AuraVisor – Head Mounted Computer for Virtual Reality

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2015-10-29

The AuraVisor is the first production ready Head Mounted Computer specifically designed for virtual reality. Because it is a head mounted computer it is also wire free and does not need to be connected to a computer or require a smartphone for operation. It also means that the device has been specifically targeted to focus all of its power on virtual reality. You must have come across tons of VR devices that pair to your smartphone or computer. AuraVisor is unique and doesn’t require any such pairing. Its on-board Android based computer allows you to break free from cables and other devices and experience virtual reality, and all it offers, without breaking the budget. From casual & pro gamers, intrepid explorers and experience junkies, AuraVisor will work as a cool VR headset for everyone. The stereoscopic vision will allow you to view any 2D movies or TV programmes in real 3D. The AuraVisor will ship with its own Bluetooth games controller and the Wi-Fi as well as the simple smart scrolling graphical user interface will let you turn on the headset, download your favorite content and immerse yourself in a magical 360-degree of entertainment. Wireless is the new cool indeed!

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

First, the cost of the Auravisor is double what you have listed. Second, I’m one of the original backers of Auravisor, and the headset I received from Damson Audio is complete garbage. The keyboard is half-hidden offscreen, the Play Store is impossible to navigate, and it’s not compatible with any Cardboard or Android VR content. Auravisor is nonworking garbage with many corners cut since the prototype that leave it a mess. Sharp plastic will cut your nose as this HMD is smashed against your face by cheap rubber straps. Buy ViewMaster, Cardboard, Gear, or literally any other VR headset over… Read more »

Any idea where the support is? How does one contact the support desk that I see references to? Damson Audio is gone, and I'm unable to log into the Play Store.

James, my device is working great for nearly every app I try on the Google Play store. One that I would really like to enjoy is New York Times VR; they have some of the best curated content on many important topics. Alas, I have been unable to get it to work; the Google Play app (for NYT VR) downloads and appears to be working....until the part after you select the "play" virtual button. Thanks for your help!!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi MJ yes there was a new update on Friday. To all, please note the following. Do not take silence from me on here as being rude. I am not. I said a while ago I was stopping communicating here as I can't be on here all the time and then updating other channels. If you have issues please contact our support desk and not leave a comment on here as it could be quite some time before I see it.

It did work for me before the last "update", with the exception of some graphics being jumpy... So, is there a new update out now that fixes the no access to the menu issue?
James Talbot
Review from Kickstarter
The product works. There was a glitch on a recent update which was resolved in the latest update.
Raihaan Patel
Review from Kickstarter
Wow so glad I didn't go all in. I had my doubts from the start and questioned the quality of the components that were going to be used. Looks like they went for the cheapest hardware solutions and the cheapest workmanship and assembly. Doubt much testing was even done, if at all and as for quality control, again, seems to be none. Dodged a bullet and I'm quite glad I did! Phew!

Review from Kickstarter
Sooooo glad I sold mine on ebay while everyone was fighting to get their hands on one of these! Hate to agree with the people below but this was a lot of hype for an ultimately very late and second rate product

Review from Kickstarter
Have to agree this is total junk. Am sorry I backed it. Have wasted hours trying to get it to update or do anything useful.
M.J. Farley
Review from Kickstarter
So... yup... started acting all glitchy, so did the update... now it is more or less junk... no access to the menu (head mouse, vr mode, etc) anymore and have to power down to exit apps... waste of time now. Is there a way to roll back the update? Would rather have jumpy graphics than this crap update...

Has anyone had any success with the AV? What all will it do???
I haven't even taken this out of the box yet (just got it in December). I wrote to James ages ago to no avail.
Has anyone heard from James???

More issues, the back button and the menu button also appear to have stopped working

Review from Kickstarter
Left this on the forum but no one contacted me from Damson so putting it here as well incase this is viewed more often. Finally managed to get back to the UK and collect my VR headset I arrived home on the 15th March and collected my headset from where it was left for me.
I charged it up and switched it on, booted up properly, no problems.
system was quite clunky and I found that I could not view menus (very blurry). (among the other issues mentioned by members) Not to worry I thought to myself there is a software update I can put on when I get back to the UAE.
I have today 27th March downloaded and installed the software update. I was amazed that everything was so much more focused, I could see the menus quite clearly movement seemed to be more fluid, I could see the keyboard better and so forth. 2 minutes after installing the update the unit froze.
I tried leaving it for some time as I thought it may still be installing the latest update.
I tried pressing the power button, nothing happened.
I held down the power button for about 10 seconds, unit turned off.
rebooted unit went back to the start screen and froze.
Tried a soft reset, unit booted up and at the start screen froze again.
Tried a hard reset, unit went through the process of removing all s ettings and software booted up and froze again. I have tried these solutions a number of times to no avail. (Except cannot do another hard reset as I cannot get to the correct menu before unit freezes. Also since hard reset I cannot get to any settings including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
I would really like this to work, so would like anyone who has had any similar problems to reply to my post with any suggestions they have. Or for Damson support to let me know how they can help me as I am not in the UK and will not be back until July.

Bitterly disappointed with this after all of the hype!!!
I've tried many updates & spent many annoying hours trying to make this work as described to no avail.
So it will go in the Bin sadly

my review. submitted to the website damsonaudio.
short review: HW Quality: 2/5 firmware: 0, GUI: 0, Controller: 1 (it worked once), Customer support: -1000 (that's a negative number, you don't desrve a zero)
I have tried to like this thing. the whole setup is broken. text and all icons are far too close. the nibiru login doesn't work. bluetooth fails to find anything randomly. it will randomly decide i'm trying to look at the ceiling and then nauseatingly creep back to the horizontal. i'm running version 2.blah blah 14 which was supposed to fix the horrible layout. the 15 update purports to fix virtual keyboard issues. wouldn't know - can't download it. it's more than a few days after december when it was released but it doesn't work for wifi download and there's not link. Support for this "kickstarter" "invention" (re-badged garbage) is horrendous. I'd give it zero starts if i could. such a disappointment. As a side note anyone who gives this thing a 5 star review can't have spent any time with it.

