Archos Reveals Smartphone-Based Archos VR Glasses

VRFocus - Three of the biggest names in the technology have gotten involved with virtual reality (VR) technology in 2014 to some degree. Google's Cardboard VR concept proved an interesting alternative for low-cost VR while Samsung revealed a more premium smartphone-based VR head-mounted display (HMD) in Gear VR. Then of course there's Project Morpheus, the upcoming HMD from Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) for the PlayStation 4. This week sees French technology firm Archos add its name to that list.

The story is too old to be commented.

Closer and closer to the Matrix every year...or what's that other Bruce Willis movie? Someone please google for me...

I googled it, the movie was Surrogates.

Where everyone has a VR machine and controls a younger, hotter avatar like android. And no one goes outside anymore or anything. They just live through their androids.

I was thinking the other day, what if MS use this & Smart Glass to do VR?

Would mean anyone that can install Smart Glass could use the feature & yes it wouldn't be proper VR, but the phones now a days have HD res screens & gyroscopes so tracking head movements is possible.

They could transfer the game (transcoded to video) via wifi, thus no need for wires.
