All your VR headsets are belong to China (pictures)

If there's one thing that stood out at CES Asia, it's the fact that Chinese manufacturers have taken to VR headsets like ducks to water.

SVR Glass

SHANGHAI -- There was no shortage of VR headsets on display at CES Asia, and if this trend continues, expect to see more of the same at the Computex show next week in Taiwan.

Here's the SVR Glass, a cheap $50 Samsung Galaxy Gear VR clone that works with phones with screen sizes ranging from 4.7 to 6 inches.

ViLover

Instead of just creating a VR headset, the ViLover is actually a game designed for VR that allows players to interact with female anime characters.

It's a free game, but I'm told there will be in-app purchases. If you're into sort of thing...

Deepon E2

While most VR headsets on show at CES Asia take the smartphone route, the Deepon E2 is like the Oculus Rift and has a built-in screen.

Dlodo VR

While the company's name may be nigh unpronounceable in polite company, Dlodo's funky sunglasses-style VR headsets are Android-powered and can run VR videos over an SD card or through built-in Wi-Fi. No phone or PC required.

Dlodo K1

Dlodo's other VR headset, the K1, sticks to a more conventional setup, and uses your smartphone screen. It's very boxy but was on show in a range of colours.

Viulux

Viulux's VR headset looks a lot like the Oculus Rift, but the stand did draw a crowd thanks to a seat that works in tandem with the VR video on the headset, making for a full-body VR experience.

Wasai

Instead of showing off its hardware, Wasai seemed to be using a re-badged Oculus Rift to sell VR experiences to attendees -- each turn cost 30 yuan (about $5) while two set you back 50 yuan ($8).
