with a headset, two controllers and a charging base that features a camera and offloaded processing, the system advances the industry towards more consumer friendly products without sacrificing the immersive, interactive qualities set by HTC and oculus. nod labs plans to fill the void between expensive headsets and entry-level systems like google ‘cardboard’ and samsung ‘gear VR’ by launching a developer software and hardware kit.
