Similar to Samsung’s VR Gear, but much cheaper, with great build quality
The VR-BOX 2 is a head mounted plastic 3D virtual reality headset, similar to ‘Google Cardboard’ (but durable plastic, and more). This VR Box 2 comes with a deluxe controller, pictured above. The controller/gamepad allows the user to interact with his/her phone, while in the VR environment.

Unlike the VR Box 1, the VR Box 2 includes a Bluetooth gamepad as standard, and features blue glass.
Like the VR Box 1, the VR Box 2 feels reassuringly solid, with thick adjustable headstraps for improved head support, and nice soft padding to ensure comfy contact. Lenses are really good; reportedly better than Google Cardboard, affording a more immersive experience. They are adjustable, left, right, backwards and forward, to calibrate vision. Good air circulation sees to the dissipation of heat (phones heat up while processing 3D).
To use, a smart phone is inserted into a removable cradle, which is quickly sized to safely secure the phone in place. To sum up, it feels like a premium product.
How does the VR BOX/Phone/App Combination work?
With two lenses positioned in front of the phone screen, software generates separate images, each with a slightly different perspective for each eye, which the brain interprets as 3D. The phone’s gyroscope sensor tracks head movement, and virtual reality apps match the rendered image to the current view direction, allowing the user to look around.
