When To Choose Immersive VR Headset Technology
Immersive headset-based VR is expensive to create, complex, and often unfamiliar and unavailable technology. Identifying a unique capability of headset VR is critical. If the answer to the question “Can you do the same thing in a 2D-environment or in a virtual reality environment without a headset?” is “Yes” then the problem or the solution is ill defined for Headset VR. Before you consider developing or buying an immersive headset based VR serious game, ensure you have identified an experience, training goal, or serious game that can ONLY be done in Headset VR.
