Worst product ever Mattel should be ashamed for even releasing this garbage. Finally get past that passcode nonsense and now it just freezes at a help screen. I did nothing to indicate I wanted help. What a horrible experience. The grandparents keep asking how my son liked it and I can't even tell them. They thought it was the same viewmaster I enjoyed as a child.
I tried this with Samsung A5-2016, Sony M5 Aqua and didn't work properly although it accepted the passcard. Then after checking their website, I found out that the viewmaster googles are suitable with limited phones and versions including HTC One. Luckily, we had a spare HTC at home and I tried on HTC One. Guess what? It wont even accept the pass card. Please help me solve this problem. I didn't know that I was supposed to buy a new iPhone with these googles!!!
Longer setup but worth it I definitely struggled a little with the set up and I noticed that you have to be in just the right lighting and have the phone positioned just right when trying to pick up the reels. I also kept my phone out of the viewer until it was all set. But after that the kids loved it and the adults too. I will be looking into what other reels there are!
So much promise, poorly executed You buy the reels which do nothing, the viewer which is no different from Google cardboard, and finally download the app which is where all the content is. If you were smart enough to just get the app you might enjoy a pretty good learning experience. The tour of the ISS is really nice. But in just a few minutes I've already noticed one HUGE mistake that undermines my confidence in everything this thing is trying to teach: the virtual Earth is spinning the wrong way! Or does the sun rise in the West now?
I love it Although its not very easy to setup, it totally worth it. Pros: affordable VR experience, excellent picture and sounds effects. Cons: Hard to use the reel (augmented reality), mobile gets very hot after few minutes. New versions have very good power consumption I was very impressed!!
No Help at All Unusable for me, as it always gets stuck on the help screen when I try to start the demo and I cannot find a solution to get past it. It will not register any input there. How disappointing!
