Nowadays Chinese successfully copy everything possible from all over the world. Sometimes they succceed, sometimes fail but never give up. This time their ambitions raised so high that they decided to challenge the great and horrible – Oculus Rift itself.
A small developing team from Beijing created an alternative VR system and called it ANTVR Kit. The project description was loaded to a Kickstarter platform and now happy developers wait for a storm of investment offers. The inventors claim their creation has a strong potential to compete with such giants as Oculus Rift and Sony Morpheus. A differentiating point of ANTVR Kit is an all-in-one kit with a foldable controller that has no analogues in modern hi-tech companies.
Chinese estimated the total budget at $200,000. So far the project has collected about $90,000. It’s almost half of the sum needed and 35 days still remain.
