Panasonic Launches MeganeX Lightweight SteamVR Headset

At CES 2022, Panasonic unveiled Megane X, a pair of lightweight virtual reality glasses.

Panasonic, unveiled ultra-compact VR glasses with OLED micro displays and pancake lenses that resemble sunglasses more than most other VR headsets. The company then released a revised form factor in 2021 to support six degrees of freedom (6DOF) movement. With a twist, the imaging appears to be the first consumer iteration of this device.

MeganeX is a SteamVR headset developed in partnership with Panasonic.

Many of the specifications are the same as early Panasonic's prototypes. Megane X uses 1.3-inch micro displays with a resolution of 2,5602,560 per eye at 120Hz. With foldable frames, it weighs 250 grams and houses Snapdragon's XR1 chip.

The Megane X headset connects to SteamVR via USB. Megane not included the wire for a compatible controller yet to be announced, but the company promises that information will be available soon. Sheftall Panasonic CEO says that future updates will include support for other platforms, but he doesn't specify what this entails.

Takuma Iwasa described Shiftall's specialty for Panasonic as very short time development and a small quantity of mass production so that the company can trial and error on the market.

back in 2020, the company prepares to launch MeganeX, it's possible that we'll see a limited rollout in 2022.
