The Open Source Virtual Reality or OSVR is an open-source software project that aims to enable headsets from all vendors and game controllers from all vendors to be used with any games. It is also a virtual reality headset that is open-source hardware and uses the open-source software.

The headset is developed by Razer and Sensics.

First model of the headset was introduced on January 2015 in CES. Shipping to select developers started on July 2015. Pre-order was opened to the general public by October and shipping started by November 2015.

Project information[edit]

OSVR has two main and independent parts: open-source hardware and open-source software.

The hardware consist of virtual reality goggles called the Hacker Development Kit.

The open source software platform allows virtual reality developers to detect, configure and operate virtual reality devices across a wide range of operating systems. It is provided under the Apache 2.0 license.

The project is primarily sponsored by Razer and Sensics. Partners in the project include game developers Ubisoft and hardware manufacturers Vuzix.
