Initially, the VR One will be come with compatible with the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5

Carl Zeiss, the renowned optics manufacturer, has decided to make way for its own alternative to Samsung’s Gear VR headset that uses an inserted smartphone to generate a 3D world. However, it differs widely from the Samsung offering since Carl Zeiss VR One is going to offer compatibility with a wide range of smartphones which range between 4.7″ and 5.2″. However, you will be required to purchase a special tray for each new device.

There is going to be a wide range of trays for the VR One but initially there will only be support for the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5. The asking price of the device is going to be $99 and with every additional tray you will be required to shell out $10.

The device will be accompanied by two multimedia apps in which you can watch the 3D movies, browse photos, and use Google’s street view. In the product’s advertisement, the company is also claiming the device’s ability to “interact with Augmented Reality” however we aren’t really sure what this new feature exactly means.
