Virtual reality is here, in the sense that all of the big names in VR have released or are very close to producing their VR platforms. VR is a fascinating way to put you somewhere else through the wonders of technology, using a headset and motion tracking allows you to look around a virtual space as if you are actually there. It's also been a promising technology for years.

Here is the first wave of VR which we think are the best based on the rumors we've gathered. Oculus has unveiled the consumer-ready Rift, HTC and Valve have put out the Steam-friendly Vive. Google's getting ready to let its Daydream. While, Samsung continue to improve with The Samsung Gear. There are a lot of aspiring headsets across a lot of different prices and range. Let's check out what they cover.

The HTC's Vive

An all-inclusive package that includes a headset, two motion controllers, and also two base stations for defining a whole-room VR area. It's relatively impressive and is the only VR system that tracks your movements in a 10-foot cube rather of from your seat. Also, includes a set of motion controllers more enhanced than the PlayStation Move. With a price tag of $800 pretty hard to refuse and PC-tethered VR systems just like the Vive which need plenty of power, with HTC suggesting at least an Intel Core i5-4590 CPU and a GeForce GTX 970 GPU.

The Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift has become convertible with VR, even if the brand has lost some of its brilliance against the HTC Vive. The retail version of Oculus Rift is already out, and while it's more pricey than the developer kits were, it's also much more upgraded. From a technical angle, the headset is nearly identical to the HTC Vive. Rift costs $200.

The Samsung Gear VR

The Gear VR presents quite a challenge in terms of resolution, as you can imagine, an Ultra HD image displayed from a 6-inch smartphone will likely pale in comparison, and graphics performance is limited by smartphone hardware. Gear VR features controls built into the headset with a pass-through connector to keep your phone charged and is kind of comfortable to wear.

The Google Daydream View

Daydream has new apps and games which include Netflix VR, HBO Now VR and Also the Lego BrickHeadz Builder VR. Google Daydream View is ready to revolutionize your next Android phone into an enchanting virtual reality headset for a convincing price of only $113.00
