Mirage Solo Can Now Act as a PC VR Headset Thanks to the Trinus VR!

Did you know that there is an app called the Trinus VR that uses video streaming via your WiFi or USB to allow mobile and standalone VR headsets act as if they were connected to your PC? It has just recently joined the Daydream platform, meaning a whole lot of capabilities for this solution and maybe even for VR porn films in the future. In the end, this Google’s VR platform runs on compatible smartphones and even the Lenovo Mirage Solo standalone VR visor!

In other words, starting with this day, if you have a Daydream compatible smartphone and a gaming PC, you can grab a cheap Daydream View headset for $50 on Amazon and jump right inside of any Steam VR games that does not require a 6DoF headset and/or tracked controllers. VR games are great, sure, but we are not here because of them, and the question that we have asked over a year ago remains: Will VR porn ever join the Google Daydream app?

Leaving the VR porn films behind for a moment, this solution is still really amazing. What’s more, if you’re running Trinus with the Mirage Solo, things can go to the next level, as the software supports the headset’s 6DoF positional tracking and is capable of passing it through to SteamVR. You can duck, lean and walk around the experience, and the producer claims the solution will have the VR game on your PC render at the correct 75Hz refresh rate of the Mirage Solo – and even our VR porn scenes are usually in 60Hz, which is more than enough for their flawless reception.

Trinus also claims support for PSVR and Google Cardboard, which is also a really nice touch when thinking about our VR porn films and full list of VR goggles that we offer support for. For Oculus Go and Gear VR users, the open source project ALVR already provides the similar functionality as Trinus, and the company only plan to add support for them in Q1 2019.

To keep perceived latency low and compensate for dropped frames in the transmission, Trinus incorporates its own asynchronous reprojection on the headset itself. Of course, the problem with Trinus and all apps like it is that image quality and latency still don’t match using a real PC VR headset. This isn’t generally caused by the wireless transmission itself (in fact, Trinus even supports wired over USB) – it’s actually the process called the compression. Neither WiFi nor USB have sufficient bandwidth to transfer the raw image to a VR headset, so compression has to be used regardless of circumstances. This introduces artifacts to the image, but it also adds latency because it takes the PC time to encode each frame, successfully ruining the immersion of some flawless VR porn videos in 6K ultra high definition, and that’s why we will probably have to wait a little longer for this to be a cheap and reliable VR porn solution.
