Design

 


The VR Box comes in all black except from the white “storm trooper” plastic front panel. I’m a fan of VR Box looks and think the extra grill details on the front make it feel a little more premium. Attached to the side and top is a stretchy elastic strap that you can easily adjust to fit your head no matter how wonky it is.

Another aspect of the VR Box I like is the addition of the removable panel on the front. This allows the use of the phone camera whilst still using the VR headset, which is awesome! Let me know if you’ve found any apps that use the camera in the comments below as I couldn’t find any in the play store yet.

The Optical adjuster on top work well. You have the option to move each lens individual forwards, backwards, left & right allowing you to get the optimal focus.

Comfort


VR Box have done a good job with the sponge cushioning around the rim.The material is very soft and feels well padded (it feels a lot softer than it looks in the pictures).

You might notice that the first time you wear the VR Box you notice the plastic strap connector digging into the back of your head. A quick solution to this is to bend it into a slightly curved shape so it fits the contours of your head more closely.

 

Setting up & testing the VR Box


The VR Box comes pre-assembled in a no-frills cardboard box with the few essentials you’ll need to get you going.

So how does it work? The VR Box uses side-by-side images and dual-optics to create the illusion of one 3D image or video.

    Open YouTube and search “3D VR”.
    Select a video
    Place your smartphone into the VR Box plastic insert
    Insert this into the VR Box.
    Put on the headset
    Adjust the optics until the image becomes clear.


Inserting your phone is easy, just pull back the spring mechanism and insert your phone. The insert pressure feels just about right keeping your phone held firmly. Once your phone is secure you then slide the tray into the headset (top tip: much easier with the headset off than on). The VR Box takes phones with a maximum width of 3 inches (7.5cm) and a maximum length of 6 inches (15cm).

Official specifications say the VR Box fits phones between 4.7 – 6 inches. There is a slightly curved edge so you may be able to squeeze a slightly longer phone in depending on its size and shape.

It’s also worth mentioning that if your phone has a full HD screen then definitely look for Full HD VR content as anything less can look at little grainy when viewed in VR.

VR Games & Apps


Your best bet in finding a decent VR experience is to search VR on the Google Play store. The availability of games is growing but I still found it to be quite limited. Also, there isn’t an easy way to search for only VR-enabled games and apps so finding the hidden gems takes a bit of trial and error.
 

We’ve listed some of the best free VR games and apps below:


    Insidious VR (free): This is essentially a trailer for the horror film Insidious where you can look around in 3D.
    Galaxy VR (free demo): A space shooter game where you control a fighter ship from the cockpit.
    Cardboard Camera by Google (free): A selection of 360 degrees photos that you can look through by turning your head.
    Deep Space VR (free): You control a space gun shooting where you headset looks.
    Star VR Racer (free): A Tron-like platformer where you avoid crashing as the game speeds up
 

VR videos


Luckily on YouTube, there is already a large amount of VR content to view on the VR Box headset. The easiest way to find this is to search for ‘Cardboard VR’ or ‘VR 3D’. If possible always try to go for 1080P content and above as I found that this provides the best experience.
Headphones

If you are going to use headphones with the VR Box, (which you definitely should be to get a more immersive experience), then make sure your headphone port is facing right so that when you remove your phone the headphone wire comes out with the insert.
