Tesseract Holoboard Basic Edition review

The Tesseract Holoboard Basic Edition is an augmented reality headset for smartphones by Tesseract, a manufacturer based in India. This device is compatible with smartphones running iOS 10.0 and above or Android 6.0 and above.

This head-mounted display works with Apple, Google and Samsung flagship smartphones and additional models as well.

The Holoboard Basic Edition uses IMU (inertial measurement unit) based tracking as well as proprietary marker-based tracking that makes use of the phone’s front camera. This allows users to interact and place 3D content within the area directly around them.

Tesseract has created three different versions of its Holoboard headset: the Basic Edition, the Premium Edition, and the Enterprise Edition. The Basic Edition is the only device compatible with both iOS and Android.
