Li Gang, Dlodlo CEO, having entrenched his company as global leader in VR technology research and development, this IT-oriented entrepreneur has ushered in a new high-tech era with the launch of the wireless, portable and fashion-forward "Dlodlo VR Glasses."

Billed as the thinnest and lightest immersive Virtual Reality glasses in the world, these glasses represent the latest and greatest in VR technology that are appreciably offered at a bearable consumer price point, $699.00 per pair.

Mr. Gang, at just 34 years old, is sitting on top of the world, the virtual reality world, that is. A millennial mastermind with a passion for, and devotion to, creating ground-breaking consumer-grade VR devices—coupled with the fact that I am a raging gadget geek—I was anxious to connect with this fast-rising global CEO to discuss his most recent innovation: the Dlodlo VR Glasses. Here's what he had to say.

1. What inspired you to create the new virtual reality glasses?
Virtual reality technology is poised to change our lives, but there have been problems with other VR devices on the market, including the fact that they are oversized, heavy, bulky and have blurred images caused by what's called a "screen door effect"—a severe visual staying phenomenon caused by immature gravity control technology. My goal was to solve not just one but all of these problems so that virtual reality can realize its full potential. At Dlodlo, we have unique advantages that have resulted in VR glasses that are second to none. For one, our team members are highly experienced, consisting of optical design technicians who served at Olympus, hardware technicians who served at Motorola, and a software R&D team who served at Alibaba. I, myself, was a leading R&D team technician for both KANBOX and WPS Office. Secondly, our office location in Shenzhen in Guangdong, China, which is the hardware capital of the world, gave us access to a mature supply chain that facilitated our rapid development in the VR industry.

2. What makes Dlodlo's glasses different from other available VR systems?
Many things set our glasses apart from any others on the market, starting with the fact that Dlodlo VR Glasses are the thinnest and lightest wireless VR glasses in world. They utilize fashionable sunglass-like styling that's totally different from the various helmet-style VR devices available from other companies. In fact, the net weight is about 4 ounces, which is four-times lighter than other VR devices.

Fashion and comfort aside, the Dlodlo VR Glasses provide the highest Full HD resolution of 2K+ with a 16:9 aspect ratio as well as the fastest 120Hz refresh rate for a display without dizziness, lag, distortion or, as previously mentioned, a screen door effect.  The glasses support 2D/3D switch video, 4K video displays and provides the largest 110° Field of View (FOV) for a fully immersive, no-border VR experience—a visual feast of stereoscopic 3D faming and movies. The glasses also provide unsurpassed interaction through a leading-edge user interface and open API for a real VR ecosystem. Additionally, the Dlodly VR Glasses employ a physical biomimetic optical imaging design for a wider FOV and more comfortable display. Also notable is that these glasses adjust from 58mm to 70mm to account for those with vision problems, who won't need to wear corrective glasses when using the device

Also ubiquitous, the Dlodlo VR Glasses do not require reliance on a PC or specific type of smartphone or device in order to use. Rather, the glasses employ the Android 4.4 OS with built-in Bluetooth that allows them to work with any Bluetooth-enabled device like gaming systems, smartphones, tablets, speakers, headsets, stereo headphones, laptops and more.

In short, we've adopted an optical imaging system with perfectly combined optical technology and physical hardware using safe, skin-friendly material that's as light to wear as sunglasses. Our VR glasses provide a distortion-free top quality 2K Full HD resolution display with biomimetic eye contrast ratio and definition design, so the user has a wonderful visual feast when using the Dlodlo VR Glasses.

3. How do you envision these VR glasses changing people's lives?
Virtual Reality technology will significantly change our existence for the better—with respect to both our business and our personal lives.  For example, with our VR glasses people can go clothes shopping in virtual world though which they can try on garments and feel the texture, which makes the shopping experience more interesting, engaging and likely successful. People can also communicate with each other face-to-face in a virtual world using VR glasses, without time and space limitation, so it is a completely different interaction than with regular video-based contact. The 3D "touchable" communication can help individuals better maintain relationships while apart. In fact, this only scratches the surface of the power of Virtual Reality technology.

