The stats on the Rapture HMD are very impressive indeed, but those stats are not what makes this virtual reality headset so amazing. What is amazing is what it is used in. It’s called “The Void” and if you had to nail it down you would call it a virtual reality experience within a physical and virtual reality environment. That might sound like a bit of a mouthful, but it’s also a bit of a mind full as well.
The HMD itself is just part of an experience that is made within a warehouse or building, not in the home like 99% of other VR experiences. The whole system is powered by a PC built into a backpack that you carry around. The best way to think about it is Lazer Quest within a VR experience. But the experience will all depend on what VR environment you fancy playing at the time. At the moment, it is not much more than an idea. But with the right funding, this could become a reality especially given that the tech is there to pull it off.
