Vrvana Totem Virtual Reality Headset

The dominant player in the [upcoming] virtual reality headset market is finally facing some stiff competition in Vrvana’s Totem. Armed with full 360° tracking using two on-board cameras, low-latency processing, immersive binaural sound using HRTF, compatibility with every mainstream OS and console barring the Wii, plus full 1080p HD resolution, Totem holds its own against the Oculus Rift, and then some. It’s also compatible with glasses, though it eliminates the need for them thanks to individual lens focusing. Plus, the same front-facing cameras used for tracking let you switch back to the real world seamlessly at the push of a button to grab your keyboard or reach for a drink without removing the set.
