What goes into a VR project budget?

When you pencil out what is needed for a proper VR project, there are important building blocks to consider. First, will a VR headset or a VR projection system be used, or both? Second is a rendering computer with ample graphics capabilities, and possible wide-area motion tracking and other sensor systems such as eye tracking or biofeedback. Third, users will need VR software for creating and rendering their applications. Last but not least, users will want to think about their facilities, personnel, installation, training and support.

The WorldViz VR budgeting guidelines further discusses VR application development considerations such as 3D graphics, VR programming, and custom development.

Lastly, the 2023 budgeting guidelines give readers an idea of typical VR project budgeting examples, from low-cost barebone DIY systems starting at $1,500 to commercial integrated mid-tier systems starting at $8,000, and fully integrated VR projection and specialty VR systems starting at $50,000.
