Everyone who wants to experience virtual reality needs a hardware set. The main device is the head-mounted display. Not allowing the light and images from the real world to interfere with those from the virtual world, such headsets allow users to get immersed in the virtual environment. Fortunately, there are many headsets in the market, allowing users to buy a set which style, price, and functions they like most of all.
According to the statistics, the Samsung Gear VR was the best selling device in 2016. More than 4 million units were sold that year. As for other VR devices, users can also choose HTC Vive, Google Daydream, the Oculus Rift, and the PlayStation VR.
The Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR are considered to be the best on the market. However, they are also the most expensive. These VR headsets allow users to enjoy unparalleled immersion accompanied by powerful refresh rates, high resolutions, and room-scale tracking. As for the HTC Vive, it even goes with motion controllers that make immersion more real.
So if you don’t want to spend a big sum of money on a pricey VR set, think about the fact that everything has started with a simple Google Cardboard project. It’s a super cheap device that still provides you with a lot of fun. For an affordable price, you get the possibility to try out VR immersion. Still, you have to deal with the low quality of the image and limited functionality. Of course, you shouldn’t forget that a low price doesn’t mean awesome quality. In order to enjoy the VR experience, you’ll need more immersive headsets.
