Oculus Rift , Google Daydream, Occipital Bridge, HTC Vive: Quick Description & Price
The rise and popularity of VR gear have spawned many noteworthy headsets that companies have released. Despite some insane price tags, the market for the VR is nothing short of amazing and it has yet to reach its peak. Here is a quick list of some of the most popular VR/AR gear available in the market.
The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR. It was released on March 28, 2016. One of the newest and well-received features is the Oculus Touch controllers that are currently labeled as the best hand-tracking controllers for VR as to date. Following the success of the controllers, there are reports suggesting that there will be an updated version of the Touch Controllers next year. The retail price of the Oculus Rift VR is $599.
The Google Daydream is a virtual reality headset that was released last month with a retail price of only $79. Currently, the Daydream is only compatible with the Google Pixel smartphones and Moto Z. There has also been a rumor that Smartphones running on Android Nougat are compatible with the Daydream, but so far there has been no proof yet. What we do know is that Google plans to expand the compatibility of the Daydream to other smartphone brands and create more Google smartphones that will be compatible with the device.
This is the newest and high-end headset in the scene right now. Though we haven't yet fully seen what this headset is capable of, only a glimpse of its awesomeness, what we do know based on the video is that it features mixed reality. Meaning, it combines reality, virtual reality, and some kind of an augmented reality that is seen in Lenovo Phab 2's Tango experience feature.
This device was made for the iPhone 6, 6s and 7, but is also compatible with iPads (the model is not specified). About whether it will be compatible with the upcoming iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and 8, there is a big chance that it will be. The retail price of this device is $399.
The HTC Vive is a virtual reality headset developed by HTC and Valve Corporation. It was released on April 5, 2016. One of the main features of this device is that it was designed to utilize "room scale" technology to turn a room into a 3D space via sensors. The price of this device is $799.
