There are sensitive-touch surfaces on both sides of the headband and they contain no buttons. This feature can be a little tough to handle for the beginners who just stepped into the virtual reality world.
If mobile apps will rise and shine in the VR business, Zeiss VR One will be a total star and a value-potential device. But if the opposite happens, meaning PC and HMD based platforms will improve and dominate, mobile compatible ones will need to develop a bit more. However, Zeiss is one of the best suitable hardware devices for who wants to buy a VR headset.
This is the mobile and PC- multipurpose VR headset, Visus had a really hard time during the release process but, now it is readily available.
Produced for both iOS and Android, another smartphone integrated device is out on the platform. The other very unique feature is that the HMD concept is used in PC’s, Visus VR is really different than the others. It has 110° FOV and a software system named Tridef.
Tridef Software System is only devised for this product, this means that the system is only used by the virtual reality platform so you can play the 2D games in the 3D display which is a huge innovation.

9. Fove VR
One of the youngest representatives in the VR technology is Fove VR. The only delegate in the foevated rendering, this is the next generation VR headset product which game developers will easily fall in love with.
