Which To Choose?

With so many choices of headsets, we'll help you decide which is best for your use here.

Below are some common scenarios where our gear can help, then here we give a detailed comparison of the different equipment, such as how much floor space is required, where they work, what else is needed, how the tracking and screen resolution compare, and more.

An easier setup and something everyone can enjoy is priority here.

Already own a PlayStation 4?

If you already own a PlayStation 4 games console, the PlayStation VR system is a great choice. It plugs into your console, everyone else can watch what’s happening on your TV (fantastic for keeping lots of kids entertained) and you can choose from a range of games. The included camera tracks the headset and the two included controllers, and we include instructions of how to plug everything in. Within 5 – 10 minutes you’ll be fully setup and running. Or if you don’t already own a PlayStation 4 games console, we rent one too, and all you need is a TV and some space in the room.

Oculus Go & Oculus Quest requires Nothing Else During Use

The Oculus Go is another great choice. Just pop an included AA battery into the controller, turn on the headset, and you’re in VR. You can type in your Wi-Fi password, and choose from a range of content, such as roller coasters for example. Party guests can pop on the headset, grab the controller, and enjoy the experience. Nothing else beyond Wi-Fi internet is required (just to load content, it still works without Wi-Fi), and two headsets are included in our bundle.

The Oculus Quest is very much like the Oculus Go, but it comes with two controllers and it tracks your movement around the room, making it amazing for gaming. It takes just a few seconds when you turn the headset on to tell it where the boundary is, and for safety it shows you the real world when you're at the boundary. As with the Go, no wires and no PC etc means true freedom.

For The Best Possible Experience

Lastly for the best possible experience, we’d recommend the Samsung Odyssey+, HTC Vive Pro or Oculus Rift. These options plug into a gaming PC (which we also rent if you need one) which then plugs into your TV, so everyone can watch what’s happening (again a great way to keep everyone else entertained). They include two wireless controllers as opposed to one with the Oculus Go (so they allow for more interactive games), the tracking is superior to the PlayStation VR, and there’s a wider range of games made for the systems. The Samsung Odyssey+ is ideal in that it’s very easy to setup, with no need to place sensors in the room. Our included AA batteries go into the controllers, the headset plugs into the PC, and built-in cameras track the surroundings to determine where you’re moving.

Will your PC work with VR?

By clicking on the product page of each headset, then looking under the heading "PC Requirements", there are simple free tools to download that will tell you if your PC will should with the headset or not. And if you do need a Gaming PC, we also rent those here.

If you'd like more detail to compare the options, please see our comparison of the equipment here, or of course do feel free to contact us.

VR is a fantastic way to grab attention and liven up an event. In many cases, there’s VR experiences that match your theme too.

Easy to Use VR for 360 Degree Videos & More

Especially if you have a 360-degree video in mind, the Oculus Go is perfect. There’s virtually no setup involved, and we can usually pre-load the video onto the headset prior to sending. Guests can use the gear either standing or sitting, and so they work even with small booths.

For The Best Possible Experience

For a more interactive experience, the PC based headsets (Samsung Odyssey+, HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Rift) provide a ton of fun. We rent the Gaming PCs too, with the software pre-installed ready to go, and can help you rent TVs if needed. Having a big TV where people can see what’s happening is a great draw to your booth.

Each headset has its own benefits, such as the Samsung offering easier setup (no external sensors needed), the HTC offering the most accurate tracking (via two external sensors, in opposite corners of your booth), and the Oculus Rift being a fantastic all-round set.

Please see our detailed comparison of the equipment here, or of course we can help you choose VR experiences and the gear to fit your requirements. Do feel free to contact us to enquire what we might recommend for your event.

When it comes to the best gaming options, PC based headsets just cannot be beat.

HTC Vive & Vive Pro

The HTC Vive and HTC Vive Pro offer the best 360-degree tracking, with two base stations placed above head height (we include clamps and also rent light stands) in opposite corners of your space, up to 5 meters apart. The headset and controllers talk to the base stations to calculate the most accurate position of all the VR headsets.

The Vive Pro offers a 78% higher resolution than the regular Vive, built-in headphones, plus a solid head-strap.

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift uses two sensors that sit in front of you (either side of your TV) to track the position of your headset and controllers, and that works very well. If you do intend to face the opposite direction however, that's where the HTC Vive tracking bests the Rift.

Samsung Odyssey+

The Samsung Odyssey+ takes a new approach to tracking, by not requiring any external sensors. Instead, built-in cameras calculate your position, and that of your controllers, and it works brilliantly! The resolution is also as high as that of the Vive Pro, but an added filter on top means it's even harder to see the pixels.

Need a Gaming PC?

By clicking on the product page of each headset, then looking under the heading "PC Requirements", there are simple free tools to download that will tell you if your PC will should with the headset or not. And if you do need a Gaming PC, we also rent those here.
