There seems to be a VR headset for just about everything these days.
Whether you’re looking to play games, watch movies & television on the go, or design and develop, there’s a VR headset for you. So I guess it was only a matter of time until someone created a VR headset specifically designed specifically for cricket fans, right?… Right?
First spotted by Business Today, the JioDive is a new device from Indian telecommunications company Jio that allows you to watch Indian Premiere League cricket matches in VR. You can catch the action live in immersive 360 degrees or on a 100-inch virtual screen. You even have the ability to switch between multiple camera angles.
The headset is powered by your smartphone and features support for iOS and Android devices with a display size of 4.7-6.7 inches. Once your smartphone has been inserted you can then adjust the image clarity using the center and side wheels. There’s also a physical button located on the bottom-right of the headset for basic interactions with the JioImmersive app, such as switching between cameras.
In terms of comfort, Jio promises an ergonomic headset designed for extended use. The device features your standard 3-way adjustable strap as well as a “breathable” face cushion for increased comfort.
Here are a few key specs (as provided by Jio):
- 90-degree field of view (FOV)
- Net weight of 325 grams
- Compatible with iOS 15 / Android 9
- IPD adjustment wheel
- Solid black color
- Diopter adjustment wheel
The JioDive is currently available for purchase for ₹1,299.00 ($15.90) via JioMart. You’ll also need to download the JioImmersive app, available on the App Store and Google Play. While the app itself is free to download, you will need to be a Jio customer in order to access IPL content.
