The Only VR Newsletter for the Travel Industry

Note from the Editor: While gaming is always prominently featured in promotions for various VR headsets, our readers want to know what is the best headset for experiencing travel. So we dived in. Turns out Google Daydream and Samsung VR Gear –the darlings of a couple of years ago- are no longer- literally and figuratively.  This first story gives a good look at the range of options depending on budget. This and other articles point to Oculus Quest as being the best overall although there are definitely a couple of very inexpensive options too. However, since we put together this issue, Oculus announced that Quest 2 will be coming out on October 13th and that promises to deliver an even better experience, and at a lower cost. And—I suggest you read to the end to see what FB has in mind for the AR glasses that you are definitely going to want!
