Here is an example of what the Oculus Rift Headset can be used for by Arch Virtual.
Bought by Facebook in 2014 and a popular choice for gamers, the Oculus Rift Headset is another VR system set to revolutionise the industry in 2016.
Like the HTC Vive, the Oculus Rift is a full VR experience. This system comes with a VR Headset with integrated headphones and an Xbox One controller for control and navigation, this is instead of the 2 wireless controls as seen with the HTC Vive. The Xbox controller is to act as a stop gap until the release of the Oculus Touch wireless controllers which are set to release later in 2016.
Yes, this system lacks the motion sensors and wireless control which come with the HTC Vive, although this is reflected in the price. It also means that the oculus can be used at a desk, navigating using the Xbox One controller rather than having to use a full room to walk around. The Oculus Rift will also require connection to a high-spec powerful PC to function similar to the Vive.
The Oculus Rift is definitely in the premium VR category, seems to be the most popular among the construction professionals who are looking to be early adopters in VR.
