A couple of days ago I bought an interesting piece of hardware: “Ready2Power Multimedia 3D All in One” - a pair of VR glasses with a built-in computer and monitor. My main motivation to buy the device is my 3D photo camera. I have many 3D photographs and 3D films but no device to watch them properly. It is very difficult to find any information on the glasses online. Therefore, I decided to write some blog posts about the device. Even the user’s manual is difficult to find. There are the English and German version.
There are almost no reviews on the device. One author wrote that it is impossible to use the device with glasses. Although I have pretty bad distance vision (-4 diopter) I can use the VR glasses without wearing my glasses. It is also possible to wear my glasses without the VR glasses. Other general reviews on 3D glasses criticize the low resolution. However, I quickly forget about the pixels if the content is interesting enough. Ok, I also have no problem watching TV in SD - so I might be not a good yardstick for the picture quality.
Here are the technical details collected from several shop websites:
- 5” LCD Screen, Auflösung: 1280x720
- CPU: RK3126, ARM Cortex-A7, Speed 1.3
- RAM: 1G ROM: 8GB
- GPU Typ: Mali 400 MP2
- operating system Android 5.1
- battery: 3.7V/2200mAh Lithium-ion Polymer
- built-in gravity acceleration sensor
- WIFI: 2.4G/802.11b/g/n+BT 4.0(HS)/BT 2.1
- USB on-the-go (USB-OTG)
- Bluetooth 4.0

Android’s “about the phone” reveals some more details:
- VR version: Nibiru 2.00.003
- device name: M1
- CPU: 1,0GHz Quad-Core
- memory: 3,61G/5,7G
- resolution: 720P

- Kernal-Version (sic!): 3.10.0 albert@nibiru #154 Thu Sep 1 15:40:13 CST 2016
If I remember correctly, the device came with an older software (August 2016) when I took it out of the box and a software update (~500MB) was performed automatically.
The operation is a little difficult. The devices has a few buttons on the bottom side:
The use of Android’s virtual keyboard is possible with these keys - but quite cumbersome. However, it is no problem to connect a keyboard via Bluethooth or a mouse via USB. The device supports USB on-the-go (USB OTG).
In my next post I am going to write a little bit more on the Android system and the display.
