Wolverhampton based company Wow! Stuff are about to release a superb range of Star Wars™ VR Viewers, bringing VR to the masses and all branded in the coolest Star Wars™ designs.
I had the opportunity to chat with Jim Wyatt, the Creative Director of Wow! Stuff for the next episode of Star Wars Collectors Cast and there you will hear about these great products in more detail as they reach the UK market at the end of September.
A new Star Wars™ Virtual Reality ‘VR’ Viewer is being anticipated as the most sought after gift this Christmas, with major retailer Argos, predicting it ‘will be a best seller’ when it becomes available at the end of September. The new Star Wars™ virtual reality viewer is available in a range of designs.
The Star Wars™ VR Viewers have been approved through the ‘Works with Google Cardboard’ programme, guaranteeing great quality and the best possible user experience.
James Kemp, Gift Buyer at Argos, said: “These new Star Wars™ Virtual Reality Viewers were kept under wraps for some time, so it was a very exciting moment when we first tried them. We anticipate that these will be a best seller for us both at Christmas and into the new year.”
Suitable for both children and adults, the range includes designs of the popular classic characters C-3P0, Darth Vader and R2-D2, as well as the iconic Stormtrooper design, plus BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The Star Wars™ VR Viewer lets users explore virtual reality worlds in 3D with a full 360-degree view, watch films and videos or play games. Compatible with almost any smartphone, it gives users access to thousands of apps in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, putting thousands of immersive 3D worlds right at your fingertips, all within seconds.
Designed by the British toy inventor company Wow! Stuff , the Star Wars™ VR Viewer features enhancements to the basic Google Cardboard Viewer specifications to further improve the user experience.
The optics are built using ultra-precise TRU-LENS technology. The lenses are slow injection moulded for superb image clarity, and then perfectly aligned using a finely tuned mechanical device, rather than by hand. This system ensures perfect alignment and avoids haze and double imaging common with many low cost Viewers.
With an RRP of £15, the Star Wars™ VR Viewer is great value and will offer a virtual reality experience that’s out of this world.
Fits most smartphones with screens up to 6 inches including iPhone 6 and 6+, Galaxy 7 and 7 edge. Suitable for ages 8 to adult. Responsible viewing time should be respected.
