Virtual reality headsets take entertainment and gaming up a notch by placing you right where the action is. VR devices used to be big, clunky, and not what you would describe as portable, but that changed with modern VR headsets, which you can use with your smartphone.
Well-known tech manufacturers like HTC, Samsung, and Oculus made some of the best VR headsets to date, and each has certain features and functions that makes the technology convenient and easy to use by anyone.
HTC Vive – The hand controllers and sub-millimeter tracking position work together for an almost free-roaming 3D UX (user experience). This makes the Vive experience known as the best in class VR.
The Vive lets you manipulate room-scale VR simulated worldspace and landscapes, explore enclosed and open simulation environments, become one of the characters and interact with different personas and many VR objects.
The really cool thing about the HTC is this device lets you experience the supremacy of virtual reality with 1080 x 1200 screen per eye, and delivering a pixel density that eliminates screen door effect. The result is an overall resolution of 2160 x 1200 pixels and a 9:5 aspect ratio, which produces a taller image that feels extremely convincing and natural.
Samsung Gear VR – For entry level users, Samsung Gear is the perfect VR headset that strikes a balance between a reasonable price and reliable features. Use it to watch streamed videos, and you do not have to feel strained due to its comfortable and lightweight design. Gear is easy to set up and configure for every compatible Samsung Galaxy device.
Oculus Rift – The Rift is a good cubicle workstation-class VR platform for serious PC gamers. It offers impressive spatial audio and visual VR experience with its 3D audio capable built-in headphones and a comfortable, light, and sleek headset.
The compact headset-tracking camera can be mounted to a pole or onto the PC monitor. The virtual reality experience is further enhanced if you use the Rift with a powerful gaming computer that comes with a mondo graphics board.
Whichever VR headset is right for you, immersing yourself in this wearable technology is a great way to experience the best content around. With new VR experiences being released in the mainstream, there are only more great times ahead!
