What is Virtual Reality?
In the early 1980’s, the term ‘Virtual Reality’ was coined in a Sci-Fi novel and it has replaced the most popular term of those times – ‘Artificial Reality’. To be exact, Virtual Reality is nothing but artificially replicating the human senses like Touch, Hearing, Visuals and Smell. Of-course, not all the VR headsets come with all these features. What we see in the budget VR headset market is those with the senses like Visuals and Hearing. The Virtual Reality headsets are mostly famous for their ability to simulate the 360 degree environment.

Among the ten VR goggles we’ve picked, the Procus Pro VR (#1) and My VR Goggles Infinity (#2) have been our favorite due to their unique features and amazing VR experience.
