eyeForce VR Headset Raises $10,000 in 24 Hours on Kickstarter

SHANGHAI, CHINA, AUGUST 25, 2016 – The team at eyeForce is thrilled to announce that their newly launched Kickstarter campaign has raised $10,000 within the first 24 hours.

The Kickstarter campaign is busily raising awareness and funds for the company’s newest product, the eyeForce VR headset. The leading-edge virtual reality headset offers a stunning 210-degree field of view.

According to avid VR fan Daniel Lucid, “Peripheral vision is super important for full immersion…Many games/experiences are quite hard because a field of vision is lacking. For example, I sometimes miss balls in ‘Audioshield’ simply because they are slightly outside the area of view. Every degree counts.”

In fact, we human has a 210-degree field of view. Both eyes could see 120 of the level. The eyeForce headset offers an enhanced field of view that eliminate black periphery and replaces bilateral blackness with a bilateral landscape. Users get a more immersive experience.

“With other VR headsets, you feel you see the world through the holes, as you see the world with your hands encircled around your eyes. With eyeForce, you feel you are just at the scene,” said the eyeForce team.

The eyeForce headset also features 3840*1080 (4K) resolution with a latency of less than 20ms. The headset’s position tracking camera works at 100HZ for high precision, and both pupil and focal distance can be adjusted. Users will need a GTX970/AMD R9 290 or above graphics card and two display interfaces, such as 1 HDMI and 1 DVI, are required.

A recently released video demonstrates features of the eyeForce VR headset.

eyeForce aims to raise $50,000 via Kickstarter to fuel the company’s projected February 2017 production start date. Until then, the company will focus on final mechanics and electronics design, certification and component sourcing, tests and tooling, and more.

Pledgers will receive exclusive perks, such as an eyeForce starter pack, early bird eyeForce headsets, prototypes of eyeForce headsets, and more.
