Virtual reality can give us a new way of communicating experiences, without any abstraction or interpretation.
LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2014
Tech pioneer KOOM VR today announced the company will begin accepting orders for the NOON virtual reality (VR) headset on December 1, in time for the holiday gift giving season. The NOON VR headset will be the first affordable high quality headset which, when paired with a smartphone and virtual reality app, such as NOON’s free KOOM app, transcends users into a riveting virtual reality experience.
NOON VR headset is compatible with most smartphones and virtual reality apps, though it is best optimized for KOOM, an app that utilizes smartphone’s native capabilities such as sensors, on-screen display and computing power, to view VR content from the smartphone itself. The headset will be available for $79, providing high-quality virtual reality content at an affordable price. Users can immerse themselves in first-person RPG games or watch 3D or standard movies with an IMAX-like big screen, all from the comfort of their couch.
“We have set out to facilitate the creation and sharing of immersive video and making virtual reality content accessible and affordable to more people,” said Kwang-Jin Choi, CTO of KOOM VR. “Virtual reality can give us a new way of communicating experiences, without any abstraction or interpretation. NOON VR and the ability to share content through the KOOM VR app will allow anyone to be completely submerged in a new reality.”
NOON VR headset features include:
- High quality lenses: Large, wide-angle lenses offer a breathtaking 95-degree (per lens) field of view for a better, more spellbound experience. An easily accessible dial atop the headset makes focusing easy for any user who may be near or farsighted.
- User input: Users navigate the interface with simple head movements to hover over the icons and features by gazing at them and tapping anywhere on the phone to send commands to play or pause a movie, or access the settings menu.
- Portability: There are no external wires, no PC connect, or any other external devices. NOON VR is the lightest virtual reality headset on the market, weighing only 230g.
- Versatility with the latest smartphones: NOON VR is compatible with most smartphones with screen size 4.7 inches or larger, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Note 3, Note 4, iPhone 6, iPhone 6+, LG Optimus G3 and LG Optimus G3a. Compatibility will be coming soon for Sony Xperia A, Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, Xiaomi Mi3, Sharp Aquos Zeta SH-01F, Huawei Honor 3C, Google Nexus 5, and Motorola Moto X.
NOON VR has additional superior features, including fast and secure one-snap smartphone docking, ultra fast head tracking for smartphone sensors, no power consumption, optimized lens distortion for supported smartphones and advanced air ventilation to prevent lens fog.
As a companion to the NOON VR headset, KOOM VR is the leading online distribution platform for immersive virtual reality video and entertainment content that can allow anyone to easily browse, view, upload, stream and experience VR on mobile and non-mobile VR devices. The KOOM app also allows users to create and share immersive content with others, through the KOOM VR app video section.
