$99 Virtual Reality!

$99 Virtual Reality!


Welcome to the new three-dimensional
Unbox Therapy starting today. What’s up guys Lew here back with
another video, and today i’m checking out a VR headset. It’s more of a holder because it still
requires your phone in order to operate. But, it’s pretty cool it’s definitely a
step up on the google cardboard concept. You slide your phone in. I’ve got the holder here for the iphone
6 but they have holders for other popular phones as well and you get a
more ski goggle-like type fit, that’s comfortable and stays on without
the need to hold it there like google cardboard. This one, from Zeiss, is about
99 bucks I believe. Links in the description to
all of the relevant information. It supports smartphones 4.7
to 5.2 inches. Simply put your smartphone into the tray, slide it into the glasses. Let’s go ahead,
jump inside the box. I always say, “jump inside” like I’m going
to physically jump in there, but i like it. Sounds more exciting than, “Open the
box up.” A little bit of tape. Trusty blade. Wow. This is more serious than I expected. Whoa! Look at the… That thing is solid. Here’s a manual for how to get started.
You can use the headphones. That’s cool. So you still have access to
the headphone port. Very nice. Very cool. Our little box for the
augmented reality experience. I’m gonna go ahead, and make this
little box right now. Because I’m crafty like that. Now this is the headset. Ski or snowboard
goggles that’s what comes to mind when you see this thing. And this channel
right here is where your phone slides in. A legit headband. Headstrap I
guess is optional. And as you know, Zeiss is known for their high quality
lenses. You have this padding here. It’s kind of like a microfiber on top of a
foam. Should be comfy. It’s not too heavy, which is good. Here is
the attachment for the iphone 6 but as i said before, you can use this with some
other devices. Wow that’s simple. And then we simply slide
it in like that. Oh wow! So, comfortable even with my glasses. That’s a big plus.
That’s actually pretty comfy. I probably look pretty cool right now right? Jack? Don’t lie to me. It’s time to install the
Zeiss apps. What if I do, “Zeiss VR”? That must do it. There we go. VRONE cinema, let’s get that. VRONE media, let’s get that. Hmm. Let’s do the cinema
first. You have a stereoscopic image here, so there’s a left channel and the right
channel. Essentially, when paired with these
lenses, that’s what creates the immersive experience. Here we… Oh! Wow! It’s an actual movie happening in here. what! a play? How do i click? Is threre a click on here?
How do i click to do it? Jack Jack oh I have nothing to play I have to pick something oh wow ok so i
pick a movie oh wow uses the experience of like
sitting in a movie theater we’re talking about a huge screen out here how do i exit out now though one side of
it oh there’s a door Wow now i’m in the media launcher and
there’s all kinds of apps here! Auto track VR, our roller coaster vr zombie
shooter?! install by the way I think I need that top strap because otherwise
this is a little tight little pinch so we go oh yeah money in the bank this is zombie shooter vr which
apparently works with this headset so of course that’s the next thing for me to
try oh my goodness this is a little much i’m
picking an ak-47 right now how do I shoot it oh jesus, i got ’em, i got a zombie
sighting oh man this one’s coming quick that’s
a female zombie right there *laughter* Get away from me man! oh no, keep shooting! No! Jesus… I died man, well anyways.. I i should try out with that one one
last Zeiss app that’s an amazing VR experience you
can get just with the simple contraption like this in your phone ok so the way this interface works is
the apps that you have installed in this universe are all managed from this
interface so you don’t actually have to back out so say i installed VR
fitness, VR player tuscany froggy all these things they
would show up here in the top and instead of having an install button
would have a launch button like it does for the AR and it does for the cinema
and i’m going to try this be our exposition whoa whoa I’m in an art gallery right
now guys it’s just I’m just in an art gallery oh
what the that’s how you exit I’m going to launch
the augmented reality right now with this little box somewhere over here this
little box, this should be fun ok so right now I’m seeing my set up the
whole studio thing here I see you know Wow hands and via my knife look at that without even see my own
hand super smooth oh what what there’s a dude
right now standing I just poked him he’s about that big I
just poke him again now i have like a space shuttle over
here and there’s a battle going on warrior princess type girl with a staff
this is the kind of thing that you need to experience in real life and i
recommend you do all right so yeah man like it’s so hard
to explain it you guys can see sort of there can get
an idea to different images there when you’re looking at them through these
lenses augmented reality headset VR headset emerged tricking your brain into
seeing three dimensional space and here comes a shark oh not good this is not good can you imagine like loading up a bunch
of movies put this on an airplane or something or a bunch of TV shows a binge
watching and not having to hold your phone in front of your face and getting
a way bigger field of view look at this you still have access here to your
charge port as well as your headphone lenses are crystal clear obviously this
is a step up from google cardboard and zeiss has a history of making a
beautiful glass so hey jumping into VR why not so there you
have it the zeiss vr1 inexpensive relatively speaking vr headset if you’re looking to
experiment with this stuff i recommend checking it out for sure if
you haven’t tried vr yet it’s time there’s very little holding
you back you could be swimming with the sharks
just like me or course getting attacked by zombies
probably not going to do that again I’ve gotta wait for me then I’ve said it
