GetCardboard VR headset

The latest rage these days is Virtual Reality. With companies like Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Oculus, HTC and others launching new projects based on VR, it is becoming a very exciting new feature that you may want to try. If you are already aware of VR and its features, you may be looking at some affordable options. In today’s post, we take a look at the best affordable VR headsets in India.

What is VR?

VR is short for Virtual Reality. As the term states, it takes you into a different world altogether. It is also called as computer-simulated reality – a computer (the VR headset) processes and depicts an entirely different reality than the one you are in. It works such that you, the user, are shown in this new reality and you are allowed to interact with objects in this new reality.

So in essence, you are transported to a new reality – it can be an actual one or fictional. While previously big displays and small headsets were used to help users experience VR, these days there are a range of portable VR headsets with their own displays that can let you enjoy the VR experience.

To help you experience VR, we have compiled a list of the best affordable VR headsets in India. Check them out below.
