NOON VR Headset

Through virtual reality, we aim to connect immersive experiences not only between users and content developers like filmmakers and game developers, but between the users themselves.

KOOM VR, the virtual reality tech pioneer, today announced the launch of the NOON virtual reality (VR) headset, which is now available online, through Amazon and eBay, starting at $79. All US orders placed by Dec. 15 will receive free priority shipping, with a scheduled delivery before Christmas. Free shipping in time for the holidays is offered on 5,000 headset units, available in black or white, on a first-come first-served basis. More units will be available in early 2015, with additional color options.

The NOON VR headset is compatible with the latest smartphones and virtual reality apps which leverage a smartphone’s native capabilities including sensors, on-screen display and computing power, allowing users to view high quality virtual reality content from the smartphone itself. Frames, which each smartphone docks into, can be removed and switched out to fit additional phones. These frames can be purchased online, allowing one headset to be shared among multiple phones.

“Virtual reality is at the forefront of entertainment and gaming,” said Kwang-Jin Choi, CTO of KOOM VR. “Through virtual reality, we aim to connect immersive experiences not only between users and content developers like filmmakers and game developers, but between the users themselves. Producing high quality, affordable virtual reality headset allows more people to connect, share, and transcend reality.”

NOON VR has unequaled 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. The NOON VR headset offers optimal comfort with long-lasting, adjustable head straps and superior facemask padding.

Additional 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 8 ounces (230 grams).
  •     Versatility with the latest smartphones: NOON VR is compatible with most smartphones with a screen size of 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.
