OSVR HDK Unboxing

So I finally got my hands on the OSVR headset from Razer. I’m not going to lie, it took its sweet time getting here (about 2 months more than the initially projected date) but the sheer degree of awesome that is possessed by a VR headset helped negate all my irritation from the delay.

In other words, I was squealing like a child when I picked it up and began the unboxing. I hope my excitement translates to you, gentle reader!

About now is when the squealing reached supersonic levels.IMG_20151015_144431475IMG_20151015_144443954IMG_20151015_143516892

The HDK itself seems to be divided into:

  1. The headset
  2. HDMI cables for the headset
  3. Some sort of audio cables that I haven’t yet figured out how to use
  4. The power supply
  5. The positional tracking kit (i.e. the Camera, a tripod stand and relevant cabling)
  6. A cleaning brush
  7. A hub for all the cables to connect into

And there you have it!

The link below is the official GitHub repository of the OSVR project, and contains all the instructions I needed to get everything setup and test the headset out in an actual VR demo.

Suffice to say, I was blown away.

I hope this was of help/interest to anyone looking for more info on the OSVR project.
