Japan Display Inc. has developed a VR head mounted display (VRM-100) featuring an LCD panel developed exclusively for business users.
The VRM-100 features a high definition LCD panel (2880 × RGB × 1600 615ppi) and a gyro sensor. It has detachable VR goggles and allows users to view high definition VR content without needing any external head tracking sensors and controllers. However, this is not a stand alone VR headset, as it requires a PC connection.
Until today, JDI was focusing on the development, manufacturing and sales of VR dedicated LCD displays. Now the company is expanding into the VRHMD realm.
The company will sell the VRM-100 to developers in Japanese corporations, at least for now. It will start accepting pre-orders from December 3rd, with shippments to be schefuled for the middle of December.
