VIRTUAL REALITY (VR) TECHNOLOGY THAT WAS REANIMATED 4 YEARS AGO THANKS TO A VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET PROJECT NAMED OCULUS IS NOW IN OUR LIVES WITH MODELS SUITABLE FOR EVERY BUDGET AND DIFFERENT WORK STYLES.
There is a common ground for these headsets which some require a computer or gaming console while others require a smart phone; they create a perception to your brain that you are surrounded by a display by sending different images to each eye just like 3D glasses. The images we see on the screens change accordingly to our movements. For example, if you are at a beach in the virtual environment the sun stays behind you; so when you turn around you see the sun. So, you are in a 360 degree display. Now think of it as it includes your movements that are viewed across by a camera. Now think that there are small controllers in your hands for various movements. Can you imagine all you could do?
GOOGLE DAYDREAM VIEW
Google is one of the companies that lit the VR fire with their glasses named Cardboard that was produced out of cardboard, which made it very cheap. The company has recently introduced their second set of glasses named Daydream View. The Google VR solution, which now has a case that seems sturdier, will work on the Pixel phones of the company and support higher resolution. Playing games will also become easier thanks to its motion sensing controller.
Oculus, which allowed the idea of virtual reality to re-enter our lives after decades, began as a Kickstarter project and was later bought by Facebook. The device, which has an internal screen, has Full HD resolution. Sensors to perceive the headset’s location, an Xbox controller, and a game come out of the box. To use the Rift you will need a strong PC with an NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD R9 920 or a better graphics card.
The HTC Vive with high resolution (2.160×1.200 pixel) has not lost its effect since the day it first came out. The Vive, which has a total of 70 sensors along with 37 on the headsets, and the others on the controllers and the base stations, allows you to move comfortably in a large area and also requires a powerful PC that can connect it to the content. Besides a USB 2.0 socket and 4 GB of RAM the graphics card specs requirement is the same as the Oculus Rift.
The headset introduced by Sony has its own Full HD screen. The PS VR, which offers 960×1.080 pixel resolution to each eye, was designed to especially work with the PS4. Every game isn’t compatible with the device; however, the good news that there will be 50 VR games was given during the introduction. This number will probably rapidly increase. To use the device you will need a PS4 along with a PlayStation Camera. This apparatus, which is sold separately, follows your movements. Let’s also remind that some games can be played with the move controller.
