Whether you’re a business trying to attract potential customers in a unique way or you’re simply preparing for a family games night, follow our Infographic guide to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Before you start, take some time to think about the experience you want to offer and the hardware you’re going to use. If you’re representing a business using VR at an event or exhibition the experience should be different to that which you might show to your family or friends. Consider how long you’d like each person to spend with the headset as well as the logistics of the demo, if you want to show the best of VR and offer a real immersive experience the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are the obvious choices but they do require much more preparation. Alternatively if you’re planning on showing something more simple such as 360 videos consider the Samsung Gear VR which is completely portable and simple to set up.
Don’t forget about hygiene! Whether the same headset is going to be used by hundreds of people in a day or you’re showing an active game to a group of friends, the stock headset foam can easily become disgusting with dirt, sweat and bacteria quickly building up. You’ve got a couple of options, disposable covers will improve hygiene but they’re not the most comfortable and can be distracting.
If you want a more professional looking set up consider the VR Cover PU leather foam replacements and covers. Available for the HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and now the Oculus Rift, by using PU leather replacements you don’t need to worry about changing covers between uses, simply wipe down with anti-bacterial wipes or create your own DIY natural headset cleaner to ensure the headset stays fresh and clean.December 27, 2016

Our previous VR Cover for the Oculus Rift also covers the space around the nose and prevents some of the light leaking in. This works well but some people felt it was irritating on their nose. This new version of our Oculus Rift VR Cover does not cover the nose part and is made from stretchable and softer fabric that sits a bit tighter on the Oculus Rift compared to our first version.
We have also improved the overall fit of the VR Cover and sent this version to a few people who experienced problems with our previous version and the feedback has been great.Get Your New Oculus Rift VR Cover NowSeptember 8, 2016
