Intended primarily for developers (but not only…) and resulting from Kickstarter funding, the Simulate One, first VR headset under Linux equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor and an Iris XE integrated GPU, is now available for pre-order! The specs of the machine are a priori enough to make the heavyweights of high-end VR tremble: resolution per eye of 2,448 x 2,448 pixels in LCD, RGB and with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, lenses made up of three elements , 100 degree FoV, two RGB cameras for motion capture, 1TB of NVMe SSD storage capacity, automatic IPD adjustment, Wi-Fi 6, and most importantly, a processor Intel Core i7-1165G7 accompanied by an Iris XE integrated GPU!
This VR headset monster can be accompanied by a dedicated keyboard, which is rather logical given that the presentation video reveals a device largely dedicated to virtualized computer work! Everything works under Linux SimulaOS distro. The prices of the Simula One betray its professional orientation: the model without Intel processor (to be connected to the PC therefore) is offered at 1199 dollars, the Founders Edition model (in limited quantities) is at 4999 dollars, as for the standard model, it will take everything similarly pay 2699 dollars to get it.
