If yesterday's surprise announcement of Facebook purchasing OculusVR left you feeling uneasy, it might help to know that there are more players working on virtual reality hardware than just Sony and its recently unveiled Project Morpheus. The Sulon Cortex, Sensics, and the Seebright HMD were three others on show at the recent 2014 Game Developers Conference event, and the GameFace, and Avegant Glyph are among other VR headsets in development.

Now it's also looking very likely that popular gaming hardware manufacturer Razor might be getting into the game too. Responding to Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Perrson's Twitter proclamation that he had cancelled plans of bringing the popular sandbox game to the Oculus Rift device, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan had the following to say "@notch perhaps we can help out. Will be in touch.".

While far from an official confirmation of Razer's VR plans, the concept is well within Razer's capabilities, with the company's experience in boutique gaming peripherals. Razer's Hydra motion controllers, licensed from tech company Sixense are already widely used by VR tinkerers.

Even if Facebook locked the Rift into a head-mounted Second Life, an open future where VR display are as commoditised as TVs and computer monitors is looking reasonably safe.
