VR view­ers

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

These in­cludes Sam­sung’s Gear VR, Google Card­board and its de­riv­a­tives (like LG’s VR for G3), and other do-it-your­self VR kits. Some­times also known as mo­bile VR, they make use of your phone as both the dis­play and the heart of your 3D ex­pe­ri­ence. Gen­er­ally, there’s the gog­gles and an empty cham­ber in front of the lenses, where your phone sits. With the ap­pro­pri­ate apps or YouTube videos, you can place your phone in the empty cham­ber where the phone it­self will han­dle all the com­pu­ta­tional tasks re­quired, as well as hav­ing its screen play the role of dis­play for your VR ex­pe­ri­ence.

While Sam­sung’s of­fer­ing is only com­pat­i­ble with its own Gal­axy S6 and S6 edge, GoogleGoogle’ss Card­board sup­ports most An­droid smart­phones, save the LG G3 due to de­sign in­com­pat­i­bil­i­ties. For­tu­nately, LG has come up with a de­vice called the VR for G3, which lets you view VR on the G3.
