GameFace VR headset could be an Oculus Rift killer | DVICE
The Oculus Rift has done wonders in revitalizing interest for virtual reality. For VR, a screen that’s sharper than HD is going to be a must. The other key feature that the Rift suffers from is that it’s connected with a long wire.
Created by GameFace Labs, the GameFace is a Rift-like pair of goggles with a 2.5K display (aka 2560 x 1440 resolution), which provides 78 percent more pixel clarity than the Rift (DK2) and Project Morpheus’s 1080p (1920 x 1080 resolution) display.
Although the latest Crystal Cove (aka DK2) prototype’s 1080p HD display is a big improvement over the original 720p dev kit, its pixels are still visible (aka “screen door effect”) a constant reminder that you’re just wearing a screen on your face.
Some interesting plans for this kit. The high res does seem promising, but it’s early days yet so we’ll have to wait and see what happens with this kit.
