Best Virtual Reality Glasses for Smartphones

Author:Jake | TIME:July 06,2017


Samsung Electronics has teamed up with Austrian energy drink company Red Bull develop the number of 360-degree content for the Gear VR ecosystem and compatible head-mounted displays. This has drawn a lot of attention. VR technologies are very popular these days and has been applied in PC-based VR systems and gaming consoles like Sony’s PlayStation VR. And Samsung’s Gear VR has brought it in smartphones.

 

Virtual Reality is a gorgeous way to travel using nothing more than the power of technology. With a headset and motion tracking, VR lets you look around a virtual space as if you were actually there. It's also been a promising technology for many years though some others don’t agree with that.

 

The virtual reality technologies generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user's physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment. If you use the virtual reality headset, you can "look around" the artificial world and with high quality VR move about in it and interact with virtual features or items. VR headsets are head-mounted goggles with a screen in front of the eyes.

 

And modern VR headsets fit under one of two types: mobile or tethered. Mobile headsets are shells with lenses where you can put your smartphone. The lenses separate the screen into two images for your eyes, turning your smartphone into a VR device. Samsung Gear VR and the Google Daydream View are the two most popular mobile headsets. Below I will show you more mobile headsets.

 

 

Samsung Gear VR

Samsung's Gear VR is one of the most accessible VR systems, with a catch. To use the newest Gear VR, you need a compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone, which means even you have a Samsung device, you may not be able to use this Samsung VR headset. Currently the Gear VR is compatible with eight devices ranging from the Galaxy S6 to the S8. Good news is that Samsung usually bundles the Gear VR with its flagship phones. So if plan to buy a Galaxy S8, you might have the chance to get a headset for free.

 

This Samsung goggles headset comes with a new Bluetooth controller equipped with both a touch pad and motion sensing, in addition to the touch pad built onto the headset itself. Besides, the Gear's software ecosystem has been collaborated with Oculus and features a solid handful of apps and games, and multiple ways to consume 360-degree video.

Google Daydream

Google's Daydream is similar to Google Cardboard in concept. The set of lens equipped in Google Daydream separates the screen into two images and presents you wonderful vision. You will have a remote to control the action while experiencing the virtual reality effect. There are also apps that can work with this device, but the software library is rather light. Besides, it is not compatible with Google Cardboard apps.

Sony PlayStation VR

Sony's PlayStation VR offers the most polished and easy-to-use tethered VR experience while requiring an affordable price. It is wonderful when you play games with it. Maybe the disadvantage is that you will need a PlayStation Camera for the headset to work at all, and a PlayStation Move controller bundle for motion controls.

HTC Vive/SteamVR

Packed with a headset, two motion controllers, and two base stations for defining a "whole-room" VR area. It's technically impressive, HTC's Vive is the only VR system that tracks your movements in a 10-foot cube instead of from your seat. HTC recently unveiled a standalone Vive headset that does not require a connected PC. Maybe this is a good choice for you.
