Goovis G3X: New VR headset is light
The Goovis G3X is a new VR headset that is designed to be particularly compact and light and thus comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Micro OLEDs from Sony are used, which promise a particularly colorful display.

The well-known manufacturer Goovis is launching a new VR headset onto the market, the G3X. As is not unusual, this is being financed as part of a Kickstarter campaign. The asking price is at least $539, after which supporters will receive a basic set of the Goovis G3X in May 2024. As this is a crowdfunding campaign, supporters must be aware of the significant financial risks involved.

The Goovis G3X is equipped with two Micro-OLED screens from Sony, of which the resolution is said to be 1920 x 1080 per eye. According to the manufacturer, the image impression corresponds to that of an 800-inch screen at a distance of 20 meters - the field of view is actually only 52°. Goovis also advertises the particularly convincing color reproduction; the sRGB color space is said to be covered at 113%.

The headset is suitable for people with a pupil distance of between 56 and 72 millimeters, as well as for those who wear glasses with a diopter range of + 2 to - 8. Any device that provides image output via USB- C, even via an appropriate adapter, can be used with the G3X. A special media player with a battery is also included. The weight is only 200 grams, and special padding means the VR headset can be worn for long periods of time without issue. 3D and 2D content can be played, as well as video games.

A possible alternative: Buy the Meta Quest 3 at Amazon.
