Dusun Electron Ltd. announced the launch of its new virtual reality-based handheld controller for mobile phones that are uniquely designed to explore VR environments in 3D space by pointing, clicking on objects, and navigating the menu.
This VR controller features a touchpad and a 9-axis motion sensing based gyroscope, compass as well as accelerometer sensors to control the VR headset via Bluetooth. It supports the latest commercially available Android and Apple smartphones in the market to play mobile VR applications with a wearable headset.
The controller enables Beijing Baofeng Mojing Technologies – the leading global VR company focused on the mobile platform, to deliver high-quality VR experiences. Together with the VR controller and Baofeng’s App, users can use a wearable headset with a phone to easily navigate VR applications in 3D space and watch videos and play immersive games to truly embrace the VR experience.
Dusun’s VR controller incorporates highly accurate 9-axis sensor fusion software to deliver a high performance and quality VR motion controller. The device extracts data from gyroscope and accelerometer sensors and produces application-ready outputs to enable intuitive motion-controlled user experiences. Dusun’s VR controller consists of a limited number of key commands and a touchpad along with haptic feedback to interact with VR applications from the headset, such as select, menu viewing, return to the home page, back to the previous screen, and volume control. The haptic feedback gives the user to play it as naturally as in the physical game. Additionally, a trigger button feature exists on the controller to perform select actions while viewing videos and playing games.
“We are pleased to use Dusun’s VR controller with our mobile VR platform to give users the best VR experience with high accuracy and stability,” said Xin Wang, New Product Development Manager of Baofeng.
“According to the Sensor Tower data report, in the first quarter of 2017 alone, mobile VR software downloads across Google and Apple platforms totaled more than 85 million worldwide, a 205 percent year-over-year increase. Dusun is excited to offer an advanced and innovative VR controller highlighted with superior motion and immersive performance to support mobile VR,” said Benny Chan, CEO of Dusun.
