    Will this be a Kickstarter project? If so I think it would do quite well.... Welcome to the forum by the way. Nice to have some more innovative people here. I love what you are doing and have to admit I'm quite surprised at how far along you guys are since this is the first time I'm hearing about you.

    Best of luck, I'd say haptics are the next big hurdle for VR and the first one to tackle that hurdle in an elegant and affordable way is going to have a huge market. I would also be interested to hear about any possible future crowdfunding efforts.

    @Jordan: The cost need to be determined. Doing one Unit is more than 700$ for now, but do not worry, production cost will help a lot.

    @WildPhil1988: It seems KickStarter one of the best avenue right now to provide hardware as a creation platform. Thank you! We didn't show a lot to the public right now, we love to have a solid idea to present instead of a big bubble that lead to a dead end project.

    @Anglerfish: Thank you, I totally agree that haptic is the next step. As for the "look", it is normal that elegant will win over bulky, but right now, we are working on performances over this. The best example is the Rift DK2 Vs Rift release version (Prove a concept, get the market after).
    As for the crowdfunding, do not worry, this option is on the table for a long time.

    Thank you again everyone for the great questions!
