what is virtual reality?

If you're interested in cutting edge event entertainment, you’ve most likely heard of virtual reality (VR), but what is it? Essentially, virtual reality is the use of a headset that shows the user an entirely virtual, 360 world. When you are in virtual reality, you are able to look all around while seeing everything in your virtual environment as if you're really there. For example, in a virtual reality experience you might be looking out from the peak of Mt. Everest, gazing down at the side of the mountain while surrounded by clouds. In a different VR experience, you could just as easily be racing in a high-end sports car, turning your head to watch the track fly by, or keeping your eyes on the road while you chase the competition. In certain types of virtual reality, you can use motion-tracked controllers to actually interact with objects in your virtual world, so if you see something in front of you, don’t be shy! Reach out and touch it! The truth is that VR can be anything you want it to be, and our library of VR experiences is overflowing with options that will amaze guests at your next event.

The most crucial component of any VR equipment rental is the headset, and in the next section we will go through exactly what a VR headset is.

What is a VR headset?

A few things are common to all VR headsets. The first being that they are all equipped with special, high-resolution lenses that are designed to let the user see their virtual environment in 360 degrees. When your guests look right, they will really be looking right in their virtual world, seeing what’s around them. What if they want to turn in circles? Same thing! Wherever you look using a VR headset, your vision will be tracked and you will be able to see in that direction in your virtual space.

Sometimes when you’re in a virtual reality experience, you will want to dodge a projectile, duck under a branch, head a soccer ball, or peek around a corner. In order to allow that to happen, certain headsets are equipped with sensors that track your movement. Using these headsets, you are able to add a whole different dimension to your VR experience.

All of the headsets we use were chosen not only for their technical capabilities, but also for their comfort. Because VR headsets are such a vital piece of the VR experience, we feel it’s important that your guests are fully immersed using a headset that isn’t too bulky, too tight, or too uncomfortable, and that no matter how many guests your VR experience attracts, swapping the headset from one guest to another is no problem. This level of comfort is achieved through using adjustable straps and high-quality materials throughout the headset design.

VR headsets are essentially just what they sound like: a headset. However, at VirtualRealityRental.co we pay special attention to which headsets have the highest image quality, have the most exact, pinpoint motion tracking accuracy, and of course, have the highest level of comfort possible. Through years of experience executing VR activations at corporate events, we are confident that our VR technology is the absolute best for creating an amazing guest experience.
