Impression Pi VR/AR headset
$279 (about £190) for phone-based model, $349 (about £235) for phoneless model impressionpi.com
What is it? The Impression Pi headset is nothing if not ambitious. It’s wireless, will feature head tracking and be location-aware (something the Oculus Rifts needs a Leap Motion controller to do), all the while combining both virtual and augmented reality. Oh, and the headset happens to look a pretty picture too. When’s it due? Get one in December 2015. Why are we excited? VR is hard and the likes of Oculus and Project Morpheus have been beset with problems. The Impression Pi wants to do a lot, but if it can pull it off we may end up with the best headset in the world.
