It packs in 70 sensors plus offers 360 degree head-tracking as well as a 90Hz refresh rate; the stat that’s key to keeping down latency. Elsewhere, there’s an accompanying “context aware controller”, so you can shoot, move and interact with elements in the virtual world.The HTC Vive Pre plugs into PCs and work with Valve’s mammoth gaming ecosystem.
Samsung a top brand coming up with Virtual Reality has given best all round and user friendly Virtual Headset on the techno market. The Gear VR is now available in the market is an Oculus Rift-powered device that uses a Samsung Galaxy smartphone as its processor and display. The Galaxy handset simply slots in front of the lenses, into a Micro USB dock, and uses its Super AMOLED display as your screen.
It’s already added a host of games plus a whole marketplace of VR video content called Milk VR.

The device, Microsoft HoloLens is half virtual and half augmented reality. The device merges real-world elements with virtual ‘holographic’ images, meaning you can look at your Mine craft world on your kitchen table, or walk around the surface of Mars in your living room.
Using Kinect-style tech to recognise gestures and voice commands, the headset has a 120-degree field of vision on both axes, and is capable of ‘high definition’ visuals. What’s more, there’s no connection to a PC – a full Windows 10 system is built into the headset and runs off a battery.
FOVE VR differs from the likes of Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR because it offers interactive eye-tracking. Inside the headset is an infrared sensor that monitors the wearer’s eyes; offering both a new control method and an edge on its competitors when it comes to realism.
With FOVE, simulated depth-of-field is possible, due to the system knowing exactly what you’re looking at, and as a result, the virtual should appear more real.
FOVE makes use of the Wear VR software platform and is compatible with Unity, Unreal, and Cryengine game engines.

; it will play ball with any iOS or Android handset between 4.7 and 5.2 inches.
It packs a media player for the likes of pictures and YouTube videos and an AR app for augmented experiences, while the open source Unity3D SDK (iOS and Android) means there’s plenty of scope for development.
What’s more, with lens maker doing the optics, this definitely has promise.

The majority of these types of headsets are large and heavy, but Avegant’s Glyph is both sleeker and smaller than the pack. Its svelte size is due to its display technology: rather than using conventional Smartphone-like screens to present imagery, it uses an array of micro mirrors to reflect an image directly into your retina.
The Glyph can be worn like a pair of headphones until you pull the screen down over your eyes, where you can enjoy 1280 x 720 for each eyeball. And while it’s limited to a 45 degree field of view, the micro mirror array is said to reduce motion sickness and eye fatigue.
Razer’s OSVR isn’t a rival to Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and Samsung Gear VR. Instead, it’s intended to make life easier for developers to make applications for VR hardware, without technical (software and hardware) limitations getting in their way.
Open source is the big buzzword, breaking down the limitations that hinder development even on Oculus Rift. We have already seen plenty of third parties getting involved to help develop new features, including gesture tracking with a Leap Motion faceplate.
Google announced its Google Cardboardvirtual reality headset at I/O 2014 and unveiled version 2 at the 2015 conference. Popping a smartphone into a cardboard container and then strapping it to your head may sound like a joke, but it actually works and it could become a low-cost way to experience virtual reality.
After all, your smartphone contains all the necessary gyroscopic sensors and positioning systems to accurately track your head movements. Related is Durovis’ Dive, which is essentially the same thing made of higher quality and more sweat-resistant materials.
It is the Cheapest VR headset to experience the virtual gaming or movies experience as compared to other expensive products.
Freefly VR headset looks a bit unfashionable than most other VR. It is compatible with the 200+ Google Cardboard apps, plus it rocks 42mm lenses and a 120-degree field of view while faux leather helps to keep things comfortable. It fits any smartphone with a screen between 4.7in and 6.1in.
It also features head-tracking via your phone’s accelerometer; one point of difference over the cheapest options is that Freefly comes with an odd little controller, named Glide, that you hold in one hand. It saves you the cost of buying a Bluetooth peripheral, though we’ve got to say we prefer a two-handed controller for gaming. It is also cheaper way to experience the virtual world.
