VR Shinecon Virtual Reality Glasses review
Virtual truth headsets like the much spoken about Oculus Rift are the next big thing in immersive home entertainment and education. Seeming like you’re truly part of a game, “taking a trip” to brand-new locations without leaving your home and learning brand-new skills from your sofa are quickly becoming a reality. Just a few weeks earlier, I read a short article about physicians who used Google Cardboard to help save an infant’s life by practicing a fragile surgery using the low-cost do-it-yourself VR headset. There are several extremely inexpensive Google Cardboard suitable viewers that are priced at less than $25, but the VR Shinecon Virtual Reality Glasses that I wish to reveal you today provide a superior look and feel for only $10 more. However are they worth the additional money? Let’s have a look.Vr Shinecon Sc-C08 Wireless Remote ControlVirtual Reality Headset Zeiss Vr OneVirtual Reality Gaming Seattle

The first thing you ought to know prior to you think about purchasing among these low-cost VR headsets is that you will require an Android or iOS smart device to use them.
It was obvious when I opened the package with the VR Shinecon headset, that they were a huge action above the Reagan Arts Virtual Reality headset that I had actually attempted last year. Instead of a DIY folding viewer made from cardboard, the VR Shinecon is a plastic headset with pleather covered padding, and an adjustable head strap.
The front of the headset has a detatchable magnetic cover that can be eliminated if the 3D app has to use your smartphone’s video camera.
The whole front cover of the headset flips down to reveal the smartphone holder.
On both sides of the headset are knobs that extend the front section of the headset to aid in image focusing. In the image above, you can see that the front of the headset is completely extended. Usually the silver colored section is flush with the main body of the headset.
In the top center of the headset is the student distance modification 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 range in between the lenses.
To utilize the VR Shinecon headset, you’ll require a smartphone. I tested the headset with my Nexus 6P.
The 6P just hardly fit in the holder which has spring crammed arms that spread open to grip the phone. The headset can be used with phones that have display screens that are 4.7– 6 inches.
The headset included no instructions except for two QR codes. The first one I scanned took me to the VR Shinecon site which does not have an English version, and the second QR code wanted me to set up an APK app on my phone. I was hesitant to do so, so I headed over to the Google Play shop and downloaded the Google Cardboard app which supplies links to 3D apps and integrated in 3D demonstrations.
With my phone in the holder, the app installed and running, I was all set to start using the headset. Sadly I faced a big problem when I tried to put the headset over my existing glasses. The frames of my glasses were too broad to fit between the cushioning of the audience without using force, which I didn’t want to do for worry of breaking my frames. I was amazed that they would not fit because my frames are less than 5.25 inches wide from temple to temple.
With my glasses got rid of, the headset fit perfectly, but since my vision is not good, the image in the viewer was not clear, causing the experience to be disappointing.
The majority of the demonstrations included with the Google Cardboard app have cartoon graphics rather of genuine graphics. The apps utilize the gyroscope in your phone to move exactly what’s on the display as you move your head up, down, left and right.
There are demonstrations that let you walk gardens.
And take directed tours through popular landmarks.
In addition to not having the ability to see the screen extremely well without my glasses, I quickly understood that the VR Shinecon headset does not have an essential feature– the ability to tap the screen. With the Google Cardboard viewers, there’s a “button” that can be utilized to interact with the apps. There isn’t really such a button with the VR Shinecon. I got in touch with Elegiant who sent me the review sample and they told me that you can utilize a Bluetooth gaming controller like the one they sell for less than $7. Since I didn’t have such a controller, it made checking the headset a little less enjoyable than it could have been.
Are the VR Shinecon Virtual Reality Glasses much better than the DIY Google Cardboard viewers? Yes, the majority of definitely. They are comfy (if you don’t use glasses or have frames that are not more than 5 inches broad. The head strap lets you wear the headset without having to continuously hold it as much as your face like the cheaper cardboard audiences. The only things missing from the VR Shinecon are much better English instructions, a Bluetooth controller and assistance on where to find apps and 3D movies that you can use with this headset.Vr Shinecon Sc-C08 Wireless Remote ControlVirtual Reality Headset Zeiss Vr OneVirtual Reality Gaming Seattle
