Altergaze Goggles review

The Altergaze Goggles are virtual reality goggles for smartphones made by Altergaze, a manufacturer based in London in England.

This VR viewer uses a smartphone to deliver a mobile VR experience. The Altergaze Goggles design is open-source and customizable. Therefore, users that own a 3D printer have the possibility to 3D print these VR goggles at home (apart from lenses and screws) and adapt its size for use with different smartphone sizes.

The user must hold the device up to their face, as it doesn’t come with any headstrap. This 110° FOV VR viewer boasts an easy access to the user’s smartphone in case they receive a phone call when in use.

Some users highlight a minor screen-door effect with this mobile VR viewer.

Altergaze VR viewer main features

  • Customizable size: since it is open-source, designers and makers can experiment and adjust the design of the VR viewer according to their needs.
  • Compatible with many VR applications: the Altergaze VR viewer is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones. Therefore, it is possible to access the large variety of VR content available on the App Store and Google Play.
  • Open distribution: anyone that owns a 3D printer can become an official distributor of these Altergaze Goggles.
