Is the new Virtual Retinal Display Headset a Threat to Oculus Rift?

It seems like Oculus Rift finally has some competition just around the corner. Avegant, a US based tech company has developed what they call a Virtual Retinal Display Headset that, unlike the Oculus Rift, actually beams reflective light directly into your eyes.

 

The team claims that the device is natively high definition resulting in 1280X800 resolution per eye, however critics of the device are quick to point out that it’s field of view of far less than the Oculus Rift at only about 10 degrees.

As stated in the CNet interview however the developers of the VRD do not consider Oculus Rift as their main competition as they are considering their market a media consumption device and not a 3d gaming device. This could be great news for those that were disappointed in how the Oculus actually played straight movies.

What do you think? Will the Virtual Retinal Display be a threat to Oculus Rift? How long before the device is available for our favorite use…Porn!!

      The BIG difference is that this VRD (Virtual Retinal Display) sends the light directly into your retina while the Sony VR Headset is using OLED screens and alot of people that have used it said it is very eye strainning and it is a little to heavy so after a while you’ll begin feeling pain in your neck while the people developing VRD are saying that it is not eye strainning at all and if in that case it is a revolutionary design because even on normal lcd screens or other screens you get eye strain over time. Personally I enjoyed the Oculus rift far more than the Sony VR Headset because the Oculus gives me a feeling of being inside the game or what ever “other” stuff I’m using it for 😉 while Sony’s VR Headset felt like being in a big movie theatre room with a headset around your head and when watching movies or having extended gaming sessions with it my eyes felt extremly tired after an hour or so

        Ah I said it twice sorry :&

      2. Hi Chris, thanks for stopping by.

        Thanks for the clarification, that makes sense. I didn’t realize the Sony VR was so potentially uncomfortable. Although there seems to be something potentially “uncomfortable” about light being shot directly into your retina.

        If the Sony VR begins being uncomfortable visually in under an hour I wonder how effective it would be for watching movies. That’s why I was considering it over the Rift for actual movie watching.

        Do you think the final retail version of the Oculus rift will have the ability to watch movies?

    That video was pretty compelling and agree don’t see it as something that they could angle towards the adult world, but who knows they might. Adult producers and content makers usually find a way to get anything these days to angle towards adult. Since it reflects on the retina directly though, it is probably aimed for vision challenged people possibly. The thing needs a new design though, can’t imaging walking around or plugged in with that thing on. At least the Oculus Rift is nicer designed than this, but glad to see technology evolving like this.
