Why VR glasses in Somnium Space?

VR technology is often found in the context of the metaverse. Because both VR (=virtual reality) and the metaverse want to create digital realities.

By using VR glasses, headsets or even helmets in Somnium Space, you can experience this digital world in a new way in a 3D environment.

VR technology makes you feel like you’re really in Somnium Space. If you put on the VR glasses and turn your head, the angle of view changes just like in the real world. The controllers allow you to move and control your avatar.

In einer VR-Brille befinden sich zwei Linsen bzw. “Bildschirme” für die Augen. In den Linsen wird die Metaverse Welt wiedergegeben. Aus beiden Linsen formt sich für den VR-Brillen Träger eine reale Umgebung.

Über VR-Brillen Zubehör (Steuerungen, Kopfhörer…) wird die virtuelle Realität noch greifbarer.

Somnium Space – Own VR headset

Although Somnium Space is compatible with other VR headsets, Somnium Space is currently working on its own VR headset. With the “Somnium VR ONE”, the company wants to bring something unique to the market.

This is because the 3D models of the headset parts should be available so that any user with access to a 3D printer can print the parts themselves . The electronics of the VR headset are to be sold online via Somnium Space and will be comparatively cheap thanks to mass production. If you don’t have a 3D printer at your disposal, you can also purchase the fully assembled headset from Somnium Space.

Somnium Space is partnering with Vrgineers Inc. (provider of virtual and mixed reality pilot training systems) and the 3D printer manufacturer Prusa Research. Currently (as of October 2022), only one prototype of the VR headset is known.
