  1. I never knew about this device before now. Thanks for the update.

  2. It has been reported that this device is marketed as a VR smartphone, then what is VR actually about?

  3. Virtual reality can be defined as the world transmitted to man through his senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and others. Virtual Reality imitates an exposure and response to the impact.

  4. It was reported that the development of virtual reality began in the 50s. In 1961, Philco Corporation developed the first virtual reality helmets Headsight for military purposes, and this was the first application of the technology in real life. But based on the current classification system, it more likely would relate to the AR-technology.
