Have a question?
@Chris, the 2D/3D button sounds like good news if it is like their first HMD. I would think that would be to hook any HDMI source up to it like a DVD player or a game console and use 2D mode to make the same image go to each eye or 3D mode for SBS 3D material. I wasn't sure if this one would have that same option. Do you have a regular HDMI source you can plug into it to test it?
They really seem to be lacking on the English communication.
I also paid 60 euro. I think the Dutch customs are a bit smarter than to just accept the $80 that was on the packing slip though.
It's hard to compare as I can't get it to work! All of the instructions are in Chinese, so it's probably me not understanding. The 2D/3D mode button doesn't seem to work - I get a distorted screen whatever. I found something called Antvrhall which says it's all connected but it seems to refer to steam games and the steam bit doesn't like it.
What are your initial thoughts on it compared to the original?
Thanks for the info. That's about 88 dollars Canadian. Hopefully it is not much more than that for Canada.
I have paid 60 euro for customs
Glad to hear some people got theirs. Did you have to pay any customs fees? I know it will be different for Canada than Netherlands just wondering what to expect.
My box has literally just arrived (I'm also in the Netherlands)
I expect the parcel tomorrow

Voor het einde van de dag
I just received my tracking number this morning.
anyone one get a tracking number yet? or did these not ship on 15th?
Please translate at least the "core" web pages to english. Because most of the text is as image. In this case Google Translation failed to translate the page.
I can not even make a simple registration for AntVR Hall on your website (http://www.antvr.com/toregist.do). :-(
I received an email this morning saying they plan on sending the cyclop out on Aug 15 but said they could not find my name as a backer which is strange as I seem to be the only backer they are speaking too. I emailed back with my backer number. Let's see what happens.
I am really looking forward to running this through the paces :)
Thank you Dave for sharing this information/update
Perhaps you will get 2 Cyclops because you make the work of AntVR? :-D
AntVR: Please post such information on this plattform, too. The other bakers want also know it. Thank you
Thanks @Dave! Sort of usefull information for me.)
I just received an update from AntVR
Thanks for your email, we are upgradding the cyclop now, we are optimizating the cyclop in order to a better experience when you use it, please wait more time, our research team is doing this now, I think we can send you better product in August or July.
I know it's not much but figured I would share.
How comes the promise of delivering the ANTVR 2? Thanks folks
no gun sensor update and no antvr 2 giveaway promise. They slap our head TWICE????
They had been communicating with me via email up until April and kept saying April for sure but since April first I have messaged them several times and they have not responded.
When can we finally expect the delivery of the AntVR 2? The last update regarding CES is also back 5 months ago?
The website is still useless for non-chinese people. :-(
Still haven't heard anything more about those 2nd gen units that were going to be sent out to feedback folks in April... been on sale in the Asian market, places like GearBest, for awhile now.
Does anyone know anything?
“BOLT DRONE” starting at ~$150, inclusive of HMD! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1394449697/bolt-drones-introducing-a-whole-new-flight-experie
I'm thrilled to adopt the second generation HMD ANTVR!
Thank you for sharing your information with us and thank you for your answer.
I wish they would update here as well but since they are not I just want to share the little bit they are sharing with me.
I am not sure why. It usually takes them quite awhile to respond but they always have. I they replaced my original headset when mine stopped working which also took quite a long time. Their customer service has not been great for me but they always have helped eventually. Though for me to get touch with them initially I tried about 10 different email addresses before I got a response. The email that has worked for me was email@example.com if you want to try as well.
@dave: Why you are the only one who get infos/updates from ANTVR? Sound a little bit strange to me.
Why they can't publish an update here?
I just received another email from ANTVR confirming that they will be shipping the free Cyclops in April.
I was promised a Cyclops unit but have not seen it yet.
The last news I received from ANTVR was that they would be shipping in April at the latest and that was in Feb. With April fast approaching hopefully we hear something soon.
Totally looks like it sells. At least in Chinese home market. Did anybody get any news from ANTVR?)
Here's unboxing video from Russia. https://youtu.be/HVB6oE3LERQ Looks good
2 ½ months later without any news. :-(
Also (similarly), there is the "GHOSTDRONE VR" http://www.ehang.com/product/specs/ (with a larger human ridable version, apparently not VR steerable yet).
Good catch @KydDynoMyte
@Chris Kemper That looks very familiar to the AOC headset we saw last August. All the buttons, the angled down pass through camera, even the red tint of the faceplate.
I received an email today saying they are currently working on international certification and will be shipping in April at the latest.
Any news on the new release timeframe ANTVR?
Upcoming new Pimax 4k with 200 degree fov seems very attractive. its Steamvr and Vorpx compatible.
Thank you! I hope the CES feedback is well received
I do not want to flood this board with When Is It Coming questions.... But an update would be nice....
Hm... no gift for this christmas :-(
Any updates on this?
Now website content is only chinese again. :-(
Hi, my ANTVR is out of order, you said that i will get a new one for free (thats more than a year ago ) here your original post : "
20. März 2015
I am so sorry for it.
While there is no headset for the first batch. I think it is better that we send you a 2K version headset. While it may need several months.
What do you think about it? "
so there are a few other conversations via faceebook too, there you said the same, that i would get a new one for free. because my antvr doesnt work !
it would be very kind of you , when i can get a new one , please come in contact with me and answer my questions and help me with that problem.
Thanks Dave & Pascal
New english AntVR website is online (btw: page title is still in the wrong language). Nice new product documentation. I'm really excited about the new headset. Hopefully we will get it before christmas. :-)
Ah well, if they had implemented standard 2.4Ghz networking, as I indicated they should back on 6/20/2014+, this might be a more fitting fun companion product: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1970204458/tanky-drone-insanely-fast-fpv-racing-quadcopter…