Is the december update available as MicroSD-Update? A few days are over.

Review from Kickstarter
Can you confirm if any of the additional accessories have been sent out yet?
I am yet to receive an additional faceplate that I added to my pledge.
It was said that any add-ons would be sent out after the headsets.
Mark Bennett
Review from Kickstarter
I've not used since end of december and its not properly turning on. I've tried to do turn on about seven times now. I have a demo with it tomorrow and its supposed to lend it to a journalist for review. If its DOA then its not going to do well. Just tried again - now I don't even get the logo and OS load screen. Just lit up screen but black. Was fine before end of Dec. Software update issues bricking it?

@Randy Joslin
you must just be extremely patient : just put your AV on a table in a charging state. Just wait for several hours, I'm pretty you can have other matters to handle by this time. Sometimes, you may check if a popup appears to invite you to install the update and reboot your AV. That's all.
James Talbot
Review from Kickstarter
Do make sure the headset is on though. It won't download if it's sleeping or powered off as sleep is like a full hibernation with the intention of saving battery drain.
James Talbot
Review from Kickstarter
If you're referring to the one at the bottom of the screen it's letting you know that the download is in progress. It's worth having a re-read of the update. I will say I'm probably not the best at writing in plain English, so I do apologise for that - and is why I was told not to write the descriptions of our products anymore :-(
Randy Joslin
Review from Kickstarter
I have super fast broadband and I let it sit all day without applying the update. I will try again tonight. What does the message mean that displays?
James Talbot
Review from Kickstarter
@Randy your file will be downloading in the background. As the update mentioned it is a big update if some 450mb. The best way to ensure it is downloading is to ensure it's charging, and when you take it off turn the screen back on. My download took 15 minutes on super fast broadband so it can take a while. Then just go back to the update section and it should ask you if you want to install. Follow the screen prompts and it will install. As for the sharing of info comment. Totally agree. That's why we have the forum on the website. I think some were looking at a Reddit as well. Unfortunately people are creatures of habit and do return here. I've said I'll not be active on here as it is very time consuming for me personally to manage this, hence the periods of silence. But I am checking in occasionally. Let me know if you need anything else.
Randy Joslin
Review from Kickstarter
And you really should have a better way for us to ask and share information other than Kickstarter.

Review from Kickstarter
I go to the upgrade online option on the headset. I get the grey bar image at the bottom of the screen "Has set up a file in the download list". I go to the file folders and download folder but the files in there give me the option to delete them and nothing else. Once I download online where is the file to upgrade?
James Talbot
Review from Kickstarter
@Marek @Randy what is the issue exactly and I'll try and help. Are you looking for the update on the AuraVisor or the website? @Robert and Sandro, yeah we know. I look forward to either of you improving the product if you possibly can. @Wjn thank you. I know it took some time to resolve this as this was due to having to force the keyboard to act differently within third part apps. Robert and Sandro probably could have solved this quicker than we did. I really appreciate your patience on this. I also now totally appreciate and understand this isn't a product that is as simple as using a tablet or smartphone because you lose the touch element. We are continuing to work on developing the software and hope to continue to improve this in the future. If anyone feels they could offer something by way of their own user hacks we'd welcome this and I would personally love to hear them.

Review from Kickstarter
@Randy Joslin I am experiencing the same problem. Tried to locate the download list but the only file that I could find is "Nibiru_VR" and offers only a "delete" option.
Any backers in Singapore who offer an help and/or suggestions?
Randy Joslin
Review from Kickstarter
Latest update says " Has set up a file in the download list". Where do I take it from here? Is there a download list?
WNJ85
Review from Kickstarter
Latest software update has fixed keyboard issues for me, much easier! Effectively all Android apps are windowed (smaller than screen extents) so fully visible. Enabling VR mode when required makes VR content use the full screen space.

Review from Kickstarter
Who has been using the AuraJunk? After the BIG disappointments of thr Aurajunk and the specs it never met. I could not be bothered to ever use it again. Its not even suitable to give a way as a present. As everyone who tried it said to me its worse than junk. And on top Mr Talbot stole all of our money by not keeping the pledges. Its not my problem he could not stick to the budget. I pledged for something and got the opposite. But I wish everyone the best with this junk. I might salvage the parts I can for another project.

Reinhard Mitschang
Review from Kickstarter
@Robert Mistrik: oh and by the way: the £175 isn't higher because of the wallcharger and the SD card, but because the other tiers are limited early bird offers. If you pledged £25 more on purpose, for items that you can order anytime on amazon for less than £10 than I'd say that is your mistake.
Reinhard Mitschang
Review from Kickstarter
@Robert Mistrik: though I'd say it wasn't well communicated, the wallcharger and the SD card were meant as "freebies" that you didn't pay for with your pledge and as costs did go higher than James anticipated, he decided to cancel the freebies. You still got your AuraVisor for £150 less than it is being sold now, so calling this a robbery is a little bit ignorant.
Robert Mistrik
Review from Kickstarter
I have been robbed of money. I payed more for a wall charger and as card and they didn't come. But of course they took my money. Horrible! Talbot you should be ashamed!
