To power the V1, Dlodlo uses its portable ‘Dlodlo D1’ brick that has a large touchpad and runs a customised version Android 5.0. The Dlodlo D1 has a micro-HDMI port, which means it can take input from a variety of devices - from phones to PCs to gaming consoles. The Dlodlo D1 acts as the brain for the Dlodlo V1 headset. With a quad-core processor and a 3000 mAh battery, the D1 should be able to power the headset for 2-3 hours of playback.
Wong writes about a few gripes he had with the headset’s nose-pads that didn’t fit him well. Luckily, Dlodlo is making interchangeable nose-pads so fitting shouldn’t be an issue. Wong also wrote that the headset blocked external light well and the high-res display managed to omit the “screen door effect” prevalent in many VR headsets.
When can you order the V1 (and D1) for yourself? There is no information about it. However, you can keep a lookout on Dlodlo’s website for all updates.
