VR head­sets

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

HMDs are the most pop­u­lar form of VR equip­ment. They are gog­gles that con­nect to a com­puter sys­tem, and the com­puter does the the graph­ics pro­cess­ing. As such, you are not as mo­bile, but depend­ing on the setup, you may still have enough mo­bil­ity for the most im­mer­sive VR ex­pe­ri­ence of them all.

The pro­ject that re­vived the dream of VR, the Ocu­lus Rift, is con­sid­ered an HMD. Since the Ocu­lus Rift, how­ever, there have been many other com­pa­nies an­nounc­ing their own ver­sions. Among them are the HTC Vive or oth­er­wise known as SteamVR, and Sony’s PlayS­taion VR, the re­cently re­named Pro­ject Mor­pheus. There’s also Razer’s OSVR, or Open Source Vir­tual Re­al­ity, which will be in­cor­po­rat­ing In­tel RealSense tech. This prob­a­bly means ges­ture con­trols in­stead of hav­ing wired gloves or some­thing along those lines for a less teth­ered VR ex­pe­ri­ence.
