The best VR accessories for 2024

<p>Virtual reality has come a long, long way since the days of <a data-i13n="cpos:1;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/2017-07-18-tech-hunters-nintendo-virtual-boy.html">Nintendo’s doomed Virtual Boy[/url]. The <a data-i13n="cpos:2;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/meta-quest-3-review-mixed-reality-vr-150009788.html">Meta Quest 3[/url] just came out, Sony continues to offer support for the PS VR2 and there are a number of PC-connected headsets from HP, HTC, Vive and others. If you or someone you love has just dove head-first into the virtual world by buying one of these devices, the right accessories can make the experience even better than they thought it could be. But like any growing industry, there’s a growing number of virtual reality accessories out there and figuring out which are actually worth buying can be confusing. That’s where we come in: here are the best VR accessories for folks tired of boring-old actual reality.

We tried to keep these picks as universal as possible, to suit the various VR ecosystems out there. However, some of the best VR accessories only work on certain platforms and we’ll note this stuff as we go. We also stayed away from experimental and expensive add-ons, <a data-i13n="cpos:3;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/virtuix-omni-one-vr-treadmill-customers-100020114.html">like treadmills[/url] and <a data-i13n="cpos:4;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/2017-07-02-bhaptics-tactsuit-vr-haptic-feedback-htc-vive-x-demo-day.html">force feedback clothing,[/url] to keep you from bankruptcy.</p>

<h2>FAQs</h2>
<h3>What equipment do you need for VR?</h3>
<p>What you need depends on the VR headset you buy. Some devices, like the <a data-i13n="cpos:5;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/meta-quest-3-review-mixed-reality-vr-150009788.html">Meta Quest 3[/url], are entirely standalone, which means you don't need anything but the headset itself to use it. Other VR headsets need to be connected to a system from which it can draw power and run software. Some systems, like the <a data-i13n="cpos:6;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/hp-reverb-g2-review-vr-windows-mixed-reality-130012057.html">HP Reverb G2[/url], must connect to a PC, while others like the <a data-i13n="cpos:7;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/playstation-vr2-review-great-headset-should-be-cheaper-130032254.html">PS VR2[/url] can connect to <a data-i13n="cpos:8;pos:1" href="https://www.engadget.com/best-gaming-console-140057674.html">gaming consoles[/url] like the PS5. Most VR headsets come with the basic controllers you'll need to control actions and movement in virtual worlds.</p>
<span id="end-legacy-contents"></span><h3>What's the difference between PC VR, Smartphone VR and Gaming Console VR?</h3>
<p>The main difference between those three VR systems is the main machine that allows the VR headset to run. PC VR headsets require a PC, like a gaming laptop or desktop, to run, while smartphone and gaming console VR systems require smartphones and gaming consoles, respectively, to work.</p>
<h3>Do all VR headsets need a phone?</h3>
<p>No, not all VR headsets need a phone to work. Many VR headsets have build in displays that sit in front of your eyes and basically act as your window into the virtual world.</p>This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/best-vr-accessories-150021126.html?src=rss
