Virtual reality is here to stay and at www.thegadgetpill.com we intend to continue to review/update our site with information as it pertains to this new and exciting world we are all entering into.
There are multiple players in the virtual reality world, all having pros and cons to their flagship products, but in reality all are really in their infancy still. We had earlier reviewed the
Samsung Gear Virtual Reality Product here
Facebook works on Oculus Rift, Sony develops the Morpheus Project, Samsung will come with VR Gear, and Valve in cooperation with HTC, prepares for us Steam VR. So, all big names in technology are rushing to launch on the market a form or another of virtual reality device.Even the old Microsoft wants to enter the trendy boys club with their Hololens.
Google instead minds its own business and launches what really matters: the platform on which these devices are used. Well, VR helmets will have all sorts of purposes, from video games to training staff in companies for increased efficiency, but one thing is right: these devices will cause the demand of video content to grow to a whole new level.
Forget 3D TV, 4K resolutions and other last generation things like that, because the 360 degrees movies take the stage! Although it can be watched on the computer using the Chrome browser and dragging the image with your mouse to change the angle, the video format looks really good only on a VR headset.
With a device like Oculus Rift, the 360 degrees image is all around you. Rotate your head and see what happens on the left or right behind you! Virtual reality comes and Youtube is already prepared.
