don’t know what the “screen door” effect is, it’s basically the phenomena where you can see gaps between pixels when viewing a VR headset. This is due to the display being within close distance to your eyes, yet not having the pixel density to make it look complete. According to Engadget, Samsung and Stanford University have developed a new type of display with up to 10000 pixels per inch (PPI).
As you can tell, that’s way more PPI compared to any existing VR headset on the market at the moment. This new type of OLED display borrows a concept from solar panels. It has a reflective layer known as an “optical metasurface”, which takes advantage of how light can reflect on certain types of surfaces. In doing so, it allows certain colours to ‘resonate’ in the pixels. If you’re curious about the technicalities behind it, there’s an IEEE Spectrum article that goes into a bit more detail.
With that said, what do you think about VR technology? What’s the biggest factor stopping you from buying a VR headset? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to TechNave.com for more news like this.
We previously did two camera tests for the Galaxy S20 Ultra on its 108MP camera and Bright Night mode, which we thought came out quite well. So for this round, we have taken the Galaxy S20 FE out for a spin to test three features – Space Zoom, Single Take and Night Mode. By the way, the Galaxy S20 FE features a 12MP (main) + 8MP (telephoto) + 12MP (ultrawide) triple rear camera. Without further ado, here are the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE camera test results!
Previously, we wrote about how Mystic Bronze came to be the theme for the Samsung Galaxy Note20 series and it was quite an interesting insight into the makings of the device. So in this article, the next behind-the-scenes that we want to talk about is the Galaxy Z Fold2, which appeared alongside the Note series recently. If you’ve always wondered how much improvement Samsung made on this foldable phone, read on below on the making of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2!
