IonVR Partners With Stromberg And Spielberg’s VRC
XDA’s Mobile VR partner, IonVR, has just made an announcement about another, monumental partner joining them. The Virtual Reality Company (VRC), which consists of some Hollywood heavyweights like Robert Stromberg (Chief Creative Officer, winner of two Academy Awards and director of MALEFICENT) and Steven Spielberg (Advisor, winner of multiple Academy Awards and director known for a few things you might have heard about), has entered into a strategic alliance with IonVR. As a direct result of the alliance, IonVR will be demonstrating their innovative mobile headset by using VRC’s original content at the TechCrunch Disrupt expo in San Francisco next week.
“I can’t think of a more exciting way to realize the limitless potential of virtual reality than to marry VRC’s high-quality creative content with IonVR’s cutting-edge technology,” said Stromberg. Brooke Linville, CEO of IonVR, added, “Great content deserves a high quality VR headset. IonVR’s partnership with VRC connects the best of Hollywood story-telling to the best mobile VR headset technology available today, allowing virtual worlds to come alive on your smartphone screen.”
The announcement also brings a bit more focus around the headset IonVR has been developing, along with major contributions from XDA’s Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire:
“IonVR’s headset provides what critics have described as the best mobile VR experience currently available to VR consumers. It makes use of a unique optical solution to address the problems of motion blur and latency that lead to so-called VR sickness, the malady similar to motion sickness that consumers often experience with other VR systems.”
We at XDA are excited to be involved in this product, and look forward to sharing more about that in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the full press release, and visit IonVR for more information and to get on the waiting list for this awesome headset.
