The USB2Air launched on Kickstarter this week will be the first wireless USB transmitter built for 1080p video. Practical applications include wireless webcams, virtual reality headsets and USB hubs.

Philadelphia, PA – Feb 27, 2017 – USB devices have taken over the world of tech but the world has yet to discover a wireless solution for connecting these devices to the computers that use them. HuddleCamHD has recently launched a solution on Kickstarter called the USB2Air which will cost only $254 for early bird project backers. The USB2Air will provide a wireless USB 2.0 link up to 30 Mbps for multiple USB devices. The initial videos show multiple 1080p USB webcams in use with the USB2Air which can operate at distances up to 25′.

How is the USB2Air different from other products?

Our is finally a reliable Wireless USB 2.0 extension system that can be used for webcams and other devices up to 30 Mbps.

Another important use case for the USB2Air is the ability to work with virtual reality headsets. Virtual reality is an up and coming new technology that allows users to interact with a virtual world by wearing a pair of goggles. Facebook has released information about a new virtual reality world they are working on where users can interact with friends and even enjoy games and movies inside the a virtual world.

Currently the latest virtual reality headsets require a hardwired USB connection to a PC for video and data. The USB2Air has been tested with the following virtual reality headsets:

  1. Oculus Rift
  2. Oculus Rift Tracker
  3. Razer Hydra
  4. Razer OSVR HDK1

By using the USB2Air with these products users can now go wireless with their virtual reality headsets. We have more virtual reality headsets to test but the initial testing has been great. Imagine the ability to spin in a chair without having cabling wrap up and twist around the chair. The USB2Air will make wireless transmission from virutal reality headsets a reality!
