Description

Course Last Updated: August 2016

--------------------------------------------------

Have you ever wanted to experience the new & exciting world of virtual reality at home, but though it was too expensive? 

Welcome to the Virtual Reality Lifestyle: How to Use a VR Headset with your Smartphone course!

If you have ever heard of or seen virtual reality, but thought it would cost way too much for you, then you're in the right place! New technologies, (such as VR headsets and smart glasses) are always very expensive when they first come out. Some VR headsets can cost upwards to $1000. In this course, I will show you the most affordable place to purchase VR headsets, so you can get a full VR experience for under $25!

Unlike PC powered headsets such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, this course will demonstrate mobile VR headsets which can be powered using your smartphone to view virtual reality video and games.

I will also demonstrate how you can actually make your own cardboard VR headset at home, using common household materials. Creating your own headset takes some time and requires a small investment, but can be a really fun project if you are a ‘do it yourself’ type of person.

This course also covers how to attach your smartphone to the VR headsets, how to download free VR games & apps, and you will actually join me as I demonstrate how to play various virtual reality games using your new headset.

So are you ready to experience the amazing world of virtual reality?

  • Overview of Different Types of VR Headsets
  • Where to Purchase VR Headsets
