Virtual reality headsets are already very exciting to play around with. With Open Source Virtual Reality, we may see much better virtual reality solutions in the future. This is essentially a standard for virtual reality devices and games, addressing hardware/software fragmentation, industry adoption, and access to a VR development platform. With OSVR, each VR device and software is able to connect on a single open standard and work with other solutions, making life easier for developers.
The OSVR Hacker Dev Kit from Razer includes a HMD module with an accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. There will also be USB 3.0 ports, a 5.5″ FHD display (1080p @ 60fps), and a near-eye-display system with 100° FoV. Since the entire hardware design for OSVR is open source, you can build your own or download 3D files to create your own set of VR glasses. The Hacker Dev kit ships in June 2015 for under $200.
