It seems like that would hurt your eyes... Am I wrong or do they have some way of making sure that doesn't happen?
It can't be nearly as good as OculusVR, considering the difference between displays.. one is made 100% for VR and the other one is a phone :| gimmick, says I!
Strictly for phones? I didn't even realize this was a thing... Does Samsung and Oculus have similar plans?
Low-cost entry to OK-quality VR, says I and the millions who will buy this when compatible drawers are made for their phones. Sign me up for a Nexus 5. I have Google Cardboard, and it does VR surprisingly well. Of COURSE, it's not Rift quality, but for less than $20, it's great for those waiting for the consumer release of Rift or those who will never be willing to pay the cost of the coming generation of VR. The following generation will be much better and cheaper. Most people will be holding out for that. Until then, offerings like the Carl Zeiss VR One will tempt many to get their VR feet wet.
I really need to try one. I just don't see how your phones screen that close to your face can engulf your eyes enough to make you think you are in VR, provide the right depth perception (one reason being a smartphone screen is flat), fool your peripheral vision, and provide enough imagine detail without straining your eyes while they focus. butttt I hope I am wrong and I want to try one!!!!
