HYPER Brings 3D Sound and 120-Degree FOV to Google Cardboard Dylan Duarte March 15, 2016 News Google Cardboard is notable for letting people experience virtual reality for a very low entry cost. HYPER’s new virtual reality headset bumps that cost up a bit, but not by much, and it sounds like a pretty impressive package for just fifty bucks. The BOBOVR Z4 Smartphone Virtual Headset is the first of its kind to offer a 120-degree field of view and integrated 3D surround sound headphones. It will work with any iPhone, Android, or Windows smartphone that’s in between four and six inches. You simply need a Google Cardboard compatible app or any app that can display 2 screen, stereoscopic content. Though the 120-degree field of view sounds pretty nice, it’s the built-in headphones that have my attention. Google Cardboard is intended to be the poor man’s VR, and it excels quite nicely in that regard, but I see nothing wrong with HYPER elevating it to the frugal man’s VR. The BOBOVR Z4 Smartphone Virtual Headset will be available in March (that’s this month!) for $59.99, though it can be pre-ordered now for $49.99. Check out the full press release below for all the details.
