Xiaomi also announced a VR headset that goes with the Mi Note 2 (not its first, though). Like Gear VR and Daydream, it uses your phone as the display and processing hardware, but it has its own controller.
New VR Controller Right out of the box, the Xiaomi VR headset will come with a controller. Xiaomi touts that it has a touch interface and a nine-axis inertial motion controller. This accessory also looks similar to the controller that ships with the Google Daydream View VR headset. Its predecessor, which offers basic VR experience not unlike the one offered by Google Cardboard, does not have a controller. – See more at: http://www.techtimes.com/articles/183841/20161027/xiaomi-mi-vr-vs-mi-vr-play-whats-the-difference.htm#sthash.oO7fos0z.dpuf
The technical specifications are also much improved. The Mi VR is now outfitted with a dedicated motion sensor that can guarantee up to 16 times higher sensitivity. This variable is important because, alongside system-level optimization and the quality of the smartphone, it can dramatically reduce latency. This factor is critical because it determines how much motion sickness the wearer will be able to experience in the virtual space.
To sweeten the deal, Xiaomi has also created its own MIUI VR store where MI VR users can download content. Currently, the platform has more than 500 panoramic videos and 30 VR apps. This library is expected to get expanded further as Xiaomi revealed that the store has now more than 200 registered developers.
It is not yet clear whether the Mi VR supports Daydream, Google’s VR platform. Some noted a hint of compatibility based on the previously mentioned controller.
