It seems that not everyone is too happy about Facebook acquiring Oculus VR and we’re not sure why. However if you’re one of those who are upset at the acquisition, fret not because not only is there Sony’s Project Morpheus as an alternative, but there is also True Player Gear.
Wait, who? Well for those unfamiliar with True Player Gear, they are a company from Canada who has created a virtual reality headset of their own. The company has been around for about 6 years and they even debuted their technology back in E3 2006, but safe to say that things have definitely progressed from then until now.
In fact according to the company, they are planning on showing off their latest device at E3 later this year which will be taking place in June 2014 and they are also planning a Kickstarter project for the summer as well where presumably developers and interested gamers will be able to get their hands on the device.
The True Player Gear will feature 1920×1080 Full HD OLED displays and will offer a 90-degree field of view. The headset will also be equipped with twin 1080p cameras that could potentially be used to augment reality as well, a feature which the Oculus Rift is missing. There will also be sensors built into the device to allow for head movement tracking.
Either way we guess we’ll have to wait until E3 2014 to learn more about the True Player Gear, but in the meantime it looks like the virtual reality space is starting to heat up with competition, so it will be interesting to see how True Play Gear will hold up.
