LG's new 360 VR headset was unveiled in Barcelona. It's surprising!
First of all, it's small and lightweight.
The LG 360 VR plugs into the newest LG G5 phone via USB-C.
It has its own built-in dual 1080p displays, too.
This headset is about a third of the weight of larger phone-based VR headsets like Samsung Gear VR.
It has earpieces that unfold, like a pair of VR glasses.
Two buttons on top handle navigation a bit.
It looks sleek.
Your G5 phone, when plugged in, can use its touchscreen like an extra VR controller.
Its wired design means it needs that USB-C cable to plug into your phone, however. For audio, you'll need to plug headphones in your phone or use a Bluetooth headset.
The LG 360 VR works with existing VR phone apps like Google Cardboard, but won't be able to access Oculus apps.
Are smaller headsets the way of the future for VR?
It's a lot more portable.
The LG 360 VR will debut alongside the new G5 phone. Price is still unknown.
