Wanna fly an F-35 Lightning II? Maybe you can with a Vive

Or even go house hunting in Dubai sitting on your living room couch in Bandra.

Finally, after a lot of buzz around HTC’s Vive at the CES earlier this year, the company has finally brought the Cosmos to Indian soil. Priced at ₹89,990, it ain’t as cheap. For those wondering what the Vive is, well, it is a powerful VR headset that puts you physically into a virtual world. After you soak in that last sentence, with a Vive you can be yourself, physically, into a virtual reality world, where you can do what you want — play games, learn to drive, or fly, visit an area, blah, blah, blah…. So you can now virtually fly a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, learn how to weld, or even go house hunting abroad from your living room. Based on a dual 3.4in headset 90Hz display with a resolution of 1440x1700 in each eye, with stereo audio, and a lot of extremely high-end sensors and circuitry, this will change the VR game ahead.  So if you are a gamer, or a car dealer, you could use it for play or business.
