VR920 Virtual Reality Glasses

The Vuzix VR920 Virtual Reality Glasses come with the device which is labeled as iWear VR920, a head strap, drivers, manual, and can be purchased in tandem with an eyewear shield to block out all light. Needless to say, the VR920 is not intended to be worn while in a room with other people. The device is made out of heavy duty black plastic and includes two 640×480 (920,000 pixels) LCD displays, NVIDA Stereo, built in noise cancelling microphone, USB connection, Analog VGA output, and a view equivalent to a 62” screen viewed at 9 feet with a 32 degree field view.

Compatibility

If you plan on purchasing the VR920 virtual reality glasses, you can use it on any Windows computer including Vista, XP, and 7 including both 32 and 64 bit computers. These glasses are plug and play, but also come with a hardware disc but they are plug and play so you should be able to simply plug them in.  Notably, your graphics card has to support dual monitor display, meaning that if you cannot plug in a second screen and have it work on your computer, then you can’t use the VR920 virtual reality glasses. However, most computers have this capability.

Uses
