A wider field-of-view than an IMAX screen makes Wearality Sky a VR treat

Wearality Sky, another head-mounted VR goggle, doesn’t look like the Google Cardboard or the Samsung Gear VR. Although they all use smartphone screens as their main display, Wearality Sky features a single thick lens in eyeglass frames.

With the radical redesign, the output is an unprecedented field of view of 150 degrees. In contrast, an iMAX screen averages at just about 110 degrees.

To explain, higher field-of-view numbers means more width is in sight without having to move the eyes. Under normal conditions humans have almost 180 degrees of vision. We have that to thank for our driving skills and quick response to approaching danger. Due to the lens sizes in the device, Sky makes good use of our peripheral vision for a more immersive experience.
