Are you an iPhone user that’s feeling a bit left out when it comes to virtual reality? While Apple may very well be working on a secret virtual reality headset, the sad truth is that only Google has actually delivered on making an operating system that natively supports VR products. Don’t fret, though. All you need to do to get your game on with an Apple device is invest in your very own Merge VR remote — when it’s publicly available that is.
Still very much a prototype at this point, the Merge VR Remote is a 3D printed virtual reality remote controller that pairs seamlessly with the iPhone via Bluetooth technology. Once paired, you’ll find that you’ll be able to achieve an unparalleled level of control over your characters. The aforementioned control is achieved thanks to a one-handed “Wii remote” design with plenty of buttons and joysticks.
The Merge VR Remote requires a Merge VR Headset in order to function properly. Luckily both of them will be on sale as a bundle sometime next year.
