Rent VR Headsets
We also rent an extensive range of virtual reality headsets. For ease of use and simplicity we recommend the Samsung Gear VR headset and these pair with our Samsung phones available to rent separately. These are an excellent way to experience the best of Virtual Reality and are particularly easy to set up compared to other more complex solutions. You simply insert the Samsung phone (see below for suitable phones) into the headset and enjoy the experience.
We can also rent HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Playstation VR and Microsoft HoloLens equipment along with many other VR headsets by prior arrangement.
The Gear VR is controlled by a simple track pad but most of the interface is navigated by moving your head to look at what you want, then tapping the trackpad to select it. Pressing the back button takes you back a page and a prolonged press brings up a menu for adjusting the brightness, returning to the home page, and activating the 'pass through' camera, where you can see what's in front of you by using the phone's rear camera.
The Gear VR is comfortable to wear and requires a mobile device to power it, specifically the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, S7 and S7 Edge.
The best feature of Gear VR is that it doesn't depend on tethered wires to a computer whilst Oculus, Vive and PS VR all depend on a tether, which can inhibit the experience.
