Clicky for the Kickstarter page
Yes, another VR headset. This one looks a bit special though, assuming the claims are true. Low-latency tracking, massive FOV, compatibility with the big engines... Quite the impressive list of tech. It's also got some very big names putting their approval on it like Carmack, Cliffy B & Newell, so I would suggest there's certainly potential here. That's kinda what makes me a bit nervous about it as well: If it was that good, then these companies are big enough to swallow the firm and take a punt on it. Sure, perhaps Oculus don't want to sell out just yet as they feel there's a massive market for this, and I would suggest they might be right if (and it's a very big if) they can get Sony and MS on board to make it compatible with the consoles. If they can do that then they'll get mass market penetration, but if it stays PC-only it'll die on its arse like all others before it.
Can't say I'm not interested though!
