The Merge VR headset has been launched in India at Rs. 5,399 and is available for purchase through Amazon. The headset is compatible with both iPhone and Android smartphones, and was launched in select markets in November last year.
As the headset is not of standalone kind, it doesn't come with an inbuilt screen and requires your smartphone to provide the virtual-reality experience. The Merge VR headset has been created with soft foam so that it fits easily onto the head of the user.
The Merge VR headset features dual touch inputs, which are compatible with VR apps and therefore eliminate the need of a controller. Users can use Merge Start, the company's official virtual reality app, for access to curated collection of VR content that is compatible with the Merge VR headset.
"Explore apps ranging from games and 360 videos, to virtual tourism to education and more. On Merge Start, you can also read our guide to mobile VR, watch video tutorials and access all the information you'll need for the best virtual reality experiences possible," the company said in its product listing.
In terms of recommended devices, the company has listed out smartphone models iPhone 6 and newer, Galaxy S5 and newer, HTC One M8 and newer, LG G4 and newer. It says that the headset is compatible with most iOS and Android devices from the last 2 years and fits iPhone 5 to iPhone 6 Plus in size.
