One of the downsides of PC peripheral headsets like the Oculus Rift is that they require high resolution screens and motion sensors, which are expensive.
Case-based virtual reality displays that are simply holders for smartphones solve trade that problem for a different one — cell phones don’t have enough power to run good virtual reality simulations.
The new headset from Virsus VR, already available for pre-order for $99, aims to be the best of both worlds byÂ using your existing smartphone for its screen and motion sensors, and your PC to run the simulation.
Shipping starts this December.
