WHAT IS ALTERGAZE?

SMARTPHONE BASED VIRTUAL REALITY VISOR DESIGNED FOR CASUAL MOBILE GAMERS AND PRACTICAL VR APPLICATIONS

What makes us stand out?

 

3D printed

What makes our product unique is the use of 3D printing tech in order to offer a custom-made VR headset that is modular and can be upgraded with your smartphone.

Simple to use

Using the device everyone owns: your smartphone. You just slide your smartphone in the Altergaze headset and you are good to go. No wires, no headband, no desktop required. Making it easy to dip in and out of VR and share the device with others.

High Quality Optics

Using a multi-lens optical system of 50mm in diameter we are able to offer a high image quality VR experience where we utilise the full resolution of your smartphone without seeing the edges of your display.

COMPATIBLE WITH BOTH

IPHONE AND ANDROID



Initially Altergaze was developed for iPhone 5/5C/5S and iPod Touch 5th generation. However, as we embraced this new world of 3D printing and crowd-manufacturing Altergaze has become a headset compatible with any smartphone, regardless of platform and display size. Using a unique triple lens design, we can offer one of the highest image quality VR experience, custom built for your smartphone. With Altergaze we always use the full resolution of your display to offer an immersive and mobile VR experience.

MORE THAN JUST A VR HEADSET

A VIRTUAL REALITY ECOSYSTEM: AGVR

 

We are working with various companies to offer a complete Mobile VR experience for consumers - apps, games and hardware. So you can order an Altergaze Headset with confidance knowing that even though there are only a few Virtual Reality aplications available on the App Store and Google Play, more will come.
In a world driven by consumerism, where manufacturers are in a constant race for building as many units per minute as possible, Altergaze wants to try something different.

We empower 3D printer owners with the tools and materials to build and sell custom made Altergaze headsets in their local comunity.

By collaborating with 3D printer owners and 3D printing facilities from all around the world, we envision Altergaze to be a hand-made product, carefully crafted by one of our experienced partners based on orders and specifications. A product built with great care and pre-calibrated for you.

If you are a 3D printer owner you can find more information here: http://goo.gl/RSV7Y8.
After over a decade of working in Advertising and various CGI drive fields, the team behind Altergaze worked on developing a headset ideal for medium to large bespoke VR experiences to promote your brand.

We can help companies with both custom-made / bespoke headset to promote brands and organized events driven by Virtual Reality, as well as concept and software development.

Media says

 

"Altergaze: VR's new underdog?"

- Will Freeman -

"What is perhaps even more amazing about this project, is that - if successful - it will pave the way to a new product development, design and distribution paradigm based on 3D printing and mini local factories."

- Davide Sher -
3D Printing Industry

"Remember these from where you were a kid? It's a View-Master that shows you 3D images when you hold it in front of your eyes. These days it's kinda' retro. But a device called Altergaze is like a souped up version for the digital era"

- Jenny Marc -
Wall Street Journal - Digits

"21st century View-Master uses your phone to enter Virtual Reality"
