Virtual Reality Devices
Virtual reality devices
have been around for almost 15 years, but improvements to the user experience and price point of the software have driven up the demand in the last few years. Unstable views and sluggish loading screens used to make users feel sick to their stomach, but the superior technology available today makes for a much more enjoyable experience.
The prices of virtual reality devices have dramatically fallen as more and more companies offer less expensive versions of quality headsets. In fact, Google attempted to make a virtual reality device so inexpensive that users can create their own out of cardboard. While the campaign didn’t have the sort of broad appeal as other units such as the Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR, it is much less expensive today to have virtual reality experiences at home.
Some devices are self-contained, meaning the device itself is all that you need to operate the virtual reality world, while others connect to smartphones and other consoles and require additional pieces, such as a gaming controller, to enter the virtual environment.
