What is Virtual Reality (VR)?

Virtual reality is a fully immersive digital experience where users interact within a simulated environment.

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

Augmented reality enhances your physical world by overlaying digital objects, enabling users to interact with holograms in real time.

How are VR and AR different from each other?

VR transports you to an artificial, computer-generated environment immersing you in a new world. In contrast, AR digitally imposes images onto your current environment, allowing you to see an "augmented" version of the world around you.

How does the technology work?

We use the iPhone screen to project stereoscopic images onto a set of semi-reflective lenses. Some of the projected light reflects back into your eyes, creating the illusion of a 3D object.

Yes, it is safe. We have tested it extensively for both short term and long term settings.
