Abstract

Since the worldly notable companies put serious investment in VR headsets in 2014, everything about VR has reemerged from the deep of fiction-like prototypes to the surface of actual consumer products. This reemergence is much stronger than the past with very active supports from commercial VR content creation devices like 360-degree cameras. In this paper, we study important triggers and trends related to VR headsets from 2014 to now. In details, we discuss about the timeline of important events, high potential related products together with example usage scenarios, major user experience concerns with possible solutions, and future possibilities led by VR headsets. We also propose novel usage scenarios where recently popular heart rate monitoring wearable devices are used in combination with VR headsets in order to open up a new communication channel between the headset and the wearer.
