A Virtual Reality Headset is a display device, worn on the head or as part of a helmet, that has a small display optic in front of both eyes.

Virtual Reality Headsets usually have either one or two small displays with lenses and semi-transparent mirrors embedded in a helmet, eye-glasses (also known as data glasses) or visor. The display units are small and may include CRT, LCDs, Liquid crystal on silicon (LCos), or OLED. Some manufacturers incorporate multiple micro-displays to increase total resolution and field of view.


Virtual Reality Headsets will usually offer Super Video Graphics Array resolution and a 40 field of view, roughly equivalent to the users natural field of view. Super Video Graphics Array resolution (usually 800 600 pixels) is not overly memory intensive so modern graphics cards have no problems providing the two SVGA displays. This avoids problems such as dropped frames.

A typical Virtual Reality Headset will be quite light, weighing around 0.3kg making it comfortable to wear for hours at a time.

Many Virtual Reality Headsets can now be used with any PC running Windows operating system. Usually a USB port is required to power the Virtual Reality Headset as well as a video graphics card capable of rendering 3D video.

Virtual Reality Headsets are ideal for gaming where 3D stereovision makes for a more immersive experience, making the gamer feel that he or she is actually inhabiting a virtual world.

A modern Virtual Reality Headset such as the Z800 3DVisor will incorporate two OLED SVGA microdisplays with on-board 3D frame sequential video processors that provide excellent, sharp and flicker-free motion. An integrated X, Y & Z-axis head-tracker, allows the user to control the direction of view and motion within the game simply by turning his or her head left or right, up or down, and leaning forward or back. To move the character forward, the user simply leans forward. Conversely the user leans back to make the character move back.

Virtual Reality Headsets are perfect for first person shooters games and flight simulators. Free your hands to focus on swapping weapons and typing commands.

Most Virtual Reality Headsets also include stereo earbuds for added immersion and a noise-canceling mics for online gaming.


Virtual Reality Headsets are employed for number of applications in addition to gaming, such as military, medical, design and industrial , as well as extended display options for standard computer programs.

Virtual Reality Headsets create real-world experiences for military training without the expense and danger of live exercises. Remote surgical procedures can be presented in full-color 3D. Industrial applications include 3D CAD/CAM design capabilities and training simulations for facilities operators and service technicians. Scientific applications include 3D viewing of complex molecular or engineering models, 3D physical data etc.

Virtual Reality Headsets can also increase productivity when using standard computer programs. A Virtual Reality Headset can act as a remote or second computer monitor. Excel spreadsheets can be viewed in their entirety and many documents can be arranged as if spread out on a table.
