A virtual reality headset also referred as VR headset is a hardware device that is used to deliver virtual reality experience for three-dimensional simulations, pc games, and other applications like movies, play stations, and others. VR headset comprises an organic light-emitting diode or liquid crystal display screen, and a head motion monitoring sensor to deliver 3D picture which appears to be real. The sensor fitted in the VR headset follows the head motion and delivers 3D images with up to 360-degree view following head movement. VR headsets are increasingly being used in the training methods, engineering design process, corporate environments, and for engagement of audiences such as VR gaming, sports, movies, and others. Furthermore, VR headsets are commonly used in the medical industry to train medical scholars for surgical procedures and other operations. In addition, with advancements in technology, VR headsets with eye and motion tracking are under development to enhance the user’s virtual reality experience in the upcoming years.
