There are plenty of exciting virtual reality systems in the works. But we are going to need an open source platform, so all these systems and apps can communicate with each other. That’s what Open Source Virtual Reality is all about. It aims to address industry fragmentation, adoption, and other common issues in this market. The kit includes a HMD module with integrated accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. You also get a 5.5″ FHD display, 1080p resolution, USB ports, a near-eye-display system and 100-degree FoV.
The kit sets you back $199.99 and ships in June 2015. You can also build your own if you have a 3D printer.
