New VR Project Enters The Fray- True Player Gear
In development since 2005.
Oculus Rift [and Sony’s VR Headset] has been the dominant forces on the virtual reality front for some time now, but it looks like (at least from what we’ve gathered so far) that a new, potentially major player has entered the field. True Player Gear is a 3D VR Mask with head and body tracking that will support the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
According to some other details posted by the devs, moving your head up and down will allow you to select options and switch to real world view. The headset will also accept input rom the USB mouse, Dualshock and Xbox controller.
Supposedly, this has been in development for a long time- it was first founded back in 2005 in Montreal. The devs of the hardware also revealed the full specs. They’re as follows:
- 6.6″ x 4.4″ x 5.4″
- 1080p OLED screen
