Zeiss' Cinemizer OLED impresses as an immersive VR gaming experience

There has been a fair amount of press about Oculus VR, the virtual reality headset being manufactured by Oculus Rift, but it's not the only horse in the show. Respected ocular company Carl Zeiss has come out with its own immersive video headset, beating the Oculus VR to the market by months.

The story is too old to be commented.

$799!? They had no choice but to release it months ahead of Occulus Rift. When that releases, everyone will scoff at such a ridiculous price point.

It's $999 if you get the head tracking and whatnot.

I think the Ouya proves that being there first isn't always the best strategy.

Expansive! for that price u get a good 60 inch tv..

@News10GameGuys, "whatnot" wtf is this word? speak proper English please.

Some free advice for you, if you're going to criticise someone make sure you're right and don't make mistakes yourself. Although not used 'expansively' today, 'whatnot' is an English word, which brings me to my second point. The glasses may enlarge and enhance the user's experience and thus be called 'expansive', but it is also very 'expensive'.

sorry double post

I'll wait until one of these companies comes up with a very light weight motorcycle style helmet version where the shield is a 1080p screen, a installed mic, head tracking and 7.1 or 5.1 speakers positioned inside for true surround sound.

Carl Zeiss.. Ever since i heard about the lenses on camcorders i always thought that name would suit a drink more.

Sounds like Carl's Ice.

Whitey2k1289d ago

i think sony should invest summit like this so u can play through ur glasses with built in speakers and a mic if someone wanted to watch television

Cupid_Viper_31289d ago

Um...Sony have already thought of that 2 years prior to this.

Bonerboy1289d ago

Jesus! 800! At that base price it had better come with some kind of penis stimulator device too.
