The headset marker can be placed on any smartphone-containing VR device (such as Gear VR, Google Daydream or Cardboard), while the base station claims to have a field of view of 100 degrees.
It looks like the Nolo setup is compatible with Android devices, although the company says it will work with iOS at a later date. And while SteamVR compatibility is probably the biggest attraction for Nolo enthusiasts right now, the team says the device can also be used with native mobile VR games.
With three weeks left in the Kickstarter campaign, Nolo has already raised nearly $190,000 from more than 1,300 donors. But don’t get excited too soon – as Upload VR points out, Nolo’s wireless setup requires that you stream content from a PC via the Riftcat and VRidge applications, which are associated with latency issues. While Nolo supposedly can keep the delay under 20 milliseconds even if it’s off by a minute, the gameplay could make it almost impossible.
