NOON VR Official Introduction from NOON on Vimeo.

First and foremost, let’s get something out of the way and that is how beautiful and stylish this virtual reality headset looks, one might think they’re in the possession of a device that fell from the future!

It worked flawlessly with the few apps tested and you do get to experience virtual reality whether it’s watching 360-degree videos or visiting a 3D rendered dinosaur world, it’s enjoyable and with very little to none hassle to make it happen.

Noon VR also features their own app, which after you authenticate your device, lets you turn normal 2D videos as well as stereoscopic 3D or 360 videos into immersive VR experiences.

Games on the other hand didn’t function as well as they should have or at least the ones that require some sort of interaction since the headset lacks the button that Google cardboard has and I could not get the alternative, tap on the back of the device to interact with the screen, to work, which is a shame when nearly everything else is great.

When it comes to compatibility, Noon VR will work on most Android devices (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher with screen size 4.7″ to 5.7″) as well as newer iOS phones (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus).

So to wrap this up, Noon VR offers a great and immersive VR experience for your mobile device, well designed and comfortable to use, it’s reasonably price ($70~$90) and I would recommend it to all except for gamers as it lacks the interaction needed for such.
