Alloy Project is a virtual reality headset. Unlike the HTC Vive, PlayStation or Oculus Rift VR, here we are dealing with a complete, wireless design.

Intel decided to share details of the rapid approach of the Project Alloy, or Wi heads to virtual reality. The company has released renderings and we know exactly what we can expect. Alloy Project was officially declared at the IFA 2016 . In Berlin, Intel introduced the audience the reference design as an open platform that allows third parties to take and create your own wireless headsetów to virtual reality. It's a completely different idea of what is already available on the consumer market, but it should in a really interesting way to translate into an increase in popularity of virtual reality.

For now, as users wanting to take advantage of VR we have to contend with a few restrictions. The first of them are even wires connected to LIVE headset and a computer or console. So popular operating appliances type HTC Vive, PlayStation VR or even Oculus Rift. Intel, however, decided to change the rules of the game and in the case of Project Alloy we are dealing with a complete, wireless design. What's inside?

Project Project Alloy has 10 seats for special sensors and sensors that allow for an adequate number of cameras in the said heads . Installed cameras are used to track the user's location and the use of control with additional controllers or other solutions. Anyway: we have not heard yet, the equipment required more space in the room and was in some way limited. This is good news, especially considering the weakness of competition in this topic. It is possible that a set of Project Alloy can be used with other sensors, which will be delivered by independent artists. Intel's new idea is more like Lego blocks: the American company provides users with the concept, and they can play with and modify it.

solution, which I mentioned above will create the Project Alloy product "all in one", which will be ready to play, but at the same time offer Wi dedicated battery. Used by Intel GPU in the heads has been marked as one of the Core i7 chips, but I can not confirm one hundred percent, because the data are so far diligently protected by the American company. What else? The Project Alloy see a pair of USB ports type C, a pair of keys and a handle that is to allow you to control the distance between the screen on the left and right eye. It also appears that the same set has a standard 3.5-millimeter jack connector on one side. This is a universal idea, which could be seen already.

Unfortunately, for now we can only guess where this device is a battery. It is possible that it has been placed on the back of the band, but we do not have the official specifications, also hard to confirm. It is known, however, after the presentation at IFA, the same set is much heavier than competing solutions.

Alloy Project, this is just the initial version of the system, because the Prime Minister herself has been set for mid-2017 years. It will be a moment in which the market will also be the second-generation HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, the fight could be fierce. It is possible that Intel will not have in it what to look for.
