Developer James Talbot has today kicked off the Kickstarter campaign for the AuraVisor VR head mounted display device which claims to be the world’s first device that is standalone and doesn’t require connection to a computer or smartphone thanks to an in built quad core system. What’s neat about this is the fact it converts 2D content to Real 3D and can allow games consoles and such like to be plugged in via HDMI if desired (we assume offering a large virtual screen display for playing – much like the Xbox One support for Oculus Rift). For more info head on over to the official site or make a pledge on the kickstarter page and snag one for £141 which is over half the price of the full version that will ship in 2016.
EDIT: In 24 hours over half of the £100,000 Kickstarter goal has been reached so if you’re after the heavily discounted version then act fast as they are going fast.
