Morpheus prototype 2015

PlayStation VR[edit]

PlayStation VR (PSVR) describes a virtual reality system for the PlayStation 4. It was first announced as Project Morpheus at GDC 2014 with showing several prototype designs. It was available October 13, 2016 with a $399 price tag.


The prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted with a 5.7-inch LCD panel, display with 1080p resolution (960 x RGB x 1080 resolution per eye) and a 100 ° Field of view (FOV).

Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PS camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time.

Project Morpheus also features new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation.

In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DualShock 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move.
