Now that I Am Cardboard's own Kickstarter has wrapped up (thanks to all our backers, you are truly an awesome bunch of geeks!), we're turning our attention towards exciting new developments in virtual reality. Though not in our own product roster, we believe that these developments reflect our own vision-mission, which is to make VR accessible to a wide range of people!
First up, Google is getting ready to launch Daydream in November. As its name implies, it's a headset that aims to take you on incredible adventures in virtual reality at any time of the day, anywhere you may be.
Google was first to level the playing field as far (as VR accessibility is concerned) with the launch of Google Cardboard a couple of years ago. With Daydream, an even more intuitive headset is ready for many immersive experiences - all in a lightweight, attractive, and breathable package. As its product description goes: "Swing a bat, steer an airship, or even cast a spell with a magic wand", because the Daydream controller allows a wide range of movements to complement your imagination.
Then PlayStation introduced PlayStation VR, which emphasized intuition to enhance the immersive gaming experience.
Gamers are in for a virtual treat with this headset. It puts the gamer right at the center of exciting new frontiers like STAR WARS™ Battlefront™, PlayStation®VR Worlds, Golem, and RIGS Mechanized Combat League. A sleek new design promises hours of distraction-free fun with only your imagination as the limit!
Of course, there's VR-in-a-snap in the form of our very own Flip 360, a pocket-sized smartphone case with a built-in VR headset. You don’t have to bring a separate viewer, because now your phone case is your viewer! This product is a hit with people on the go who want versatility, portability, and ease of use in a slender, durable package.
There's no reason not to immerse yourself in virtual reality today - not when awesome new developments are making themselves available for you.
