The Oculus Rift requires a wired connection to a high-spec (and often very expensive) gaming PC, running Windows 7 or higher, but the payoff is the ability to create processing-heavy interactive experiences and games. When it first launched, the Rift couldn’t do room-scale VR (so users had to sit, or stand still), but the recent addition of an additional low-latency constellation tracking system means users can now walk around – just be aware, not all users will have this capability. The same applies to the newly launched Touch controllers, which can be purchased to add greater interactivity.
The Rift’s integrated VR audio system is excellent, and is widely considered better than its competitor, the HTC Vive. Price: £550.
