The DJI Goggles Offer Immersive Experience With an Ergonomic Design

The DJI Goggles

The new DJI Goggles give you a first-person, VR-like experience in the real world. The goggles come with a couple of screens. Through these screens, you can see whatever the drone’s camera is pointing at. By simply moving your head, you can even control where the camera is pointed.

OcuSync Technology.

There are two 1080p displays with an 85-degree field of view. The new Ocusync technology is built into the headset. It allows you to get a live HD video feed directly from the Mavic Pro. You don’t require wires between the headset and the controller and reducing lag. At the moment, the DJI Mavic is the only aircraft that the goggles are compatible.

The DJI Goggles display a 1920X1080 image in front of each of your eyes. It’s like having two HD displays tied to your face. Wearing the goggles is like looking at a 216-inch home theater screen set about three meters away. Up to two goggles can connect to the Mavic Pro drone. This allows you to share your aerial adventures with a friend, too.

Intelligent Flight Modes.

The DJI Goggles are comfortable goggles. They are designed for seamless FPV flying with DJI products. They combine a pair of large ultra-high quality screens, long-range, low lag wireless connectivity. It gives direct control of photo and video capture. It comes with Intelligent Flight Modes like ActiveTrack, TapFly, Terrain Follow, Cinematic Mode and Tripod mode. These modes create a totally new flying dimension.

A reliable Connection.

DJI Goggles are able to offer both 720p/60fps. It offers close range 1080p/30fps viewing with an extremely low latency of just 110ms. Up to four devices can be connected to the Mavic Pro simultaneously, thanks to the OcuSync system. Antennas built into the headband ensure 360° of coverage. They offer a reliable connection even if the aircraft is flying behind you.

Two Screen for Two Eyes.

The screens inside the goggles are split into two 1280×1440 sections. One for each eye. DJI Goggles have two 1920×1080 screens. It provides more than twice the amount of pixels of a typical 2K single screen. Each screen packs its pixels together tightly. This way you can see a clean, cohesive image with no latticing. DJI Goggles use a beam splitter to display an image in front of each eye. There is also polarization to prevent any image overlap. An 85° field of view per eye is created for maximum immersion when used with the large aperture aspheric lens.

Controlling The Aircraft.

Your can control both aircraft yaw and camera tilt in Head Tracking Flight mode. This can be done with head movements as well with remote controller sticks. All you need to do is turn left or right to yaw left or right. Straighten your head to stop turning. In Head Tracking Gimbal mode, only the gimbal will move without affecting yaw. You get access to key intelligent features through a touchpad integrated into the DJI Goggles. Or a 5D button on the Mavic Pro controller. This makes navigating the internal menu system easy and intuitive.

Fixed-Wing Mode.

In this mode, the aircraft doesn’t turn left or right but instead flies forward with enough rotational movement. This gives realistic flight simulation. Combined with Head Tracking Mode, you can use your head to control the Mavic Pro for a fully realized flight experience. Terrain Follow, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Cinematic Mode and Tripod Mode are some of the other Intelligent Flight Modes.

Comfortable To Wear.

A unique solid headband design balances the weight of DJI Goggles around the head evenly. This minimizes pressure on the face and keeps them comfortable to wear for hours. You can wear them comfortably, even if you wear glasses. The screen portion of DJI Goggles can be flipped up to glimpse the real world. It can also be detached entirely for easy storage and portability. The DJI Goggles start shipping after May 20, 2017 and are priced at $499.
