The Occipital Bridge Headset for iPhone Takes On Mobile VR, AR
 

The Occipital Bridge is the soon to be released iPhone compatible VR and AR headset. This release could make other headsets in the market run for their money. Below is some information we have on the headset currently.

The Structure Sensor iPad accessory was manufactured by Occipital earlier. The device was able to scan a room or structure and in turn create a CAD drawing of them to be used for all kinds of purposes. We still do not know how the magic unfolded but what we do know is that the occipital is back.

This time it is making use of the same technology used in the Structure Sensor iPad accessory to give iPhone owners a proper augmented virtual reality headset. The headset is known as the Occipital Bridge.

The headset is able to create a 3D image of a room and feed the result in to software in the iPhone. This means augmented reality can be established. At least it is the best example of an augmented reality in mobile space.

Those of you who are thinking about the HTC Vive and Microsoft’s upcoming HoloLens must understand they are completely different things. The Occipital Bridge has the capacity to create an interactive world from a real one through a simple iPhone.

This ability can simply blow the market wide open. The headset will also come with a remote control. The remote control will look similar to a Wii Remote.

It can be used as a pointer within the software. The developers can buy the Occipital Bridge this month for $499 but customers will have to wait till March. The good news is that it will only cost $399.
