VRgineers, the company that develops the high-end wide-FOV VR headset “XTAL” for the enterprise sector, is planning to bring their knowledge and experience in the space to the consumer market. A new VR headset is planned right now that pushes the envelope in the high-end VR enthusiast market, but yet should be much more affordable than the current XTAL headset that comes in at $5800. These plans have just been revealed to MRTV on a recent company visit to the VRgineers headquarters in Prague.
Next to MRTV the VRgineers had also invited the other two YouTubers that were closely involved in the Beta testing program of competing VR headset manufacturer Pimax, SweViver and VoodooDe. VRgineers have asked MRTV and the other two YouTubers to be involved in the development process of the new device and to provide suggestions and experience since all three YouTube channels are at the pulse of the VR enthusiast market and know what VR enthusiasts and gamers are really looking for in a high-end VR headset.
MRTV, SweViver and VoodooDE are currently in talks with the VRgineers to work out the details of the planned cooperation. Since the stage at that MRTV as well as the other YouTubers would join development is much earlier than it was the case with the Pimax 8K headset, the prospects of being able to help shape such a high-end VR enthusiast headset are of course very exciting.
Stay tuned to MRTV to find out about the latest news on this developing story.
