The first thing you need to understand prior to you think about purchasing one of these affordable VR headsets is that you will need an Android or iOS mobile phone to use them.
It was apparent when I opened the bundle with the VR Shinecon headset, that they were a big step above the Reagan Arts Virtual Reality headset that I had tried last year. Instead of a DIY folding audience made of cardboard, the VR Shinecon is a plastic headset with pleather covered cushioning, and an adjustable head strap.
The front of the headset has a detatchable magnetic cover that can be gotten rid of if the 3D app has to utilize your smart device’s electronic camera.
The whole front cover of the headset turns down to expose the smartphone holder.
On both sides of the headset are knobs that extend the front area of the headset to help in image focusing. In the image above, you can see that the front of the headset is entirely extended. Generally the silver colored area is flush with the main body of the headset.
In the top center of the headset is the student distance change knob.
Turning the knob will change the range of the headset’s lenses. In the image above, the lenses are close together.
Turning the pupil range knobs broadens the distance in between the lenses.
To use the VR Shinecon headset, you’ll need a mobile phone. I evaluated the headset with my Nexus 6P.
The 6P just barely fit in the holder which has spring packed arms that spread out available to grip the phone. The headset can be utilized with phones that have display screens that are 4.7– 6 inches.
The headset came with no guidelines except for two QR codes. The first one I scanned took me to the VR Shinecon website which does not have an English variation, and the second QR code wanted me to install an APK app on my phone. I was reluctant to do so, so I headed over to the Google Play shop and downloaded the Google Cardboard app which offers connect to 3D apps and integrated in 3D demos.
With my phone in the holder, the app installed and running, I was ready to start using the headset. Unfortunately I faced a big issue when I aimed to place the headset over my existing glasses. The frames of my glasses were too broad to fit between the padding of the viewer without using force, which I didn’t wish to do for worry of breaking my frames. I was shocked that they would not fit because my frames are less than 5.25 inches wide from temple to temple.
With my glasses eliminated, the headset fit completely, however given that my vision is bad, the image in the audience was not clear, causing the experience to be disappointing.
Most of the demonstrations consisted of with the Google Cardboard app have animation graphics instead of real graphics. The apps utilize the gyroscope in your phone to move what’s on the screen as you move your head up, down, left and right.
There are demos that let you walk around gardens.
And take guided tours through popular landmarks.
In addition to not being able to see the screen effectively without my glasses, I quickly understood that the VR Shinecon headset does not have a crucial function– the ability to tap the screen. With the Google Cardboard viewers, there’s a “button” that can be utilized to connect with the apps. There isn’t really such a button with the VR Shinecon. I contacted Elegiant who sent me the evaluation sample and they informed me that you can utilize a Bluetooth video gaming controller like the one they cost less than $7. Since I didn’t have such a controller, it made testing the headset a little less fun than it could have been.
Are the VR Shinecon Virtual Reality Glasses better than the DIY Google Cardboard audiences? Yes, the majority of definitely. They are comfy (if you do not wear glasses or have frames that are not more than 5 inches broad. The head strap lets you wear the headset without needing to continuously hold it up to your face like the more affordable cardboard viewers. The only things missing from the VR Shinecon are better English instructions, a Bluetooth controller and assistance on where to discover apps and 3D movies that you can use with this headset.Shinecon Vr Glasses ReviewVirtual Reality Headset Zombie GameVirtual Reality Gaming Technology 2016
