      I've recently been in the VR shoppers and at a number of trade shows, both showing off the VR I've commissioned and also gauging users feedback on the options.

      Goggles you put your phone in - these are pretty cool for a movie or a show of some form, but aren't very interactive or comfortable. A good route into the experience though and a pretty inexpensive way to see if you suffer from the VR sickness, a lot of people get very motion sick

      The rift, stay away from older models, the headsets are heavy and the tracking leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not sure why, but personally for the projects I've been using which could be described as architecture workarounds, the setup feels from both inside and outside - the budget model of the Vive. Oculus does seem to be on top and first with a large variation of add-on controllers, but there something about the tech setup, the single tracking that just doesn't have that slick feel. It's too easy for the headset to be "lost signal" when really into the experience. I have to note, I'm yet to try the latest updated headset which is apparently better at not getting lost. If it's about the peripherals, the Rift probably wins, but about the experience to me is all about the Vive ....

      The Vive - compared to all other experiences, this one is the best of the bunch for me. The twin tracking units means you feel more "secure", there's less of the random skipping I've experienced with the Rift. It knows where you are to higher degree of accuracy. Now to feel the very best out of this, you need a beast of a machine and make sure you have plenty of expansion headroom - that means a 1060 just isn't enough. A Vive setup for me is a 3.5k investment, and a worthy one. Could it be done cheaper, probably - is the experience better. I've spent hours in VR recently and to put my stamp on it - we've just signed off 2 setups at 3.5k a pop.

      There are even some excellent tripods now for the sensors as well, and if you're going for it, have the cable on a boom with a spring return on the cable as well so you can be in the vr safely on your own without the trip risk.

        make sure you try them all - it's not a small investment and you don't want to be kicking yourself in 4months time

            I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

                it will manage it, if you do the Steam VR Check - it'll be right on the edge though for frame rates.
