Carl Zeiss VR One

 

With the launch of the top-of-the-range VR headsets imminent – I'm talking here about the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR – it's no surprise that there are additional VR models emerging to fill out the lower end of the market.

Comfortable ; Solid build quality ; Fantastic lenses that don't mist ; Works with Android and iOS

No lens adjustment ; Fairly expensive ; Requires a Bluetooth controller/mouse for full functionality

A VR headset offering superb build quality. However, it's let down by sub-par apps and missing features.

Conclusions The Zeiss VR One would stand out as a quality universal mobile headset with excellent optics and a sturdy, comfortable design that helps justify its high price. Unfortunately, its lack of a magnetic switch is a significant design flaw. You...

Review: Zeiss VR One virtual reality headset (for iPhone 6)

 

Any company that's been making lenses for 169 years is probably good at adapting. So perhaps it makes sense that German company Carl Zeiss AG (better known today simply as "Zeiss") didn't waste time jumping into the new frontier of virtual reality....

This also means that, as long as Zeiss keeps making new trays for new phones, the headset itself won't become obsolete. The company has support for more phones in the pipeline, though this headset won't work with any phones with displays larger than...
