It is well known, the main weakness of the Oculus Rift Developers Kit 2 comes from its lenses. VRBites also had a lot of problems with the lenses. Not only did they scatch, the lenses increase pixel size. Microsoft, which seems more and more involved in VR, offers an alternative to those with ‘lens troubles’.
The company has upload a file to help build better lenses for the Oculus Rift DK2. According to Microsoft these lenses have a smaller FOV, but that would correct the distortions and chromatic aberrations.
The sharpness seems really improved, but the construction of the famous lens will cost a couple of bucks. The lens itself will be around $ 90 Dollar per eye. The holder will be around 75 dollar per eye. That’s probably half the price of the announced consumer version of the Rift.
