It is no secret that everyone is embracing the promising world of virtual reality. Even though virtual reality is in its early days, there is plenty of interest shown by tech pioneers and hardcore gamers alike. As a new competitor in the electronics market, VR devices are sure to give many other devices a run for the money. The first device, Occulus Rift, owned by Facebook, has sort of revolutionized gaming and has been followed by HTC Vive and Sony’s Morpheus. The Morpheus was designed as the official VR headset for the Playstation 4.
Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus is touted to be the most momentous product launch of the decade. Samsung Gear VR headsets are different from Google Cardboard and have been bundled with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones. The Gear VR comes with additional sensors that make head tracking smoother and decreases motion based disorientation. It also features a touchpad with a number of control options. This VR is totally glasses-friendly while the possibilities with it are limitless. Whether you want to watch a movie, hop on a virtual vacation or play a game, the Gear VR is an ideal companion.
And then you have the Daqri smart helmet, an industrial device that doubles as a hard hat and safety goggles. The device is ideal for those working in technical fields and with heavy machinery. It is designed to project information in front of the eyes of the wearer.
Smartwatches too have made the grade with both Apple and Microsoft coming out with Apple Watch, and Band fitness tracker respectively. These two products are among the hottest in wearable devices although the Apple Watch has surged ahead of the competition. This includes pricing, design, and functionality.
There are many more amazing gadgets to look forward to this year. If you are a hardcore gamer, VR is the way to go. The future for gaming is bright and if this is what 2016 has brought us so far, we can only imagine what is coming next.
