The Samsung Gear VR headset gets you in the moment with its super AMOLED display and precise head-tracking features. The low latency even realizes reality in the virtual world.
The Gear VR works fantastically well with Galaxy smartphones, especially the Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+, S6, others. It includes a comfortable headset, a wider interface, 19% lighter compared to previous incarnation and a bigger touchpad for better control.
You can select from a vast selection of content and get immersed with the views and even play games from its ever-expanding vault.
With the HTC Vive, you can view starships rocketing across the galaxy, or experience shrinking to a subatomic size. This VR headset is powered by SteamVR that brings the virtual experience, the sights and sounds, making them completely lifelike and make you experience new realities with limitless possibilities.

Sony Project Morpheus
Project Morpheus is an upcoming VR platform, expected to arrive in 2016 that is designed to deliver a unique gaming experience with Sony’s PlayStation. It combines a landscape-scanning high-definition 1080p display, a unique optical unit having a 100 degree field of view that renders the 3D space easily in front of our eyes. The future of gaming through VR headset will now be available for PlayStation 4. This project also offers a deeply immersive audio experience where sound will come from any direction within a 360-degree model.
The dual-banded form can fit users comfortably in spite of varied head sizes. Its visor also includes a high-sensitivity accelerometer and gyroscope that can detect the user’s head movement with almost no latency.
Microsoft Hololens is the first fully untethered, holographic computer that delivers HD holograms with multiple ways to connect, create and collaborate. The device actually brings gaming untethered and in mixed reality, having the ability to make any surface to work as a portal. With gestures and voice control, one can manipulate its performance and working. It is supported by the Windows 10 platform. The reactions that it prompts are more natural compared to any other VR headset available.
It intelligently maps your room, blending holograms with the environment. You can pin holograms in actual locations correctly and easily and even interact with the holograms and everyday objects simultaneously.
