Good day, my name is Dmitry, I am 32 years old, I am the founder and chief engineer of the Russian helmet virtual reality VRD. Our helmet at the moment the game supports the Oculus Rift DK1, DK2 will work with, but most interesting is that we now use 2 screens with a resolution of 2560×1440. This is a more current version of most other VR-helmets.
The idea is to create your own virtual reality helmet came to me about a year ago. The first prototypes were hand-glued cardboard, cut from a piece of plastic, and the optics was used for the first lenses with plus diopters maximum. Winter created the first working prototype with its own screen, corps, hastily printed on a 3D printer, and card sensors based on STM32Discovery boards. With the end of winter 2015, I was joined by two associates, and the work went more.
First of all, we have decided to concentrate their efforts on developing the electronic part of the device for compatibility with games and 3D applications VR. At this point of the game is a cornerstone block for most of our clients. Of course, in this article we will not describe the whole complicated and a long way for the development of electronics and software parts of the helmet (although it is very interesting!). As a result at the end of summer was released the first beta version of the device with support for Oculus Rift DK1 games that you can already buy.
Now (in secret) we have already approached very closely to the format of the Oculus Rift DK2, and there is hope that it will be implemented in the coming months. This further extends the list of supported games and modes helmet. As promised analysts, in the next five years, the market for VR devices and technologies will grow, and by 2020 will reach significant volumes.
We decided not to stay away and to develop such technologies in Russia, as the train VR has not gone too far. The global crisis and the volatility of the currency markets only help us. I think this is a good chance.
Each of our team is an expert in his field, but all of us share a genuine interest in various technological gizmos. While we did not attract investment and all that already — the result of his own investment of funds, expertise and time.
Our clients and all who support us, creating this new and amazing in its capabilities the world of VR with the team VRDevice. Returned the floor to the readers. Want to get the word out and tell about your startup.
