Siemens Global Pl@yer

Siemens are not the first name that comes to mind when you think about virtual reality, but they know a lot more than you might think. While the marketing team was quick to jump on the VR bandwagon it is not a virtual reality headset as such, it’s more a wireless stereoscopic gaming system. Yep! You heard that right, this was going to be an HMD console!

While it might look like it only has one race game to come with it the wireless motion controller had lots of buttons and stick for all types of videogames. But Sony had already gone it’s foot in the door with the PlayStation and sadly this scared Siemens off from ever producing it. As a strange end to an otherwise good looking device, most of the design aspects and tracking software of this headset ended up being inside a cordless vacuum cleaner!
