Deep throat revealed Tencent released tomorrow how VR machine

Tencent to a VR machine, equipped with their own TOS system.

Deep throat told Lei Feng network, tomorrow the company will release a series of hardware and software solution based on TOS, including the VR machine hardware and software solution.

Admission to the Penguin, bring what is the product? What kind of layout? Can affect the geometry of the industry? To these questions carefully, showing a very entrepreneurial team’s story, or, is a microcosm of the VR industry:

Capital, concept, craters, but the missing product (good).

Tencent General portrait of the VR machine:

According to the industry’s message:

Within the Tencent group concerns VR since last September, and began to research. Is currently set to work on one machine (insiders say, their meaning is not hardware). It is said that this machine by the above-mentioned group owned a Studio follow up visits national VR team, aside from hardware and optical directions push the hardware.

However, this is not a TOS 23rd Tencent micro Bo revealed that VR machine.

Tencent currently plans to launch the VR Head, other forces–MIG by Tencent’s (mobile Internet business group) to promote.

March 10 held one machine suppliers Conference, main is involved camera chip, and CPU, and GPU, suppliers, VR one machine will based on RK3288 of programme (Swiss core micro-of mobile chip, 4 nuclear with MALI T760 of GPU, competing products is full records of A80, and A80 is domestic another a paragraph one smart mirror small black used of programme), has Tencent MIG of intelligent hardware Department fencing, is said to have hardware main by Shenzhen a VR team is responsible for, they company had production has two paragraph class Oculus DK1 VR head.

It is said that this product launch is expected in June.

This release VR machine, probably MIG developed that style.

This is MIG pushes the company TOS a marginal product of the service, so in conjunction with the watch, TV boxes with publications.

Until now, VR-one programme is still not clear. (Maybe could be a glasses case)

TOS +VR machine: not difficult to difficult to Tencent TOS+VR team General pictures

TOS Department have a special name of “smart products”, belonging to the MIG.

Know the anonymous netizens tell Lei Feng network, starting from the hot 2010 Android mobile phone market, Tencent ROM try to 2011, Tencent has tried to launch customized Android OS Tita, given the investment, strategies may not benefit with rapid, cell phone manufacturers and other reasons, quietly died in 2013.

TOS team in March now when there are hundreds of people, team leader of Xun Kun, after 7 years GO Launcher product, familiar with the Android desktop, operating system. Different from Tita, TOS and this time due to an accurate, intelligent hardware market as a whole (they say).

Lei feng was told network ROM development, this is far from a sufficient number. At the time of the beginning of 2014, MIUI team has nearly 400 people. From the TOS project to start closed beta, the complete development cycle only 6 months, the progress goes, in June or July this year in order to achieve initial perfect state.

TOS currently, VR, watch for mobile phones, television boxes, TV (even cars) are covered, specific to the VR, may be 10–20 human scale, and entrepreneurial team. It is said that two weeks ago, Tencent also digging the domestic entrepreneurial team experts in the field of computer vision.

VR machine, OK? What difficulty?

Well, to talk to a VR machine, compared to the VR glasses case, one machine because it excludes mobile phone configuration to experience constraints and adaptation work, if the “ready”, can provide a better immersion experience. And implementation difficulties, an industry source tells us:

VR in hardware development, immersion programme, with optical in optical technology, combined with the structural design, SDK, developer-specific developer tools, indispensable. Do bad work, unable to give developers a good adaptability, experience it is impossible to do, the platform has no way of talking about.

Specific to one machine, in addition to the display screen, main chip, also lies in the underlying system optimized for virtual reality, He Jie, founder of Ximmerse tells us that RK3288 solution if you want to carry a binocular camera computer vision algorithms, and runs a virtual reality application, is relatively difficult.

Regardless of quad-core or eight-core mobile chips, two parts: includes CPU, GPU, CPU is responsible for control and floating point operations in General, while the GPU graphics operations.

Wanted to do a one machine is not difficult, there are a large number of ready-made scenarios can refer to, but very difficult.

Others believe that, one bigger challenges than by phone, mobile phone already has standards and sophisticated supply chain, VR one confidential a lot worse:

Team, experience, funds which part is not strong enough to do well.

Even if there are, do take a long time, supplier Conference held March, end of the relatively good product even faster.

VR operating system?

In March, Google announced that it is working on VR version of the Android operating system (it is said in Facebook to Google after the $ 2 billion acquisition of Oculus VR on the formation of the team ~). Insiders tell us that VR VR for Android but there may well be a defined, suitable for operation in a VR environment and operating system you are using, then what are the basic elements, as well as VR operating system developed problems, Fireworks workshops CTO Wang Mingyang tells us:

From a technical point of view, VR OS needs to optimize the hardware cannot be achieved (technical lower), such as Async OVR Timewarp (he explains as we often talk about time travel technology), as well as some VR requires special interface. And these must be engaged in development of VR to understand;

From a design perspective, VR operating systems need to rebuild existing 2D operations are implemented as VR operating mode, rather than rely on existing. From the show, interactive, UI details should be redesigned;

From the angle of experience, VR VR hardware operating systems should have the greatest degree of adaptation, understanding the hardware Feature and gives appropriate optimization; hub VR OS is software and hardware, both have to be taken into account;

VR operating system at a certain level should be played on certain model role of VR applications, such as Apple, IOS application of the recommended mode of operation performance of most of the IOS, such as multi-touch, automatic screens, gestural UI styles.

VR TOS does not actually have to do the operating system, but rather a framework (framework). Account system as its core, used this framework to quickly build your own services, connecting intelligent hardware, PC, cell phone, etc, to Tencent entered mainstream resources.

Other difficulties

A know anonymous users told us:

And like all lateral small projects for large companies, driving is extremely difficult.

Other applications to access Tencent requires cross-sectoral technical cooperation in Tencent, a project does not amount to 10 million users, what do you talk about access? Tencent games, social networking is a mainstream business, Tencent’s main business not related to VR and market uncertainty, resource scheduling difficulties; Juicy Couture iPhone case

Second, Tencent is a publicly traded company, VR return on short-term domestic story, engage in more later need to overthrow more redo, not too many inputs in the short term;

Finally, this also depends on the internal understanding of VR and Tencent technology accumulation, VR as a creative lead users in emerging industries, creativity requires.

Pit is accounted for, insiders say?

Talk about the impact on the industry and fork Depth VR CEO Zhu Chen told us:

Tencent’s admission, is useful for user’s popularity; in addition, other manufacturers of capital will also watch and move national VR team perhaps will usher in a new wave of acquisitions, capital injections;

However, from the current TOS of team-building and on the VR input, its more just to test the waters tour, belong to the strategic layout, is a dilution of the market as a whole, will have limited impact.
