VRidge: no need to be rich to enjoy your games in virtual reality

To take advantage of virtual reality at its best, it is necessary today to spend several hundred euros in helmets, and nearly as much in hardware to run the whole. If you have the machine VRidge and Cardboard deal simulate a Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.

With the release of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, 2016 is undoubtedly the year of virtual reality. For those who do not want to spend that much, however, there are mobile alternatives such as Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR. In order to create a bridge between these two worlds and to satisfy those who are not willing to buy an expensive helmet RiftCat offers VRidge, a service that aims to bridge the gap between the two worlds.

VRidge works in two steps, with one side of a server for Windows machines (available on the official website) and the other of an Android application. Once paired the two parties on the same local network, it becomes possible to streamer or its Oculus SteamVR titles directly on his phone to enjoy using a mobile headset.

Designed originally for the Oculus Rift only, VRidge recently added compatibility with SteamVR games. However some users note the presence of bugs and compatible games. So do not expect the same experience, but it can at least afford to give a taste of the experience you can get if you decide to splurge on one of the two main VR helmets on the market.
