What is the VRBox Headset?
VRBox is quite simply the easiest, most convenient and affordable way to experience Virtual Reality today. Why spend thousands on a dedicated headset and PC to run it, when you can use your existing smartphone to power the world of VR!
Based on Google's 'Cardboard' technology the VRBox is constructed from high quality ABS plastic with 42mm spherical resin lenses to bring you picture perfect 3D effects.
The sliding phone tray lets you insert your 4.7" to 6.1" phone in seconds, up to and including iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note series! Both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store already feature dozens of quality apps – many of them free – to have you experiencing VR within seconds.
What can I do with the VRBox Headset?
Further down the page you will find a handful of recommended apps for both major platforms including many free ones, here's a summary of what you can expect to find:
Watch dedicated VR demo apps –Take a trip back to the Jurassic era when dinosaurs roamed, or sit yourself on a virtual roller coaster and feel your stomach lurch as you drop steeply over a crest. There are already countless apps created to show off the immersive capabilities of VR with more appearing every day.
Watch movies – Perhaps you'd prefer to just sit and watch instead? Immerse yourself in a virtual cinema; look around at the seats, the projector, fellow patrons, the big screen – then play movies from your own collection! There are also plenty of dedicated 'storytelling' apps designed specifically for VR, some of which will blow your mind.
Play VR games – The included Bluetooth controller will let you interact with selected apps and games in a way that you have never done before. Save the world from a zombie apocalypse or navigate your way around an open world in which you feel part of the action, not just from the outside looking in.
How does the VRBox Headset work?
The VRBox Headset is a one-size-fits-all design with a flexible, adjustable headband plus adjustable lens distance and focus. It easily adjusts to different head sizes and shapes, eyesight quality and even fits most people with their glasses still on. Once an app is loaded, insert the phone into the sliding holder, then back into the headset. The app will use your phone to render a pair of stereoscopic images which your eyes and brain will interpret as a single 3-dimensional image. Without the headset and lenses you will just see the pair of matching images.
Some apps may also require use of your phone's camera for Augmented Reality functions – a second sliding panel easily opens access to let your camera see the outside world without ruining the immersion.
The included controller requires 2 x AAA batteries which are not included.
Which apps are recommended for use with the VRBox Headset?
As mentioned above there are already countless apps on both major app stores – some good, some not so good – so here is a selection of our favourites to help you get started right away:
* Most of the apps listed above are free, or have a free component, but some may incur charges. Please check carefully before downloading or purchasing as we take no responsibility for costs incurred. This list is presented simply as a reference to get you started in the world of VR. Enjoy!
** Some people may experience nausea when using VR headsets for the first time due to the simulated movement. We encourage users to remain seated until they become accustomed to the headset and to discontinue use if the condition continues.
