From Samsung To Razer To Oculus – The Latest In Virtual Reality
Razer’s Open Source VR (OSVR) headset is still a way off from the retail market, but the prototype we tried showed a lot of promise.Virtual reality has been a holy grail of sorts for tech developers for several decades, but previous generations’ attempts were too clunky, heavy, and unconvincing. The dream hasn’t died, and judging by what we saw at International CES this week, the field is ready to explode (in a good way).
The Gear VR has actually been on the market for a short time, but only through the Samsung website. Additionally, while it only costs $199, it requires a Samsung Note 4 smartphone, so if you don’t have that device, you just have a headset you can strap on for the purpose of bumping into stuff.
This article is a nice overview of what’s currently out and about in the VR world right now. 2015 is a big year though, so expect this space to change a lot over the next 12 months.
