Zeiss VR One Plus in an exclusive test: VR (almost) "Made in Germany"

The Zeiss VR One Plus supports current smartphones with a diagonal of up to 5.5 inches. A new tracking technology expands the spectrum of possibilities.

Just in time for E3 2016, the traditional company Zeiss is announcing its revised VR headset VR One Plus. It should offer more options for apps and games and support all current smartphones with a diagonal of 4.7 to 5.5 inches, according to the optics specialist's press release. No special slots are required for this, as was the case with the predecessor VR One. Even the Apple flagship iPhone 6 Plus fits easily into the VR glasses. The now removable headband as well as the exchangeable foam should ensure comfort when wearing. Zeiss has not yet provided any information on price and availability.

Traditional manufacturer Zeiss is playing in the large VR market - but is the product also worthwhile? COMPUTER BILD makes the comparison to Gear VR.

A new tracking technology makes the headset a bit more interesting for gamers too. Here, the 3D specialist Dacuda provides the technology for determining the position. All head movements can thus be mapped in the room, even a look around the corner should be possible. With “NYSM2”, developer Sidekick is also presenting the right game at the Zeiss booth. The game for the movie "Now You See Me 2" is controlled only with head gestures. With over 1,000 VR apps, glasses should never be boring. “Cloudlingth FPV”, for example, places the user in the virtual pilot's seat of a drone and enables the camera to be controlled by moving his head.
