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.
The HDK itself seems to be divided into:
- The headset
- HDMI cables for the headset
- Some sort of audio cables that I haven’t yet figured out how to use
- The power supply
- The positional tracking kit (i.e. the Camera, a tripod stand and relevant cabling)
- A cleaning brush
- A hub for all the cables to connect into
And there you have it!
The OSVR HDK unboxed.
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.
