GET VR HARDWARE!

I’ll add in links to hardware that I am using/have bought/intend to buy as I go along! ¬†Another Work In Progress! ūüôā

I currently pay for this site out of my own pocket and any contributions towards keeping things hosted etc would be great.

So… if you are going to be buying anything from Amazon soon anyway and you click through to their site from one of these links then I will get a kick back of sorts –¬†every penny helps and would be muchly appreciated!

Obviously – not doing the above is 100% OK too ūüôā ¬†Enjoy!

Stuff I have

Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2) (currently $350)¬†–¬†Oculus
 

Currently only recommended for developers or those that cannot wait, but willing to accept that this is still a product in development.  The CV1 (Customer Version) promises higher resolution and more creature comforts, but is not expected to be out until 2014. DK2 should be available from June/July 2014.

Oculus Rift Development Kit 1 (DK1) (currently $300)¬†–¬†Oculus¬†– SOLD OUT!
Razer Hydra 

Currently only recommended for developers or those that cannot wait, but willing to accept that this is still a product in development. ¬†The new one promises higher resolution and more creature comforts, but won’t be out for a while…

Razer Hydra¬†–¬†Amazon¬†==BUYING IN THE UK!==//==BUYING IN THE US!==
Razer Hydra 

Currently being used by some developers for hand position tracking and even¬†head tracking. ¬†There was an offer on the Razer site a while ago, but they were out of stock in the UK ūüôĀ

Graphics Card РAsus Nvidia GeForce 2GB GTX 680 РAmazon ==BUYING IN THE UK!==//==BUYING IN THE US!==
Nvidia GTX680 Graphics Card 

I bought an¬†entire new rig¬†as my laptop was too slow. ¬†The graphics card was probably the most important thing though as the Oculus Rift will not work well with low frame rates…

Kinect for Windows РAmazon ==BUYING IN THE UK!==//==BUYING IN THE US!==
Kinect for PC 

I bought mine on eBay and it worked, but later found out I needed to buy a separate Power Supply. ¬†There are also multiple models so probably safer to go to Amazon and get the official Windows version… Microsoft provide their Fusion SDK and various samples for free.

XBox Wireless Controller РAmazon ==BUYING IN THE UK!==//==BUYING IN THE US!==
xbox wireless controller 

I bought mine on Amazon.  This controller seemed to be the best supported by most titles.
