Design

Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.adjustable IPD
HTC Vive
Interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the center of your eyes. Without adjustable IPD, the lenses of a VR headset may not line up with your pupils, which can result in eye strain and nausea.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Display & Lenses

1.resolution

2160 x 1200px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
A wider field of view assures an immersive and realistic experience.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
With adjustable lenses, the device can assure a sharp and clear image for a wide range of users, including users who usually wear glasses.
5.Has a display
HTC Vive
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

Tracking

As your head moves, the images move in real-time, assuring a realistic experience.
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
The headset has multiple sensors and cameras that assure low latency tracking for 360° movements.
The device can track your position in space and warn you if you are about to hit something.
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
The gesture control function allows you to manipulate virtual objects.
7.tracking area

4.6 x 4.6m

The area of the surface that can be used for VR or AR simulations. A larger tracking area allows you more freedom of movement.
With an infrared sensor the device can detect motion by measuring the infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view.
More tracking sensors allow a faster response to the user’s actions, making the interaction with the virtual environment more intuitive.

Connectivity

Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.

Features

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
The device comes with a game controller.
Devices with integrated audio are more convenient to use, as you don't have worry about connecting headphones or microphones.
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
The device comes with handheld wireless controllers that are used for gesture control and/or movement tracking.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
