The fastest growing technology are drones and VR. Have you seen a VR headset being used by a drone racer? So, yes, they work together. But, don’t be surprised to know that there are also VR drones or drones compatible with VR.
To those who’ve never seen or used a VR, VR means virtual reality. It is an advance technology that uses software to somewhat generate images, sounds, background setting and enable the user to interact with what they see on its display screen. VRs are used in gaming because it simulates the user’s presence within the VR world. A person using VR is able to play around, move and connect with objects that are seen on the screen.
But how does it VR work exactly?
A VR headset needs either a smartphone or console or even a PC to run the app. The goal here is to create 3D virtual setting. Wherever you look, the screen follows you. So, it isn’t like watching TV or playing a computer game using your desktop monitor. What happens when you use VR is that the video is sent to your console or whatever you are using to connect or run the video (or game) through HDMI cable. You will need headphones for a more immersed experienced. Premium headsets have a head tracking capability, unlike the Cardboard. There are several available VR headsets today. Some are way too expensive, some are cheap. The Oculus rift cost about $600, the playstation VR is almost $400, the HTC is more than $750 while the cheapest is the Samsung Gear VR that cost a little less than $100.

If you love playing games, watching movies and love the feeling of being out of this world, drone or VRs are the way to go. For kids, there’s nothing wrong with VR box or VR headset. For beginners, google cardboard is recommended. Since it is for beginners, it’s cheaper and simple but it works well with android and iOS.
