How to Get the Most Out of Your VR Experience
LUMIN, Texas — A tech startup has announced a partnership with the United Technologies Corporation (UTX) to create a device for the future of virtual reality, and the price?
It will cost you $100,000.
Lumen Technology, an Austin-based company, has been developing a new light-emitting diode (LED) display, the first ever for a smartphone or tablet.
The device, dubbed the LUMin, is an affordable light-absorbing display for smartphones and tablets.
Its makers claim that it will make mobile phones and tablets “less expensive to make.”
The LUMine, which will be released on April 21, will be powered by an ARM Cortex-A53 chip, which is an ARMv7-based processor.
But it is not just about price.
“The LUMines will offer an affordable solution for the next generation of VR, from the very low end to the very high end, from smartphones to tablets,” said Kevin Schulze, a product marketing manager at LUMins, in a statement.
This means the device, which can be used to watch movies and play games, will work for all price points from the mid-range up to the high-end.
It will also offer “immersive and highly personalized entertainment experiences,” according to the company.
As part of the partnership, the Lumine will be available at the following retailers: Best Buy, Target, Amazon, Best Buy Mobile, Walgreens, Toys R Us, Walmart, BJ’s Wholesale Club, WalMart and CVS.
According to the announcement, it will be compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices, and will be able to “play the latest VR games and applications.”
In a video for its Kickstarter campaign, LUMinemic said that it is aiming to sell its LUMiner through the end of June.
More details about the Lumberjack will be revealed later this year.
