a device that helps enhance a virtual reality experience by enabling greater immersion within the virtual world

The most common VR peripherals are gloves or controllers e.g. the Oculus Touch that look to mirror the experiencer’s innate movements and help to facilitate better active presence.

Other VR peripherals include those looking to simulate real-life objects or apparatus e.g. bikes (VirZoom), weapons (PS VR Aim, The VR-15 from VRsenal), shoes (Taclim). Peripherals can also be classed as devices that help enhance the environment e.g. candles.
