York, England — Memo to Facebook, you bought the wrong company. AuraVisor has officially just become the first true Virtual Reality game changer in the industry. James Talbot. CEO of AuraVisor, wants the industry to know that his AuraVisor is definitely the most cutting edge product. It’s the first virtual reality system that doesn’t need to be connected to a computer or smartphone. Its on-board computer allows you to break free from other devices and experience the ultimate in virtual reality.
Talbot is still in shock over Oculus Rift’s Founder Palmer Lucky’s recent tweets that were circulated over the major tech sites that the industry is not ready for the mass market until VR can get rid of the $1,000 high-end PCs that are connected to the headsets via wires.
Talbot said, “We beg to differ and that is the essence of our Kickstarter campaign. AuraVisor has everything you need embedded in the headset now to experience VR without the need for a separate computer, connected by wires or even a smartphone.”
AuraVisor is a virtual reality head mounted computer (HMC) that works without a computer or smartphone, free from the clutter of wires and the hassle of interchanging a smart phone. AuraVisor has an on-board Android based operating system that allows you to experience the immersion of virtual reality, and all it offers, without breaking the budget.
The built in 5″ screen delivers full 1080 HD video and a wide 100° field of vision means that the AuraVisor provides a truly immersive gaming experience but, more than that, it’s a completely standalone entertainment system. AuraVisor fully supports 3D movies. Imagine watching the latest action films in full 3D on the equivalent of a 100 foot screen.
AuraVisor has powerful on-board Wi-Fi and a simple smart scrolling graphical user interface. Simply turn on, download and immerse yourself in whatever activity you like.
Users have the ability to download more content, including games, videos and apps from the VR store. The VR store is based on, and linked to, the Google Play Store. With support for popular video apps such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube, and gaming engines such as Unity and Unreal Engine. AuraVisor supports almost every entertainment and gaming option a user would need. A HDMI input allows users to connect a computer or gaming system for even more content. AuraVisor includes 16GB of on board memory, with an expandable microSD slot, users can add their own content and provide additional storage space for apps.
AuraVisor features a built-in Lithium Ion battery which provides more than five hours of power. With included Bluetooth gaming controller, microUSB charging cable, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI 2.0 input and support for 4K UHD video at 60fps, AuraVisor will immerse users into the latest and greatest content available today, at a price that everyone can afford.
Currently available as part of our Kickstarter launch are options such as additional adult and children-sized faceplates and a Power Bank Battery, designed specifically for AuraVisor allowing additional gaming and entertainment time. Other features and options will be announced soon.
With over 600 backers, the AuraVisor Kickstarter campaign has already smashed its $150,000 funding goal in little over a week. For more information on the Kickstarter campaign, please visit here.
