Razer’s open source virtual reality project now supports Android devices
Razer’s open source virtual reality project will support Android, which opens up the future of this mind-altering world to multiple devices.
Along with this change to version 1.2 of Razer’s “Hacker Development Kit,” the team will also add in positional tracking. This is a key piece, as it allows you to experience the environment in a more realistic manner, without a disconnect between moving the position of your head and your view in the virtual environment. For example, if you lean forward then you could get a closer look at what you’re looking at, such as a spaceship control panel.
Those who want to get their hands on the latest update can head to the OSVR Github for all the requisite code.
Why this matters: By pushing an open source virtual reality toolkit, Razer, a company with a deep tie into PC gaming hardware, is giving developers another option for building a virtual reality experience outside of the Facebook-owned Oculus, Google-backed Cardboard, or Valve’s Steam VR. We’re still in the early days of this technology, so expect a lot of new tools and experiences to come from all the companies who want their piece of VR dominance
