There are two ways to enter a virtual environment; standalone and as an accessory. Standalone has all hardware and software, no cables are needed. With PC VR, the Virtual Reality glasses for PC are an accessory that is linked to a PC or laptop. The advantage of this is that you can use the extra processing power that a computer offers, in addition, there is more freedom for custom software development. PC Virtual Reality is particularly suitable for individual use, for professionals to carry out their work or for demonstrations per individual. In addition to 360 video and games, it is possible to create fully room-scale virtual environments with complete freedom of movement. VR controllers play an important role in this to enable interaction.

Nevertheless, you will have to make substantial concessions in terms of employability and technical functionality. Quite simply put, standalone VR is primarily intended for media consumption, while PC VR is particularly suitable for productivity. Think of CAD software, prototyping or medical research.
