Merge VR Goggles promise immersive gaming using your smartphone’s display
Experiencing augmented reality with a VR headset is gaining popularity in current times, and even more so with the option of morphing your smartphone into a display for such kind of headsets. We have had LG come up with a Google Cardboard based VR headset and Samsung Gear VR that utilizes the Galaxy Note 4’s amazing display to the fullest. Young entrepreneurs at San Antonio-based Merge Virtual Reality are longing to do the same, with the controversial iPhone 6 Plus and other major Android-powered smartphones. Infact, the VR Goggles are compatible with most Android and iOS smartphones, and already there is a 360-degree video and VR apps on Apple App Store and Google Play.

Merge VR claim this headset to be the most comfortable VR Googles in the market courtesy its foam design, and also boast of the VR Motion Controller’s capability for immersive gaming and controlling the displayed content. The 9-axis motion sensor equipped controller can be connected to your Android or iOS smartphone and you can enjoy immersive gaming in a 3D environment. MergeVR Controller has 8 buttons and a thumbstick which can be easily controlled with one hand too.
