VRS RATING

If the Q comes to market on time, it will be the first true AR/VR product that’s practical to use. Given that it can also be used as a tethered system, the Sulon Q may turn out to be the best value for money product of the early AR/VR years.

VRS Review

VRS OVERALL RATING
Recomended Not Recomended

When Sulon showed off their humongous Cortex AR HMD everyone was rightly impressed with the tech, but no one could actually see themselves walking around with such a bulky unit on their heads. Especially since it’s an untethered experience where you are expected to walk around.

Not too long after that first device reveal, Sulon showed off something much smaller and much closer to something that you’d want to buy and use yourself. It’s the Sulon Q and this time there’s no giant sensor-ball on the back of your head.

Looking at the Q, you can immediately tell it apart from something like an Oculus. First of all, there are two cameras at the front of the HMD that acts as your “eyes”. It’s through these that you see the world, which then has virtual objects and information overlaid by the custom on-board hardware Sulon has equipped the Q with.

There’s a full computer onboard this HMD. It has an AMD processor with built-in Radeon R7 graphics, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and custom “spatial processor” that allows the Q to scan and understand your environment in real-time.

The OLED panel is a nice, high resolution and there are two cameras and two microphones, so that your eyes and ears can get everything in stereo, the way nature intended.

Just as important as the visuals, the Q comes with 3D spatial audio processing. AR would not be as immersive if you suddenly lost the ability to hear where noises are positioned.

If the Q comes to market on time, it will be the first true AR/VR product that’s practical to use. Given that it can also be used as a tethered system, the Sulon Q may turn out to be the best value for money product of the early AR/VR years.