4. Describe how you see different industries using the glasses? Sports? Medicine? Entertainment? Workplace?
Highly versatile, the multipurpose Dlodlo VR Glasses can elevate a variety of experiences like gaming, movies and apps. In addition, the glasses are well-suited for use in in schools, government, and corporations for education and training; in hospitals and medical offices during operations, research and patient consultations; with the disabled; and much more.  In fact, the Dlodlo VR Glasses include an interactive mode with touch and move-enabled controls, so the applications are essentially endless. But, more specifically, here are some industry-specific applications:

Sports: Our VR glasses will help athletes develop their potential ability at a maximum level, and generally make sports more interesting. There will be no weather or other such limitations for sports or training, which can be done through virtual training scenes. It can also help athletes adjust their training plan and improve the effectiveness of their training regime. Even fitness will never be boring since people can customize different scenes. For example, when jogging on treadmill a user can put themselves in any circumstance like running along a coastline or any other desired scenario.

Medicine: Dlodlo's VR Glasses will be used for medical education and conducting remote surgeries! We can conduct training in a virtual hospital by building all medical facilities according to realistic circumstances. We can present patients and let trainees feel the atmosphere of an emergency room. Trainees can also improve skills through virtual experimentation. VR glasses will have no limitations relating to time and space so if, for example, a patient was in Europe while doctor was in the U.S., the doctor could control the surgery process through a virtual world.

Entertainment: People can experience all kinds of amusement facilities and extreme-sports with VR glasses. The immersive experience will enhance the thrill and excitement in completely safe conditions. The glasses are compatible with 99% of the VR games currently, allowing users to enjoy the newest and coolest VR games at an unprecedented level. Additionally, the movie watching experience will be better than an IMAX film. In the future, traditional amusement parks and cinemas will be entirely replaced by VR glasses.

Education: Dlodlo's VR Glasses will bring much fun to a classroom. For example, in classes like astronomy, history or engineering, individuals can enter into a circumstance accordingly—students can walk on Mars or visit a prehistoric land. They can look around and enjoy an immersive 3D experience.

Workplace: In business, people can enter into customized office and do cross-regional work by wearing VR glasses, which will save times on a commute. Dlodlo's VR Glasses can also provide 3D demonstrations for technicians, which will be helpful for improving engineering and design accuracy, working efficiency and lowering R&D costs.

5. How have you personally used the VR glasses?
I spend about 3-4 hours using the Dlodlo VR Glasses every day, but mostly to test it. I strongly believe a "perfect" product is not just a piece of equipment, but rather an art that needs to be continually refined and enhanced. I try my best to feel each detail of the glasses and what they evoke. Finding any area for improvement makes me excited, because discovering and dealing with shortcomings is a key step toward achieving greatness. And I will stop at nothing less.

6. How are you availing the glasses to the public?
Dlodlo has initially launched in the American and European markets. Virtual Reality devices are not a new concept for those markets, and I believe consumers in those regions will appreciate the benefits, quality and value our glasses offer. Consumer can easily purchase the glasses through outlets like Dlodlo.com, Tmall.com, Jd.com, Amazon, DHGate.com, Lightinthebox, Deal Extreme, Ali Express, eBay.com and Taobao.com, among others.

In our exchange, it was clear that Li Gang, who is well-poised to become China's most recognized global CEO, has a very Steve Jobs-like drive and vision for how products can make humanity better.  In fact, he explicitly expressed his belief that any creative product and technology "belongs to all mankind, rather than to any specific group," and that his hope for the future is that all consumers will ultimately have the opportunity to enjoy and gain from the kind of VR technology his company continues to pioneer.  I will certainly be keeping Mr. Gang's Dlodlo-driven product roll outs in my own field of view.
