DJI Goggles Is A Head-Turner
DJI just revealed a new way for drone flyers to enjoy their unmanned aerial vehicles. The company unveiled the DJI Goggles, a device that allows drone operators to experience the first-person point of view of what the flying device can see. More interestingly, the user can control the drone by simply turning his or her head.
The head-turning DJI Goggles has first introduced the pair of high-tech eyewear back in 2016 during the launch of the DJI Mavic Pro. The wearable tech has what DJI calls the Head Tracking feature which lets pilots maneuver the drone via head movements.
The strikingly white DJI Goggles is made up of a pair of "ultra-high-quality screens" with a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution along with the company's OcuSync wireless connectivity that's built for long range and low latency. The said transmission system allows up to two DJI Goggles to connect to one drone, particularly the Mavic Pro. DJI Inspire drones as well as the Phantom 4 Series including the Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Advanced, Phantom 4 Pro, can connect to the Goggles through a USB port on the controller.
Perhaps the only drawback with the DJI Goggles is its bulkiness. As Engadget noted, the wearable resembles a VR headset more than a pair of FPV goggles. DJI made sure the Goggles is as comfortable as possible when worn. It employs a headband design that keeps everything stable by spreading the weight of the device so the face experiences less pressure and discomfort. Despite its huge frame, the DJI Goggles is notably better than the rest of the field with its high-quality screens and other features.
According to DJI's press release, users of its drones "deserve a first-person viewing experience with the same quality, power, and performance they have come to expect". Fans will get to judge for themselves starting May 20 when the $449 head-turning DJI Goggles starts being available.
