We are entering a new era in home entertainment. Virtual Reality is making its way into our dens and games rooms, taking video game fun to the next level. But is your room set up properly to make the most of the VR experience?
First off, you need to figure out which is the best headset for you. For example, the Oculus Rift is relatively lightweight, if you’re worried about straining your neck. However, it is a mid-price choice – and you might want to shop around if you’d like something cheaper.
And once you’ve made your choice, you need to create a space to move around in while you’re wearing it. One key thing to think about is where the cables dangle. It can be handy to get them out of the way by threading them from a ceiling bungee. But be careful – it’s not as easy as it looks!
There’s a lot to think about when you’re setting up your VR system, but it’s worth it! We’ve created a useful new infographic to ease you through the process, from choosing your headset to getting it installed.
Virtual Reality is going to be all kinds of fun once you get into the swing. Once it’s set up, you’ll be able to visit infinite worlds, all from the comfort of your living room!
