Out of nowhere, a new player has butted in to intrude into the VR space. Watch out, Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift, as True Player Gear has arrived. Bear in mind, the little information we have is culled from their online presence.
Their Facebook page reveals True Player Gear is no late to the party entrant, having been founded in 2005 in Montreal. They refer to themselves as a 3D VR Mask with head and body tracking for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
True Player Gear has revealed specs on their site, implying they have a device that may be ready to release very, very soon. Without further ado, here they are:
· 6.6" x 4.4" x 5.4"
· 1080p OLED screen
· 90 degrees FOV
· HDMI connectivity
· USB output, for head and body tracking
· 2x cameras 1080p
· 3 axis 1kHz gyro
· 3 axis 4kHz accel
· 3 axis magnetometer
· Supports Unreal, Unity, Havok, CryEngine game engines
· Accepts all 3D format media, preferably SBS
Moving your head up and down allows you to select options, and switch to real world view. The device will also accept input from the USB mouse, Dualshock and Xbox controller.
Everything looks like it’s on the up and up so far, but with no release date or other information so far, we can only take their word for it that this is the real thing. We’ll make sure to stay up to date on information on this device, but if you want to do that yourself, you can follow their site, Facebook page, and Twitter @TruePlayerGear.
