Razer OSVR a hackable VR headsetThe $199 OSVR aims to be easily deconstructed and upgradable, with an unscrew able body and Oculus DK2 compatibility. We try on the prototype for size.
Hi, Scott Stein. There's a lot of VR at CES this year. And, Razer is diving into the scene too, with OSVR. This is an attempt at open source virtual reality. What does that mean? Well, this head mounted display is meant to be interchangeable, and kinda hackable. So, people will buy it for $199 later this year. Should be able to buy other parts and pieces, and swap out displays and, and other elements as needed. This is compatible with other forms of virtual reality, Oculus DK2 kits, Linux, and Android. So, technically you could run a wire out of this, connect it to a HDMI belt box, and you could connect other, other elements as well. This has positional tracking. There are other companies that are gonna be partnering with this down the road. And each individual eyepiece is adjustable, which is something that's, not all VR headsets have and that's kinda nice to have. And there's a 5.5 inch 10 eDP display that's in here. The promise is that down the road you could actually swap out your own parts. And maybe if you find one that's higher res and you want to spend up or find a way to do it, you could do that. There are five screws on top to light open it up. And Razor is actually allowing you to check out the parts and the, the plans online and be able to 3D print your own parts if you feel inspired. So, VR hackers rejoice, OSVR is an attempt to enter that space. We'll see how it goes, but, there's a lot of VR's to show and there are a lot of goggles to put on my face. I'm Scott Stein here with the Razers OSVR. [MUSIC]
