Are you a fan of 3D movies and immersive games? Or have you wondered what virtual reality is all about? We invite you to come along with us in an adventure into the world of virtual reality headsets, apps and games. We have got our hands on the BlitzWolf BW-VR2 virtual reality glasses and will be playing with it a bit.
What Is Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality (VR) is an immersive experience in which your head movements are tracked in a three-dimensional world. The experience is as if the person has been transported into another environment different from the physical one they are in. This makes Virtual Reality ideally suited to games and movies. There are also other apps that support virtual reality. The entire experience is made possible with the use of virtual reality headsets.
How Virtual Reality Headsets Work
Ordinary glasses show a single image. Virtual reality glasses contain polarised lenses which show two images, one per each eye. These images appear to give an illusion of depth. It creates a realistic, life size, 3D virtual environment.
To use virtual reality Headsets, you will need a PC, console or smartphone to run the app or game. You will also need some input device. In our case, we will be using a smartphone and a Bluetooth controller with our VR glasses.
Here is what our package looks like (without the smartphone):
The VR glasses is on the left and its box is in the background. The Bluetooth controller is in the white box on the right. The BlitzWolf glasses is compatible with 3.5-inch to 6-inch smartphones running either Android OS or iOS. It supports over 300 virtual reality apps in Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
As soon as we are set up, we will settle down to have some VR fun. Of course, we will share our experiences, photos and videos here on Mobility Arena. Do you have any suggestions of virtual reality apps and games for us to try out? Have you used virtual reality glasses? Please share your experience with everyone.
