Top 10 Best VR Headsets in 2017
The Oculus Rift is not the only VR kit out there. There are some less expensive options that need less expensive technology and yet, still it becomes some of the Best VR headsets in 2017. We are talking about the VR kits that require a smart phone. Unlike the Oculus they do not require an ultra expensive computer (see The Best Gaming Desktops of 2017) to run games and applications. What they do use is the phone as a display. These rudimentary VR kits are, in simple words, boxes that keep the phone oriented horizontally close to the user's eyes. In order to benefit from a VR experience, special applications and games need to be installed. The smart phone does not convert automatically into a VR headset. What so many like about it, is the fact they do not need to spend thousands of dollars on a computer and an Oculus rift. Also there are no wires involved, giving the user much more freedom. The concept was introduced by Google with their basic cardboard kit that everyone could download, print and cut. Since then third-party manufacturers design their own kids made of more durable materials such as polycarbonate, PU leather and many others. They are much more comfortable and easy to use. There is something that users have noticed and that is the responsive rate of the kit to the user's movement. This is directly affected by the quality of the motion sensors used in the phone. Here are some of the top 10 best VR headsets.
