Sony, Facebook or Samsung only represent a few companies among those which decided to launch their own prototype of virtual reality glasses on the market. This post is written to tell you which are the most recent launching of virtual reality glasses and compare the advantages and disadvantages of each one. We will review the Project Morpheus, Oculus Rift, HTC Re Vive o Gear VR, recently launched by Samsung.
These glasses have been shown in the 2015 Game Developers Conference of San Francisco as virtual reality systems pretending to lead the gamer into a new immersion level. In the new version that will be launched in 2016, the screen will be 5.7 inches and 1920×1080 resolution. Moves are much more precise than in the latest version thanks to three LEDs allowing a 360 degrees view, on top of this, it’s design is now even more appreciable thanks to the strip that makes it easier to color and pressure less the face. One of its main disadvantages, is that the glasses are heavy and long to respond (although it is immediate with Oculus Rift).
Last year, Facebook has bought Oculus Rift in the aim to boost the development of the virtual reality technology through all internet contents and in the hope to offer the Oculus to mass market. The reason why this dispositive exists is to provide a full immersion to the user. The field of view that Oculus Rift offers is aimed to complete the maximum visibility of the user, for him to feel like he is in real world. The big advantage of it is the resolution of 1920×1080, even though the goal of the company is to reach the 4K. There is no doubt that its disadvantage is that there is no 3D sound included in the system.
HTC Re Vive
The HTC Re Vive glasses is another option that has been launched recently on the market. Those who tried it tell that the sensation of immersion is the most complete compared to the Oculus Re Vive and to the Samsung Gear VR. One of the main advantages that the glasses show is the ability to stop you and test the room you are in, increasing the presence and interactivity levels compared to other appliances.
Samsung Gear VR
On March, Samsung launched its Gear VR glasses. These virtual reality glasses are designed to experiment 3D video games and audiovisual contents linked to high performance phones. The company is now making crucial testing to find out apps and contents to justify its high price (249€). Visual experience is complete enough, thanks to its high resolution screen and sensors has been incorporated to avoid trembling images. Thus, the gamer will not only enjoy its favorite video game but also visualize the recorded contents of its phone as if it was in a cinema. It also includes an entertaining area with live music, extracts from various music shows and theatre acting.
