EXCHIMP AI1 All-in-One VR Headset

€87,535

330

You want to immerse yourself completely in VR? But you don't want to spend a fortune on a VR system from Oculus, Sony or HTC? And you want to have a higher quality as any low-cost solutions that work with your mobile phone? Then the EXCHIMP AI1 VR headset it the ideal solution for you!

EXCHIMP AI1 is an all-in-one virtual reality headset which is at the same time lightweight, mobile and it has a very sharp QHD display. You just put on the VR headset and let yourself go ... immersed in space, on a rollercoaster, spotting elephants or enjoying a 360° video. 

You don't need a computer or a game console for using EXCHIMP AI1 as this all-in-one VR system includes pre-installed content such as games and videos out of the box (based on stretch goals). Additionally you can download any VR game or app from the Google Play Store via Wi-Fi. With the internal memory of 32 GB there is enough space for all your VR content and you can pimp it with a Micro SD card. 

 

The big disadvantage of all-in-one virtual reality headsets results in carrying everything on your head, not only display and sensors but also processor and battery. But that's not necessary! Therefore, we decided to take the heavy parts from the headset and put them in a separate control bar which fits perfect in the palm of your hand. So, the headset itself weights only 389 grams. 

Another major advantage of having processor and battery in the control bar, is that the headset does not develop any heat compared to head mounted smartphones.

The Intel processor (ATOM x5) and the TFT display with 60 Hz refresh rate guarantee a smooth frame rate and a fluid VR experience at a 100° field of view. The 16 GB internal memory comes with lots of pre-installed content such as games and videos (based on stretch goals). With the built-in W802.11ac Wi-Fi controller you can easily go online and download additional content. 

  

Fibrum develops all pre-installed games. Intel delivers the processor ATOM x5. The Nibiru VR operating system is based on Android. The EXCHIMP AI1 all-in-one VR headset is compatible with apps and games from Google Play Store.

After testing the best-selling VR devices we have seen pros and cons between low-cost systems that run on smartphones and high-cost systems that require high-end PCs and graphic cards. We developed 12 months on the new groundbreaking EXCHIMP AI1 VR system that bridges the gap between price, mobility and quality.

 

 

We presented the prototype of the EXCHIMP AI1 at CES in Las Vegas in January 2017. Find below reactions of the people testing our prototype.  

 In the following video you'll explore the inside of the VR headset. Stefan presents the software of the EXCHIMP AI1.

 

We love unprecedented experience and unlimited possibilities that VR allows us to virtually teleport ourselves to any place. Our team of smart engineers, experienced and already very successful in terms of solar technology, now made the step towards virtual reality technology.  

Since last year so called all-in-one VR systems are trying to build a new category on the VR market, but from our perspective they fail for a number of reasons in hardware and also software. Therefore we decided to developed a new product that is far better at some important key tasks and we think you will love our product same as we do.

Risks and challenges

We did and will do our best to successfully deliver what we've promised to our EXCHIMP backers. Component delays and unexpected shortage can happen. In that case, we will do our best to solve the problem.

Because we ship express from our production partner in China to your door, we want to inform you that customs and taxes are not included in the price. Depending to your home country, delivery might take longer and you might have to fill in a customs declaration and customs, fees and/or taxes could be raised by the authorities of your country before you get your EXCHIMP AI1. You need to take care of it yourself and we can't cover any compensation claims that arise due to your personal effort while handling these issue. Thank you for your understanding.

We will support you in every matter. Please contact us if you have any queries.
