The Totem virtual reality headset is a device being developed by Canadian company Vrvana. This headset includes built-in cameras and a degree of external compatibility that could set it apart from the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality headsets.

The Totem is equipped with low-latency hardware-accelerated motion tracking, a 1080p OLED display and a 90-degree field of view. However, its two on-board cameras are its best feature. These 1080p cameras give the user the ability to switch from virtual reality back to the real world in no time via the touch of a button, which would make it more bearable to wear the headset for extended periods of time.

This virtual reality headset has HDMI compatibility which allows you to plug it into gaming consoles like the Xbox One and PS4 as well as smartphones.
