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.

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.

    Their price for $80 for this dock is just overpriced IMHO
    Manufacturing cost is just few dollars, nothing special in it as a plastic box with internal power supply to recharge your controllers.

      That’s because it lacks the economy of scale. Tooling up is expensive. For an item that can be sold in the millions, spreading out that cost is easy to do. For something where they only expect to sell a few hundred to a few thousand units, that cost suddenly becomes a much bigger chunk of the price.

        Yeah tooling cost for the molds are the cost they will have for sure, the market is not really an issue as it works for all the 3 mayor HMD sets, there be ebought o sell if price is right.

      Just wait for these guys to send the specs to a Chinese factory for manufacturing. Then we should see the same product at fraction of the price from said factory.

    I orderer a few ones, granted this is a bit expensive but I mean…another big DUH for PC HMDs: why the heck wasn’t there any dock in the first place? But then a dock for a wired devices doesn’t make much sense either…

  • Rayza

    Too expensive

  • Sponge Bob

    dudes,

    all supported headsets (rift, vive etc) and their controllers will be relegated to junk bin as early as next year…

    so wtf cares about this product ?
