What is Zeiss VR One

A German company Carl Zeiss just announced VR One, a virtual reality headset for use with a smartphone to give you access to immersive 3D videos, games and augmented reality.

Work Zeiss VR One with smartphone

The Zeiss VR One works with phones between 4.7 and 5.2 inches with a slide-out tray. Just feed your compatible smartphone into its custom-made tray and then insert the tray with the phone into the VR One. Right now, there are only trays for the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. But as long as the company keeps making new trays for new phones, the headset will work with more phones.

Experience VR content with Zeiss

At present, there isn’t much VR content from the Google Play Store or App store. But you can download a media launcher app with suggestions for a group of third-party apps to download as well as two more apps straight from Zeiss. One is a cinema app to lets you watch videos stored on your phone when sitting in a virtual movie theater or take a trip on Space, another is an augmented reality app which combines the phone’s camera with a bundled cardboard cube to make animated characters appear to be walking in front of you.

Comfortable and unique VR experience with Zeiss VR One

This virtual reality headset allows you to enjoy hours of entertainment without a headache, literal or figurative due to the soft and comfortable design that stays sturdy on your head with flexible straps. The VR One features 3D YouTube video, panoramic photos and a trip through Google Street View you can’t get with a one-dimensional computer screen.

The working principle of Zeiss VR One

There is a paper cude included in the VR one which works as a screen for a variety of 3D images. While you can watch other 3D moments right on your screen, this cube lends an old-fashioned toy aspect to the virtual reality equipment. When watching your videos, 3D stills and games, your eyes view images through two lenses that comes together to create one sharp picture. Your eyes work together with your brain to interpret the virtual reality technology.

Price about VR One and tray for smartphone

The Zeiss VR One retails for US$99, including one phone tray of your choice. An additional tray will cost you $10, and the company is planning on releasing trays for other handsets, as long as their screen sizes fall between 4.7 and 5.2 inches.
