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.
