THE BEST VR HEADSETS THAT YOU CAN BUY RIGHT NOW
Virtual reality is the future. It’s a bold claim, but I am going to come right out and make it. Whatever your reservations are about the technology, maybe you don’t want to wear glasses-like-things over your face, or you are just afraid of humanity’s growing dependence on screens, it is happening. People were hesitant to adopt the TV and then the computer and then the smart phone. They told their children they should just play outside like they did growing up. And look what happened. My daughter learnt to use an IPad before she could walk.
But seriously, let’s get down to brass tacks. If you have made it this far you are probably cultivating an interest in VR. You want to experience it for yourself and find a way to include this technological marvel into your life. Well, until we start implanting computers into people’s brains, or wearing futuristic contact lenses, your options are limited to wearing a headset.
Best Mobile VR Headsets
Mobile VR headsets basically just hold your smart phone up to your face and block out the real world, so your only sensory input comes from the screen. They are the cheapest form of VR, and you can even make one yourself.
