Razer has announced its new platform called OSVR and a new virtual reality (VR) headset.
The head mounted display features a 5.5-inch 1080×1920 FHD resolution with 60fps and 401ppi.
Other features include an external 3.0 USB port and two USB 3.0 connections for internal expansion.
The open-source virtual reality (OSVR) ecosystem, which Razer is supporting with the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit, enables programming for any variety of VR technology.
The open platform will allow third parties to design and build their own apps across any hardware, including Android, Windows and Linux.
Min Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer, said: “Gaming is moving towards the virtual reality platform and this poses huge benefits and challenges to gamers at every level.”
The OSVR Hacker Dev Kit also includes low distortion optics that helps to eliminate the need for colour and distortion correction.
The platform will be available in the US only for now and will ship in June for $199.99 (£131).
It isn't just VR we'r doing with OSVR but democratizing it for everyone. And with an open source $199 HDK too.
