Finally a Solution for iPhone!
Were you awaiting the premiere of a new iPhone? So were we and - as it seems - it was well worth waiting.
Feel special thanks to exclusive Cmoar iPhone Edition! We provide a unique base for iPhone 6 Plus, which fits it just perfect!
Thanks to Cmoar you will be able to expand your iPhone’s capabilities beyond the limits. Cmoar is one of the few headsets that is dedicated to such sizeable smartphones. More importantly, the team of our developers creates games and apps for Apple devices to give you even more possibilities.
Cmoar VR Headset just launched on Kickstarter.com and with 30% funds within a day it certainly will be a success!
Cmoar offers lot's of features that at the moment are not available for iPhones: Integrated Motion detection, Motion controller gamepad, buttons and output for USB and headphones! Other VR headset do not have intergrated hardware and rely on external controllers.
This is not just a piece of plastic with a strap and a set of lenses... Cmoar is a device capable of sending your movements to the iPhone.
This will be the first VR headset with integrated Accelerometer, magnetometer and Gyroscope for iPhones. This means latency will drop and the immersion rises.
The basic VR headset will cost early birds 99$, which seems incredibly cheap compared to other VR headsets.
If these guys succeed in delivering the promised product, this will likely be the first "Gear-VR like" VR headset compatible with an iPhone!
ION VR could become their competitor in the built-in hardware race as they also announced their VR headset which can be pre ordered and is expected to be delivered Q1 2016. If you can't wait that long, there are pretty fun and affordable VR headsets like Homido VR and Noon VR widely available.
Compatible with iPhone 5, 5s, 5c 6, 6 plus, 6s and 6s plus.
Buttons and input
As seen on the pictures bellow, the Cmoar (See More) has buttons to control your iPhone on the right side, volume buttons and a headphone input on the left and a USB and micro USB on the top.
You can also order a GamePad (49$), a PowerBank (19$) and a Stand (29$).
