New cable-free virtual reality goggles trump Facebook and Google’s efforts

By 2020, we’ll be spending £150billion a year on virtual reality gubbins. That’s partly because the headsets require smartphones, computers or games consoles to power them. The clever thing about Alcatel’s Vision VR goggles is that they’re entirely self-contained and wireless. That means you can slip ’em on and start your virtual daydream, without getting tied up in a bunch of cables.

EYE OF THE TIGER

Inside the mask are two 3.8-inch HD AMOLED displays (we’ve done the maths; that’s one for each eye). This headset even adjusts for myopia, so you can ditch your glasses.

NO STUPID CABLES

Sneakily, Alcatel has hidden a battery in this forehead rest. Expect three hours per charge, which is plenty of time to try out person-to-person games such as ‘virtual combat frisbee’
