• OSVR is a development system meant to get VR on all kinds of hardware. It’s not an operating system, but Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan refers to it as the “Android of virtual reality,” an open-source software platform that encompasses multiple game engines, head-mounted displays, and control schemes.
  • Around two dozen companies and organizations, including Leap Motion, Virtuix, and the International Game Developers Association, are listed as supporters, and plugins are in the works for Unreal Engine 4 and the Unity 3D Engine.
  • The hacker dev kit will be released in June 2015, for the surprisingly low price of $199.99 (the same price as the screenless Gear VR, and $150 less than the Oculus DK2.) Software will be available sooner for some developers.
