Useful article. In addition to the two pseudo-VR systems available (Google Cardboard and the Samsung Gear VR) actual Virtual Reality systems like HTC’s Vive (see more) and Facebook’s Oculus Rift will be available soon, along with the PlayStation VR from Sony and maybe Microsoft's HoloLens AR (augmented-reality) project. What will you need to run them? In a nutshell: a good computer with lots of memory, and a graphics accelerator card (yes, folks, you'll need a desktop) computer to put all this in. You'll also need space to play - anywhere from 8x8 feet to as much as 15x15 feet (5x5 metres). It will also be pricey. For now.
