VR Headsets From HP, Dell and More Coming Soon

Top PC makers will be joining the VR space in the future.

If you're interested in joining the VR space, you've got a lot more options coming down the pipeline. Announced during today's Microsoft Windows 10 event, the giant decided to let the news drop that it's partnering with companies like HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS and ACER to bring new VR headsets starting at $299 in 2017.

This is pretty big news since it will vastly expand the virtual reality equipment available out there. Not only will there be more options, but having more creators involved will mean more variety as well. This is absolutely a boon for anyone interested in the everchanging landscape of VR.

      Hopefully a standard can be realized so I can peice together a vr system the way I want without the fear of getting betamaxed. Thats pretty much the only reason I dont have a vive.

      I'm just wondering if some of these guys are underestimating what it takes to get one of these headsets made and working in such a way that it can be competitive (and affordable).

      I'm assuming if these are coming out next year, they are already deep into development... or I would hope so.

      Did they mention what API they are gonna use? I assume OpenVR/SteamVR because it's a tall order to keep adding new SDK support for all of these.

        I bet they roll their own, because they'll have a lot of this already for hololens and they'll want it to not be too different.

      I noticed this today as well. Someone wrote a Mac app that lets you plug in your PS VR into your computer and it does the head tracking etc to watch 3D 360 videos. The future is now! https://www.reddit.com/r/PSVR/comments/59gf4n/macmorpheus_the_macos_app_that_can_play_3d_180360/
