  • Samsung HMD Odyssey VR headset upgraded with Anti-Screen Door Effect display

After leaking earlier, Samsung has officially announced the HMD Odyssey+, the successor to its Samsung HMD Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset.

In brief: Samsung's new mixed reality headset aims to eliminate the immersion-crushing screen door effect by diffusing light emitted from each pixel to fill in the areas around it.

"With the dual 3.5" AMOLED displays and a combined resolution of 1,440 x 1,600 per eye, the Samsung HMD Odyssey+, when paired with Anti-SDE technology, pushes the visual boundaries forward for immersive technologies. However, Samsung is touting an improved display technology that purportedly reduces pattern noise for a "perceived PPI of 1,233". Unlike sitting a few feet away from a PC monitor, VR and mixed reality headsets cram the displays just a few inches away from your eyeballs.

"When fine lines separating pixels become visible in some displays, the "screen door effect" can hinder immersion and even lead to dizziness or nausea over time", the Microsoftie writes. This makes the spaces between pixels near impossible to see. Though the actual pixels-per-inch figure of this headset remains the same as the non-plussed Odyssey at 616 PPI, Samsung claims the new HMD has an "effective PPI" of 1233.

There's also built in headphones tuned by AKG, a built-in microphone that plays nice with Microsoft's voice assistant Cortana and it comes with controllers that support 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) motion control accuracy. It'll be available in other regions including Korea, China, Brazil and Hong Kong soon, Sammy said.

Samsung's HMD Odyssey+ goes on sale today in the U.S. at the Microsoft store and on Samsung's website priced at $499.99.
