VR Headsets – Virtual Reality Headsets

VR Headsets

At long last after an unbelievable 60+ years , believable virtual reality via VR Headets is actually here.

A good VR experience has been a very long time coming with plenty of passed failed attempts, mainly due to the technology not being good enough or fast enough to give you that real virtual reality experience.

All Virtual Reality gave you previously is extremely poor blocky graphics, and plenty of motion sickness and nausea, not exactly something you wanted to experience.

Todays VR Headsets as seen on VRShopper.co.uk give you an out of this world immersive experience which you need to try out, the most well known Virtual Reality head mounted displays are currently the Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR (which is also an oculus device)

The Oculus rift needs a high end gaming PC to run properly, but the Samsung Gear VR just needs a high end Samsung smartphone such as the Samsung s6 or s7, you really wouldn’t believe that a phone is giving you the experience of virtual reality.

If you want to try before you buy the best thing really is to start off with a FREE Google Cardboard, and insert any android or apple smartphone, or purchase a ready made Google Cardboard from Amazon for a couple of pounds, it won’t give you the best VR experience but it will be surprisingly good.

Other VR headsets are the HTC Vive which allows you also walk around the room to give you even more realism, and the Playstation VR which is connected to your PS4, the advantage of this is everything is just plug and play so you don’t need to be a computer geek to get it going.

Without a doubt VR is going to be the next big thing in gaming, it will give you a whole new dimension in gaming, and bring back to life what you once enjoyed on the now tired old 2d gaming platform. After all Facebook bought the company Oculus for gazillions of dollars, which must say something about it’s future.
