From the makers of Merge VR:
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Virtual reality technology has been around the corner for a long time, and it’s closer than ever to being a real part of every day life. Our idea was simple: find a way to share this technology with as many as people as possible, and keep it simple. At Merge, we’ve been working hard every day to break down barriers standing between you and full immersion in the virtual world.
What makes your product special?
The Merge VR Goggles are designed thoughtfully with real people in mind. Made of a high-end polyurethane foam, they’re super durable, easy to clean, lightweight, and made to comfortably fit the contours of every face. Adjustable lenses and straps provide a more comfortable experience for each user. The Merge VR Goggles are compatible with any Android or iOS smartphone from the last two years, which means they’re wireless, cost effective, and best of all - really simple to use.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
We are so fortunate to have a great team of dedicated, creative people working together every day to bring virtual reality to the millions of people who want to try it.
