Xiaomi introduces it's first VR offering, the Mi VR Play headset
Xiaomi makes a lot of things but one thing that the company does not make is a Virtual Reality device. But that changes today as they have just announced the Xiaomi Mi VR Play which is a simple Google Cardboard-like VR headset. Opposed to being made out of cardboard, Xiaomi opted to make their VR headset out of spandex which is a clothing material.
The headset itself will support phones with screens 4.7 - 5.7-inches and Xiaomi has implemented a zipper design to lock the smartphone in the headset while in use. In addition to all of that, Xiaomi is also introducing several stylish designs for the Mi VR Play. Another unique thing about the Xiaomi's VR headset is the Mi VR app which is used to view 2D/3D content. The app itself bundles in the functionality of several video streaming services in China.
But beyond that, Xiaomi's VR headset is just another affordable VR headset. Currently, Xiaomi is publicly testing the Mi VR Play in China and expect to see it come out of China eventually.
