Vuzix is definitely beefing up their HMD offerings, though it's not quite VR and is more a personal viewer at this stage.  The interview helps explain things better.

Personally, I don't think they have anything for Virtual reality to compete which is why he avoided the question. Their price point may be higher than either Oculus or Vive, Fove etc...

This is basically a Sony HMZ that allows possibly more inputs.

All in all no thank you Vuzix

AT $250 i would buy this in a blink...
AT $300 i may still consider it just make screens OLED ,,,, Why?

1) It can create IMAX without screen door.
2) Can hookup with almost all devices with HDMI out.
3) 60 Degree is indeed Magical Number...I have personal experience
Movie kind of being at verge of uncomfortable still bearable but
3D games Blast at 60 Degree... With all corner clear total distortion
free image truly makes me want it.
4) There is current tech already there to make more than 500 titles
compatible but so that RIFT too can doo in VR Room mode but its
locked at XBOX one(There is community who can make alternate..So not
kind of a point). Still it will have Screen Door due to magnification


If screen OLED and price $300 this thing can rock... Sadly at 450/500/600
bad deal.
