31 Jan Razer OSVR, the alternative “Android” Oculus Rift
Oculus Rift now needs no introduction, as opposed to the new system in augmented reality Razer, which was presented at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, not without surprise present: the company, in fact, it looks like the ‘Android augmented reality, since the system in question is an open source which may allow, and that comes just for this purpose, to bring the augmented reality on all types of hardware (obviously on the advanced ones).
At CES 2015, the information was not very many, but jumped to the eye the price offered by the company: Razer OSVR is available at less than two hundred euro, and by the way the SDK is already pre-order on the official website of the company; not a high figure, if you consider what the company promises and what it could do any manufacturer with a little of creativity.
The development kit is available for anyone, and it is interesting that all the system seems to be able to adapt, at least in its basic elements, to any type of hardware: a guide improvements Razer OSVR, in effect, will not only be the software, but also the product in and of itself. A great novelty, therefore, consists of lenses (distortion rate of 13%, 60 fps, 1080px and 401 dpi), a tracker for head movements and all that we have seen in systems of this type, with the addition of USB 3.0 connectivity.
The CEO Min-Liang Tan seems to be very satisfied with his OSVR, and also between consumers and the press curiosity is clearly visible: although at the moment the system is only pre-order, and will be sent only to some developers without pre-order, Razer promised that in March we will know more. Of course we will keep you updated.
