Virtual reality was once just a concept we used to see in a sci-fi movies. These days Virtual reality or more commonly known as VR, is fast becoming the new wave of the future! While the technology is new and a lot of the functionality has yet to be tweaked to give users a better and more immersive experience, the HTC VR is looking pretty damn cool!

The youtube channel Tested, test out this “new-fangled” tech, and they definitely give it a thumbs up!

“We have an HTC Vive Pre in the office! Jeremy and Norm show off the capabilities of this virtual reality headset by play testing six roomscale SteamVR demos: Surgeon Simulator, Maximum VR, Waltz of the Wizard, Mod Box, Budget Cuts, and Hover Junkers. This is why VR is going to be awesome!” – Tested

“Experience room-scale gameplay with precise motion tracking and natural controller gestures. Get a glimpse of the real world when you need it thanks to the front-facing camera. Open apps and games without taking off your headset. This is fully immersive VR.” – VIVE

Just watching Jeremy and Norman show off the capabilities of the Virtual Reality head set, our first impressions were very positive, the implementation of Virtual Reality within the games they tested was simply amazing. The graphical content was with out saying outstanding. One feature of the system that didn’t quite sit right, but may be improved later, was the hand grips. While the hand grips acts as controllers for the game, we did notice that interaction with game objects was very limiting at times and confusing for the user. Mind you this may just something that one has to “get used to”.  We are picking at straws when we say this as the overall showcase really did prove to be nothing short of astounding.

The Angels here at Web Marketing Angels might just have to jump on the Virtual Reality train and get our selves a headset to try out!
