Hardware is available in all shapes and sizes

  • If you want to reach a broad audience choose a VRmaster cardboard.
  • Do you want a great experience;
    • If there are already Samsung S6-S8 or A5 (2017) phones, choose the Gear VR with controller.
    • The Oculus Go is the best price / quality ratio, if you do not mind using a Facebook account. You can always create a new fake account.
  • If you want the best experience for your interactive VR experience; choose the HTC Vive, which will soon be wireless.
