VR Headsets for our Courses

What is a virtual reality headset?

A VR headset is a device that you wear over your eyes like a pair of goggles. It blocks out all external light and shows you an image on a high-definition screen in front of your eyes. The goal of the VR headset is to immerse you in the virtual reality environment and world. VR headsets track your head movement, so that when you move your head to look around, your view in the virtual environment moves too. This allows you to be completely immersed in the virtual world.

A very popular VR headset is the Google Cardboard, with 5 million sold by January 2016. It’s a low cost (£10-20) VR viewer that anyone can build or buy. Your mobile phone is inserted into the viewer and with specially designed lenses, your mobile screen creates the virtual experience.

Our app is specifically created for mobile VR viewers such as Merge VR, which utilise the sensors on your mobile to change the view on your screen if you move your head.
