Razer has announced that the Open Source Virtual Reality project has gained a number of partners and new features, moving it "closer to becoming a universal standard for integrating virtual reality content." The four new supported technologies are OpenVR from Valve, MonoGame, VorpX, and Unigine. OpenVR is probably the most well known of the four, with the other three offering software support. MonoGame is an "open source port of the XNA 4.0 framework," VorpX allows DirectX 9-11 games to use VR hardware, and Unigine is a "proprietary cross-platform game engine used for virtual reality systems." CEO of Sensics Yuval Boger described the new support stating, "With a single OSVR plugin, developers gain access to free and optimized and industry proven engines like Unity, Unreal, SteamVR, Unigine and MonoGame. OSVR makes it easy for developers to create high quality content which is then supported by a wide range of devices through a standardized interface." OSVR has also added 15 partners including Digital Happiness, Titans of Space, and Incandescent Imaging, bringing the total partner count to 118.
