A recent move announced by Dior, one of the of the more influential names in the fashion world, will definately turn some heads.
The fashion brands Virtual Reality project is called Dior Eyes and is in collaboration with DigitasLBi Labs in France. The headset will be available in selected Dior stores allowing customers to go backstage at one of the label’s biggest fashion shows. According to the developers it will be the first Augmented Reality headset that will incorporate 360 video and binaural audio. Some tech specs for the Dior Eyes headset include a “the headpiece embeds a high density screen (515 ppp) providing a 2K image resolution, in other words hardly pixelated, associated with a FOV (Field of Vision) close to 100°.”
