The top VR Headset - Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR comparison, and more

What can VR do for you?

Before we go into what makes the best VR headset, we need to see what VR can do. This is especially important, because knowing what it is you want from your VR device would be a large barometer of which device you choose to buy (or stare at until the price drops). Of course, we did cover this in full detail in our Virtual Reality - Where is it heading, and what does that mean to us? article but let's cover the basics quickly once more.

So what are some of the widespread implications of VR? You can have:

  • VR games (du duhh!)
  • VR movies and videos
  • VR porn and adult entertainment
  • VR desktops and system tools
  • VR education (a bonus for those of you with children)
  • VR designing and mapping of building plans, art or 3d models
  • Playing current games in a VR setting

And what are some of the things that could happen in the near future?

  • Spectating e-sports and traditional sports
  • VR workouts
  • VR chat
  • VR sex
  • 4D VR - with wind and water simulaters

With that out of the way, let's take a look at our first VR headset.
