Experience augmented reality

One of the best features of the VR One is augmented reality. By using your smartphone’s rear camera, you can get a real-time view of your surroundings that can be overlaid with graphics to play games or just explore.

Zeiss have provided a developer API and materials that should make it easy to develop new apps for the device. The Zeiss VR One Media Launcher makes it easy to find new apps as they’re released, and discover more apps compatible with your VR ONE headset.

Use with iPhone 6 and Galaxy S5

The Zeiss VR ONE supports two of the most popular smartphones of the year: the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6. More smartphones will be supported in the future, with the Nexus 5 and Galaxy S4 being options most requested by users. If you’ve got either phone, order your Zeiss VR ONE below:
