For someone special to you:
The HTC Vive Headset is a great present for that special person if your life that has had an on-going interest in technology and VR. It’s one of the most immersive experiences you can get, allowing you to move freely around a 3.5m² space whilst in VR, as well as having an extensive range of VR games and experiences on the market.
The Oculus Rift is at it’s lowest price ever for a limited time only! With immersive graphics and the ability to move around a 1.5m² space (expandable up to 2.5m² with an extra sensor) the Rift offers a VR experience that rivals the HTC Vive.
