Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, and Sensics, a leader in high-performance VR, today announced additional partners for the Open Source Virtual Reality (OSVR) ecosystem.

Since its award-winning announcement at CES 2015, OSVR has signed 13 new members, including Jaunt, a pioneering company in cinematic VR. Other companies are in talks with Razer and Sensics.

“The reception of OSVR exceeded even our own expectations and we’re working through numerous partner requests since CES,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Being able to bring together companies doing amazing work in all areas of virtual reality can accelerate consumer-ready devices and improve overall user experiences.”

OSVR aims to standardize the creation and enjoyment of content for virtual reality devices and software. Razer and Sensics will support the venture with the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit, a virtual reality device and open-source software that enables programming for any variety of VR technology.
