Moggles Or How To Transform Your Smartphone Into A Virtual Reality Headset
There was a time, not too long ago, when playing with Virtual Reality gadgets such as the Oculus Rift was not a cheap hobby!
But things change, and, as technology advances with big leaps, such cool devices become more and more accessible for reasonable prices!

The Moggles is another example of cool gadget that just a few short years back was reserved to fat wallets! The Moggles is a Virtual Reality Console that relies entirely on your smartphone’s processing power and gives you a 200” 3D screen with 360 degrees head tracking, anywhere you want! So how does it work? First grab your iPhone or Android devices and install any of the 120+ apps and games available for Google Cardboard; insert your phone into the Moggles VR Console, mount the headset and you’re ready to roll! The content plays on your phone, the headset ads a bit of visual and audio magic and you find yourself immersed in the beautiful work or virtual reality!

The Moggles work with all iPhone models and Android devices between 4-in and 5.7-in, sport custom made adjustable aspherical lenses for +- two dioptres and IPD, allow Augmented Reality apps usage via the phone camera, feature side openings for earphones and, when not in use, fold into a small sized portable package for easy transportation.
The Moggles are in project mode at Indiegogo and you can secure a pair for an early bird price of $79 US.
