Razer OSVR HDK 1

PC Headset

From$259.99

Product Summary

The OSVR is taking a different approach to Virtual reality through its completely open source platform designed to advance standards in the VR world.

While directing their headset to gamers alike, they also want to grab the attention of developers and VR enthusiasts in the hope that they can inspire a new generation of gaming, help VR excel forward to be the best it can be. So by introducing a VR headset to the market, they believe they can push people to advance the VR software.

With the primary focus being on inspiring developers, they may not have concentrated on comfort as much as other VR producers, yet they have still included the required rubber padding to minimise discomfort during play. It is also equipped with the typical head straps for any necessary readjustment.

Much like the Oculus rift or HTC vive the OSVR shares a similar design with its counterparts but for a fraction of the cost. Striking a clear balance between being fully modular, recognizable but simple to use, the Headset is one of the more polished developer marketed headsets available. Cables too are hidden away and can be conveniently connected directly to to a hip unit preventing the device from becoming a trip hazard.

There’s much more to see from what could be considered as an underdog in the race for VR and it’s exciting to see VR developers have such a passion for what they do that they want to pass it on. It might not have state of the art technology compared to the high end market headsets released but has a lot more potential to be developed further.
