Catering to the tech industry itself is a slew of other VR devices, like the Razer OSVR, which is designed to make life easier for developers making virtual reality software. Leading the pack is Microsoft’s Hololens, which is billed as the first self-contained holographic computer. The headset is sold in two versions: the $3,000 Development Edition and the $5,000 Commercial Suite, which includes better support, as well as added security and device management features for enterprise users. Both are targeted for the development community as Microsoft positions itself to be the favorite platform for gaming companies down the line. —with additional reporting from Relaxnews
