This is the virtual reality headset that couples with a smartphone to create immersive 360° experiences when watching videos or playing games. A 4-6″-long smartphone fits into the front of the headset, aligning one’s eyes with the device’s screen while the headset secures around the head using an elastic band with hook-and-loop fasteners. An app (compatible with Android and iOS) uses a smartphone’s accelerometer to provide the user with an interactive virtual adventure full of 3D environments that move when the smartphone moves. In addition to viewing 3D movie trailers, one can assume the persona of a Great White Shark (or other species) and roam underwater with 360º movement for prey and buried treasure, take a virtual tour of Los Angeles‘ Santa Monica Pier to play a sampling of interactive games, or take part in an underground hovercraft race that requires tilting and panning the viewer/smartphone to steer. Price $49.95
