VR for Cell Phones
Smartphones are probably the most affordable VR option on the market right now. You can download VR apps to your phone, then slide the phone into a smartphone-compatible wearable VR device. These products are called VR or virtual reality goggles, glasses, headsets or viewers. These devices transform your phone become into a portal to the virtual world. VR headsets are perfect for 360-degree gaming. VR on cell phones is not limited to gaming. It has other applications in education (virtual classroom) or real estate 360 degrees property tours.
How to Choose a VR Headset
When choosing a VR Headset you should consider the different features and options available. Here are some of the features of current VR devices for cell phones, to consider.
VR devices can be adjust to fit the user’s face. Since VR is dependent upon seeing the virtual world through two lenses, the experience may differ based on the size and shape of your face. To compensate for this, many devices let you make adjustments to two important specifications:
Focus – Many VR devices have a focus dial that ever-so-slightly moves the screen toward or away from your eyes, to keep the images in sharp focus and reduce blurriness.
Pupillary distance (PD) – The distance between pupils will vary from person to person, which could have an impact on image alignment and picture quality. With adjustable PD, you can calibrate the screens to line up with your eyes for an all-around better VR experience.
VR Headset Faceplate cushion
If you plan on using your VR device for long periods, you may want to consider a device with built-in faceplate cushions for added comfort.
VR Headset Vents
Some VR headsets have vents along the edges to help your face and the device stay cool.
VR Headphone jack openings
If you want to use headphones with your VR device, the device will need to have an opening to accommodate the headphone jack on your phone, or you might want to connect to wireless headphones via Bluetooth.
VR Headset Compatibility
Since VR devices for cell phones use your smartphone to function, you will need to make sure the VR device is compatible with your phone. Some devices will only work with iPhones, while others are designed to work with specific Android models.
Some VR headsets work with a wide range of phone sizes and types.
