      I just received an update from AntVR

      "Dear David,

      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.

      Best reagards
      ANTVR"

      I know it's not much but figured I would share.

      no gun sensor update and no antvr 2 giveaway promise. They slap our head TWICE????

    5. Dave Wallingham on May 31

      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?

      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.

    11. Dave Wallingham on April 5

      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 service@antvr.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?

    13. Dave Wallingham on March 31

      I just received another email from ANTVR confirming that they will be shipping the free Cyclops in April.

    14. Michael Burke (deleted) on March 27

      I was promised a Cyclops unit but have not seen it yet.

    15. Dave Wallingham on March 24

      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.

    16. Вячеслав Муха on March 19

      Totally looks like it sells. At least in Chinese home market. Did anybody get any news from ANTVR?)

    17. Вячеслав Муха on March 19

      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).

      @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.

      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 : "

      ANTVR
      20. März 2015

      Hi Marco
      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.

      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. :-)

    33. David S on November 9, 2016

      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…

    34. Dave Wallingham on November 6, 2016

      In regards to delivery they told me that the units were still in production and would send us a link with how to pay when they were ready. At that time they said they were still negotiating the best shipping prices they could find.

      Are there any news about shipping costs? Or are the delivery costs effectively as high as the "update" of 10/12/2016?! :-(

      What are the plans for for delivery (any date known)?

      I guess Antvr team is nice people after all. I thought i waste my money but now they are giving us big present! thank you for doing that Antvr Team!

    38. Dave Wallingham on October 9, 2016

      AntVR Responded and got my current contact details. They said they are just looking for a reasonably priced shipper and then they would let us know how to pay the shipping and send out. Figured I would update in case anyone hasn't heard back yet.

    39. David S on October 5, 2016

      Anyhow, I think that anyone else who may have been disappointed by, or have to bear the burden of ‘AntVR’s false or deceptive advertising in deliveromg on their advertised specifications, should know that one will likely be able to build one’s own device of even higher resolution, now or in the relatively near future, including with available technologies such as: https://hackaday.io/project/364-mipi-dsi-display-shieldhdmi-adapter or the latest sony xperia premium’s 4K LCD (reportedly currently available on eBay for <$60 i.e. http://www.ebay.com/itm/191756863174 [should be able to fit in _two_ well within AntVR’s pricing so far], or via Toshiba’s TC358743 chipset (used in some of these guys {IMO interesting} products: http://www.auvidea.eu/index.php/purchase), though how fashionable it is would be your call!

    40. David S on October 4, 2016

      Hmm... even though I brought up licensing their tech with them back on 6/6/14 (which they never got back to me on, despite apparently having licensed to others), provided the link to the alternate fresnel design to begin with, and more, they apparently haven't appreciated my contributions much.

    41. Dave Wallingham on October 4, 2016

      Yeah for sure KydDynoMyte, I am getting the standard bundle. I will likely get the second controller and the carpets if they sell them separately but would like to try the headset first. They said they are already produced and delivered some in China so hopefully it will not take too long to give it a go.

      KydDynoMyte on October 4, 2016

      For backers getting the free standard backer bundle with 1 controller, if they will let you, you might try to buy a 2nd controller. Most SteamVR games that use tracked controllers require 2 of them.

    43. Dave Wallingham on October 4, 2016

      Their update said to email them if you want the headset. I emailed right after the update on Sept 30 but have not heard anything back yet. Anyone have any luck getting more info on the free headsets from them?

    44. Michael Burke (deleted) on October 3, 2016

      Well done ANTVR, After closer observations I find myself on the list of early backers and will receive compensation to which I am truly grateful.
      Yes you have proven you do have great international customer service.
      My previous letter was not sent in anger I simply felt at a loss given the excitement I felt to be introduced to vitual reality.
      Thanks again ANTVR and I look forward to attempt number 2 with just as much excitement.
      Michael.

    45. Michael Burke (deleted) on October 3, 2016

      I supported the original ANTVR with great expectations.Unfortuneatly the unit failed in many ways and I felt it was a loss of my money.
      I see a new unit out now and I hope this company remembers the people that felt the same result as myself.
      For me the true test of the ANTVR team is going to be how they address this with the hope of retaining the early adoptors of the ANTVR for the future.
      I personally expect some form of compensation or discount on the Cyclop to compensate for a below par product and let's not forget without the previous campaign this product (Cyclop) may not have proceeded.
      I hope someone from the ANTVR team will respond to this awakining call that some people went away from ANTVR with a bitter taste in their mouths and hope some offer can sweeten things up.
      The ball is in your court now ANTVR and I hope you exercise international customer service and not just burn us off like yesterdays fuel.
      I expect to contacted by the ANTVR team and please be reminded I have made over 120 contributions to crowd funded projects.
      Thank you.
      Michael

      Hi @everyone! Great news about the list! It was a nice surprise))) Thank you @ANTVR! But it seems really unfair to @KydDynoMyte. He had been very active on reddit thread and on our forum helping all the users one way or another. Really.
