  1. Cool to see progress in this area and hope that this will indirectly pressure larger companies to keep lower prices when they eventually release similar solutions bases on the next-generation Nvidia Tegra and Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs which will surley also support VR.

    Still, personally I will first wait until Google releases Android “N” (7.0?) with Daydream VR platform before buying a Chinese VR device for over $100, and then need to wait until Chinese SoC manufacturers starts supporting that Daydream VR platform and sell devices that come with Android “N” (7.0?).
