40 VR Viewer Designs

From 3D-Printed VRGoggles to Smartphone VR Accessories

— April 30, 2016 — Tech
These VR viewer designs are all effective tools for opening up a portal to a virtual world. These headsets can be extremely costly or affordable and have the ability to afford users different levels of control and immersion.

While leading technology companies are competing to develop the model that will be most used by the mainstream, in the meantime, others are creating affordable alternatives. Some of the most inventive virtual reality headsets can be created out of 3D-printed plastic or inexpensively assembled from a cereal box.

These VR viewer designs have the ability to be used for everything from entertainment to marketing, meaning that there is plenty of room for multiple headset styles with different features to co-exist in the future.
