Visus VR Headset To Take on Samsung Gear VR
The Current Generation of VR
The potential of virtual reality has been increasing steadily for more than 20 years. It’s not new technology by any means, but for a long time, it just wasn’t very good. And, it was expensive. For virtual reality to be appealing on a wide scale, we’ve learned, it’s got to be immersive, responsive, and affordable. The Visus VR Headset is all of these things and more. It’s immersive, putting you in a game’s ultra sharp environment, rather than confining you to the dimensions of a screen. It’s responsive, utilising the latest advanced head tracking system so that your view in virtual reality matches your real movements. And it’s affordable, with a price tag of $149 USD.
Visus Versus Galaxy
Many gamers are interested in how the Visus VR headset compares to Samsung’s Galaxy VR. The latter is another noteworthy new VR headset, but it does have a few limitations. For starters, the image quality on the Galaxy VR is adequate at best, which limits how immersive the experience feels. More significantly, it works only with the Galaxy Note, which excludes a lot of users. And, it costs more than twice as much as the Visus VR.
The Visus VR, on the other hand, offers an ultra sharp and crisp image in a huge field of view — over 110 degrees. A dedicated fan on the lenses ensures that they remain fog free. Your smart phone can be used as a wireless screen, and the Visus VR’s onboard battery will help to keep it charged for up to four hours. Finally, the price can’t be beaten: it retails for $149 USD, with a special pre-order price of just $99.
The Visus VR looks like the first really viable and affordable VR headset. It will certainly be interesting to watch how it fares against the Galaxy VR.
