VR & MR Headsets

Hi, I am a undergraduate student in my last semester. My name is Randy Pang Chung and this would be my first blog post here and in my life.

The topic is about my favourite VR and MR headsets but to be frank, I do not own any headset nor have I ever tried one. This is just my opinion based on what I’ve seen and heard.

Firstly, of all the VR headset, I only know of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation VR (PSVR) headset. Out of these three, I would be more interested in the PSVR as I more actively play console games as opposed to PC games.

However, the Oculus’ controllers, the Oculus Touch strikes me as the best controller with its compactness and ergonomic design. Its design similar to console controllers also strike my fancy.

As for the MR headsets, from what I have seen from brief search on the web, the best in my opinion is Microsoft’s HoloLens.

While, I would be fine gaming on a tethered VR headset, I feel that a MR headset that incorporates the physical world into the image, the headset should allow the user the freedom to roam about, else it would restrict application of the technology if the user is bound to the room.
