A Beijing-based company,Â ANTVR Technology Co., Ltd., has created an open source version of the Oculus Rift and has reached $145,000Â of its $200,000 Kickstarter goal after just four days.
This particular device falls into the same category as the Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus, offering fully immersive virtual reality, a wide field of view, and head tracking.
Supporters can pre-order the ANTVR headsets for $270, a little less than the current cost of Oculus Rift development kits. Project Morpheus headsets are not currently available for order.
The new device is compatible with the Oculus Rift, and also comes with its own controller.
