The WIDE5 is an HMD (Head Mounted Display) from Fakespace Labs. With a very much industrial aim, it has stats that are bang up to date here in 2015! But it’s main feature is all in its name. The massive 150° Ultra Wide Field of View is something that blows many headsets out of the water.

Daniel Small from Sandia National Laboratories said this about it:”The most exciting development I have seen in VR in the last 20 years.” which is strong praise indeed from someone who works with this kind of tech day in and day out. I don;t think us public should be getting too whipped up as it will be a long time before tech this good is affordable. Given that this device was made in 2006 it is quite frankly a technological milestone of a headset that I’m sure a lot of the wide FOV headsets like the Star VR use today.
