You get two types of Virtual Reality headsets. 3DOF VR headsets and 6DOF VR Headsets. The 3DOF VR headsets like the Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Go and Google Cardboard units. These Virtual Reality headsets allow you to experience virtual reality as a spectator. You cannot physically move in the virtual reality space because the headset does not track your body movement.
These Virtual Reality Headsets are generally good for static virtual reality experiences where the user doesn’t move around inside virtual reality and does not need to interact with objects inside the virtual reality experience like picking up objects and interacting with these objects. 3DOF virtual reality headsets in some cases use a dot in the centre of your field of view and a button on the headset to allow you to interact with objects by looking at something or looking at something and then clicking the button. The Oculus Go units and some Samsung Gear VR units come with a controller that allows you to interact with the objects in Virtual Reality.
