Gaming peripheral maker Razer is the latest company to throw its hat in the virtual reality ring.

As reported by Games Industry, Razer announced at CES that it has been working with VR firm Sensics on an “open-source virtual reality (OSVR) ecosystem".

Its first OSVR Hacker Dev Kit will be available in the States in June for US$200 (NZ$258), which Razer says is the cost price of the unit.

The company will make both the hardware and accompanying software open-source, so those so inclined can download schematics to build their own kit.

OSVR will support Unity 3D, Unreal Engine, and device plug-ins from hardware makers like Bosch, Sixense, and LeapMotion. It will even work with rival VR devices like the most recent Oculus Rift dev kit and Vrvana's Totem.

Razer also unveiled its own Android-based microconsole, the Razer Forge TV.

Forge TV will allow users to play Android games from the Google Play store on a TV with up to three other players, and it will also allow PC games to be streamed to the living room, provided said games run on DirectX 9 or higher. It will cost US$100, or US$150 with Razer's Serval controller.

Those keen for PC controls on the couch can use the Razer Turret, a wireless mouse-and-lapboard combo that will sell for US$130.
