Post Virtual reality goggles.. worth the expense?
Hi does anyone own a 'decent' VR (virtual reality) system yet? I'm keen to find out if something like the HTC Vive is worth the expense..... haven't been able to test any on the high street unfortunately.

I'd like to know the answer to this as well... looks good but I also wonder whether the amount of 'quality' (not the crappy youtube examples) content out there is also going to make me not want to purchase a VR kit.. ?

Apparently the Sony Playstation 4 VR kit is pretty good: http://uk.pcmag.com/consumer-electronic ... ts-of-2017

Although I have to admit I'm also hanging fire until I see a decent amount of affordable and 'decent' content being put out there.

I got a cheapo headset (the ones you put your phone in)... pretty naff to be honest.. as for the proper VR kits like the HTC vive, Occulus, PS4 VR etc I've no idea.. I'd love to be able to try them, anyone know where you can trial them free?

Many software development companies https://skywell.software/ar-vr-development who specialize in AR/VR development use PlayStation VR and HTC Vive, so I'm sure it worth trying.

Computer generated Reality is a portion which is quickly blasting over the globe. For quite a while, Virtual Reality has been in the domain of sci-fi. Anyway with the expanding preparing power and cell phone upset, since dream has transformed into the real world.
