    First, thank you somuch for posting a question to VR Heads. I know that I appreciate your visit,and the community needs more people interested in this amazing technology. Iwould love for you to register and log in so that we can continue this thread.

    I know that some people would live a standalone VR system, but the closest thing that I see on the market would be Microsoft HoloLens. It looks like, to me, that mobile based VR will dominate because of the saturation of smartphones.

    I know that Oculus announced they are working on a middle ground between Rift and Gear that would be self contained, but it is very early.

    Also it depends of what do you want for a Wireless VR, Gear VR is Wireless, and so other Android powered devices are wireless, but a high end VR HMD I think needs like a year to be well developed.

    That's definitely something I want, a 4K per-eye wireless All-in-One VR/AR headset... I'm sure we are just a few steps before of that, but that may means a lot of money in the middle.

    This is my question. The company that comes up with a VR headset that has multiple adpaters for all the phones out there will make $$$. To me it is such a niche market and you will be locked into 1 brand of VR goggles if you decided on Pixel, Samsung, LG, Occulus etc.

    Google Cardboard works on most phones, and you just need one of the headsets to put it in. It's not great, but it's cheap and free. Just know that your phone will be HOT when you pull it out (a google carboard/daydream headset with a fan would be great, IMO).

    right now,
    what kind experience that you expect is some thing that can change the answer
    if you just want working vr, right now there is a lot of mobile vr using phone as your processing unit and display
    if you want rift/vive experience, in optimistic view, next year, mobile computing unit evolve in very fast rate lately
    but if you want great vr experience with 4k-like panel than, in optimistic view, 3 year would be good guess
