Immerse Virtual Reality Headset
If, like us, the idea of virtual reality fills you with wonderfully nerdy giddiness and excitement, then you’ll no doubt have heard of the Oculus Rift that’s been taking the VR world by storm of late. However, it also comes with a very hefty price tag, which unsurprisingly puts people off the whole thing. Tripping out with a lens strapped to your face sounds awesome, but not when it costs more then your rent! Besides, it’s not even available until 2016.
Fear not, oh pioneer of the digital universe, there is an answer! The Immerse Virtual Reality Headset is a brand new and ever-so-affordable venture into new and realistic worlds . Instead of using specialised hardware, it simply utilises what most of us carry around in our pockets all day anyway, our smartphones! That means that not only is it an awful lot friendlier to your budget, it’s also compatible with literally hundreds of free (or at least very cheap) apps that have been specially made for a VR experience. Just have a look on the Play Store and Apple Store and you’ll see what we mean. There’s something on there for just about everyone, from movies rendered in mind blowing 3D, immersive games or just somewhere new to have a wander. The smartphone screen is your oyster!
The headset is really easy to use. Just get your app ready and then slot your phone into the front piece of the enclosure (it’s adjustable and spring loaded, so holds the vast majority of smartphones safely and snuggly). All you have to do then is pop it on your head and adjust the straps to ensure a comfortable fit. Hey presto! You’re now shooting through space, riding a roller coaster, hanging out with some dinosaurs or doing whatever it is you’ve decided to do in your virtual world, all from the comfort of your living room!
We’ve made a handy unboxing video for anyone that would like to have a closer look at the headset, which you can check out below. If you’re sold already and just want to get yourself immersed as fast as possible, click here to go to the product page!
