Sony’s PlayStation VR headset is set to launch next month, and third-party hardware manufacturers have already started rolling out a series of accessories that will help you keep your console virtual reality setup safe and organized.

Road to VR summarizes the PlayStation VR’s pre-release accessory lineup, noting that rival virtual reality platforms like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive give users far fewer options when it comes to hardware organization and transport.

PlayStation VR early adopters who wish to maintain a tidy playspace will want to invest in one of two organizer stands premiering alongside Sony’s headset next month. The PowerA Charge and Display Stand, currently available for pre-order via Amazon and other retailers, features a stand for the PlayStation VR headset and charge cradles for one DualShock 4 controller and two PlayStation Move accessories.

Manufacturer Collective Minds, meanwhile, offers its own solution for PlayStation VR storage and charging with the PSVR Showcase Rapid AC PS4 VR Charge & Display Stand. Collective Minds’ accessory can charge two DualShock 4 controllers and two PlayStation Move wands, and is available for pre-order at $35, compared to the $50 asking price for PowerA’s competing stand.

Players wanting to take their virtual reality hardware on the road may want to check out one of several travel accessories debuting in the months ahead, including RDS Industries’ PlayStation VR Headset and Accessories Deluxe Carrying Case. Priced at $60 and due to launch on October 31, the case protects PlayStation VR headsets and cables from damage with a hardshell casing, and features a handle for maximum portability.

PowerA has its own travel solution in mind with its Storage Case for PSVR. Available for pre-order at $40, PowerA’s Storage Case is slimmer and sleeker than RDS’ Deluxe Carrying Case, and features similar storage capacity along with a handle for transport.

All announced PlayStation VR accessories are slated for release on October 31. The PlayStation VR headset and a selection of launch titles will debut at retail on October 13.

Ever since the first rumors surfaced that Apple was working on a mixed-reality headset, it has been assumed that immersive video would be a key feature of the device. Yet we’ve never really known exactly how this would work -- until now.

That’s because Apple has just been granted a patent (USPTO number 11570417) that goes into detail on how a user might watch video content while wearing the headset, which will allegedly be dubbed Reality Pro. And that patent presents an intriguing system that could have uses beyond simple video.

Apple’s upcoming mixed-reality headset risks becoming a “high-profile flop” due to its high price and the wariness of potential customers. That’s according to a new report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who lays out numerous hurdles the headset has to clear if it isn’t to end up an embarrassment for Apple.

So far, most leaks and rumors surrounding the headset have been more or less positive, touting the highly advanced technology the product is said to contain. The price, however, has been a point of contention, and it is that point that could drag down Apple’s efforts, the report claims.

Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman has revealed how Apple’s upcoming mixed-reality headset will work in precise detail. It’s the clearest look yet at Apple’s top-secret project -- potentially dubbed Reality Pro -- as until now we’ve had to rely on disparate rumors from various unconnected sources.

The headset will feature hand- and eye-tracking capabilities, which Gurman believes will be a “major selling point” for the device. Each user’s hand movements will be tracked by external cameras, while internal sensors will follow eye movement. As a result, users will be able to select on-screen items like apps and buttons just by looking at them.
