The impressively svelte VRGE VR headset dock has passed the 50% mark of its $30,000 Kickstarter campaign goal. With support for the Vive, Rift, and PlayStation VR (and their respective controllers), the dock appears to be a smart accessory for VR early adopters, but it won’t be a sure thing until the campaign is fully funded.
The VRGE VR headset dock is a smartly designed bit of kit, with multiple finish options and universal support for the three major VR headsets presently on the market. It includes adapters to not only hold the respective VR controllers as well, but will also charge them while docked (except in the case of the Touch controllers, which use AA batteries). Wire-routing channels on the bottom of the dock aim to keep everything neat and tidy.
In addition to extra storage space inside the base for cables and gamepads, the $80 dock is designed to work sitting down or mounted to a wall.
The creators behind the project have already shown prototype models and promise product delivery as early as April, which would be a very fast turnaround compared to many Kickstarter products which have little more than a rendering to show at the outset.
Still, the VRGE dock isn’t a sure thing just yet. The company sought $30,000 to kickstart the production of the accessory, and recently passed the 50% mark. With their campaign hinging on the ‘All or nothing’ funding model, it looks like it’ll be a race to the finish in the last week of the Kickstarter.
