Interst for virtual reality (VR) is so great all around the world and in Asia in particular, where it could be able from immediately to develop consistent sales because of the high number of heavy gamers, that after the official launch of the first 3D viewers as Oculus Rift, Htc Vive and Samsun Gear VR (and of course Google Cardboard), that would have like a hundred Chinese companies which are going to launch their models on the market, much cheaper.
Cheap Chinese 3D viewers
Whith Goldman Sachs which for months talks of a market that could be worth 45 million dollars within 2025 if the average price will drop about $ 350-400, at the latest Hong Kong Electronic Fair (April 13-16, 2016) we saw the first Chinese copies inspired by the Google Cardboard (at $ 2-3 one against the $ 10 of the original) but also several devices with prices between 25 and 80 Us dollars which could quickly gain market share at the expense of Western manufacturers of medium to low-end devices, as the Samsung Gear VR (that costs around $ 100 if new, just under $ 64 when used on Amazon Prime).
For now the high-end stay away
For now have not been seen 3D viewers even remotely similar to the top of the range as Oculus Rift and Htc Vive, which suggests that by the time the Chinese manufacturers intend to focus on volumes, exactly as it happened in the case of the smartphone market. But how in that case could only be a matter of waiting a few years before seeing a Chinese 3D viewer able to compete with dignity not only on price but also on the quality.
