Zeiss VR One Connect Puts PC VR Content on Mobile VR Headsets

VR gaming on PCs is an expensive pastime, since it requires not just the PC's and game's costs but a standalone VR headset as well; the Zeiss VR One Connect system helps to save gamers money. The system lets users route PC-based VR games to their smartphones, which they can then connect to a significantly less expensive mobile VR headset.

The Zeiss VR One Connect system is the product of a partnership between Zeiss and Steam, the online game marketplace. One Connect runs SteamVR games that play through PCs, but sends pre-rendered graphics to smartphones directly through a USB cord connected to the computer. This means that the computer does all the heavy lifting of processing while the phone merely provides a display. Since nearly every gamer is likely to have a smartphone already, the One Connect system is far more cost-efficient.
