When VR isn’t VR

Posted: , By Patcoola

A lot of virtual reality (VR) content on the Internet is in fact not VR. YouTube the biggest source of free VR videos currently does not support VR content. However, YouTube says they are working on it and they do currently support headsets. Many VR applications are not VR at all, meaning your headset is just a monitor. Many VR content on the Internet is flat head tracking or stereoscopic 3D.

In order for VR to be true VR, the content has to meet two requirements. First head tracking, VR has to have some ability to look around. The second requirement is side-by-side (SBS) 3D also known as stereoscopic 3D. Having both head tracking and stereoscopic 3D is what makes VR an immersive experience.
